As your friends find a boyfriend and get engaged, it is only natural to want the same love in your own life. For some reason, there is a myth out there that all the good men are taken. This just isn’t true. In reality, there are plenty of good men, but you have to look in the right place for them. By learning how to pray for a husband, you can take the first step toward finding the right husband for your life.
6 Easy Steps on How to Pray for a Good Husband
You probably won’t find the perfect husband at the mall or at school. You definitely won’t meet Mr. Right will drinking at a bar or dancing at a nightclub. If you want to find the right husband, you have to start with prayer. Through prayer, you can figure out the qualities you need in a husband and ask God to guide you to the right man. It takes only a few simple steps to get started. After that, you can leave the rest to God.
1. Write It Down
The first step is to write everything down. Research studies show that writing down your goals makes you more likely to achieve them, and these studies are right. When you see the goal in writing, it is like you are committing yourself to that plan. Even though this is a prayer to God, the same idea applies. There is also something truly special about writing out a message to God.
Once you have written out the message, read it out like you would any other prayer. You can keep writing new messages each day or whenever you think about it until you find the right person. God might not be able to answer your request right away because it is not a part His plan. All you can do is keep praying and let his holy power work through you.
Your own list might be different, but here are a few of the things that you might want in a husband.
– A husband who is attractive, but also possesses a good personality.
– A Godly man who lives his faith.
– A man who has a good sense of humor.
– A man who loves me and will only ever love me.
– A man who places his family’s needs above his own.
– A man who dedicates himself to marriage and never gives up on the relationship.
– A man who has a strong relationship with Jesus.
– An intelligent, capable man.
2. Fold It Up and Start to Pray
Now, fold up that letter and start to pray. You don’t have to spend hours in prayer. All you have to do is pray for God to send you such a man and believe that he will answer your prayers. You can also repeat the same prayer each night before bed.
3. Bury It
You don’t actually have to do this step, but it gives the prayer a sense of finality. Once you bury it, it is like your prayer becomes a part of God’s earth and all of his existence. You could also try something more unorthodox like dropping the letter from a rooftop or from a car window as you drive along. It doesn’t give your prayer any added weight, but it gives you a sense of releasing that prayer into the world.
4. Ask for Help
Don’t be shy! If you want to find the perfect husband, then ask everyone around you to pray for that as well. The Bible says that whenever two or more people are gathered together to pray, God is in their midst. Just make sure that you always ask people who actually pray instead of just saying that they will pray for you. These individuals do not have to be married or in a great relationship because God will still hear their prayer.
5. Keep Praying
Whatever happens, don’t give up! God does not respond in human time, so be patient. Keep praying daily for God to hear your prayers and find you a husband. Also, make sure that this is not your only prayer. God created all of mankind and the earth, so show him some gratitude. Don’t be one of those people who only prays to God when you need something.
An old saying says that God helps those who help themselves, and this is certainly true when it comes to marriage. If you pray for a husband and then sit at home alone, don’t be surprised if you never meet the right man. You have to get out into the world and meet people if you want to find Mr. Right. More importantly, you have to make sure that you are truly prepared for a husband.
What does being prepared mean? It means everything. You need to know how to have a good relationship and to listen to your spouse. You need to be ready for the ups and downs of the relationship. When you marry someone, you commit for a lifetime. Too many people get divorced because they weren’t willing to work through problems. Commit mentally before you ever decide to get married.
You need to make sure that you are spiritually prepared for a husband as well as mentally and emotionally prepared. Take a look around you and find the happiest couples you know. Do they seem well-matched? Does it seem like they are equals in terms of personality, intellect or looks?
There is a reason for this. The best relationships normally happen when both people are equals to one another. They are ideally matched so that neither partner is “too good” for the other. If you want to find an amazing, intelligent, compassionate man, you have to be just as amazing, intelligent and compassionate. Basically, you have to go back to that list in step one. Are you everything that you wrote down? Do you possess all of the qualities you want in a husband? If you cannot live up to your standards for a spouse, then you need to take some time to work on yourself. When you are as good as the partner you want to attract, try looking for a husband again.
6. Mr. Right Is Not Always the First Guy You Date
We should actually rewrite that heading because Mr. Right is rarely the first guy you date. It takes time to figure out what you want in a date, so it may take several relationships until you get it just right. He may be a great guy, but you quickly realize that you actually want a homebody or an adventuresome soul instead. Don’t worry—you can try again with someone new.
Even if you think that you find the right person, people are not always what they appear at first. He may seem outgoing on the first date, but you may quickly realize that he prefers to spend his weekends cuddling and reading. This is great if you want a cuddle buddy, but obviously not the right choice if you like socializing all the time. The only way to find out for sure if someone is right for you is to try dating them and get to know them better.
Remember: Just because someone seems amazing or works as a pastor, it doesn’t mean that they are actually Godly. Basically, don’t be fooled by a book’s cover. A husband is your partner for life, so you need to take your time and find the right one. When you finally meet the right man, God will let you know that he is prospective husband material.
As a side note, don’t limit yourself to just meeting a husband at your church. You never know who God will bring into your life, so keep your mind open. Someone could live just a few minutes away and never cross your path until just the right moment. When you are both ready, God will bring the perfect husband into your life.
Finally, just leave it up to God. God has a plan for your life, so don’t try to force the issue. If He thinks that you need to grow and develop before meeting Mr. Right, trust in God to make the right choice. Don’t stress about finding a husband because it will happen when God chooses. In the meantime, learn how to pray for a husband, be patient and work on becoming the type of spouse you want to meet.
