Hello, do you pray for your future spouse?
My name is Jewel Stanley. A Christian, Jesus Lover, a graduate of Political Science from the Federal University Lokoja, Kogi State Nigeria.
I am passionate about young ladies being independent. Ladies who are able to stand on their own instead of resorting to prostitution. We have an organization called The Balanced Ladies Hub. It is dedicated to teaching Ladies skills and vocations for free. We teach on prayer, we do Bible Studies, book reviews, and conferences; we have an online conference tagged “The Build Up! Series”, we also have outreaches, and we are actually planning one now.
The IGSM Campaign
- I- identity
- S- Sexual purity
- M- Menstrual Hygiene Campaign for Secondary schools, where we want to share at least 200 sanitary pads.
I also host a Podcast Titled “Praying for my Kohen Gadol. And that is what we will be focusing on today.
Kohen Gadol is the Hebrew Word for ‘High Priest’
The man you are to marry as a Christian lady should serve as a High Priest over you and your children. He is your mini heaven on earth.
The Job of a High Priest is to mediate between God and man; The man being the head of the woman connects us to God. Although, we have our own relationship with God, which is paramount as a lady; your relationship with God is and should be the first and foremost relationship you have before talking of another.
We should pray for our future spouse, male or female. It is of great importance that you pray for the person you are courting or about to be married too.
Whether you know this person or not. Whether you have met the person or not. Praying for your future spouse is of great importance. I know most of us would ask why?
Keeping a journal and praying for your future spouse
Well, I started keeping a journal in 2017; writing the things and kind of person I wanted my future husband to be. I learnt from the Holy Spirit that I shouldn’t just write how and who I want him to be, I should also pray for him to become who God wants him to be.
That was when I started praying for him.
I believe in calling forth the things that be not as though they were.
Another thing is, we all have character flaws, and in as much as we want a perfect spouse, we have to pray and ask God to shape us to be perfect for each other so as to carry out God’s purpose on earth.
To see that our marriage fulfills purpose is important; every marriage on Earth is supposed to fulfill a purpose. How can one fulfill such purpose without praying for your spouse and praying for God to reveal the purpose to you as a lady? How do you know your part to play in that marriage without praying?
Don’t just marry for the title
You are not just getting married for the title ‘Mrs’.
Marriage is work, you have a part to play in the Man’s life, and prayer is the only way to know what you should do, same is applicable to the young man. Your call as a husband goes beyond providing for the house and the family.
It goes beyond getting your wife pregnant. Prayer is the only way to get to know the full purpose and plans of God for your life, your wife, kids and marriage.
Another reason I pray and advise young ladies and gentle men to pray for their future spouses is this – Ancestry. Whether we like it or not, whether we believe it or not, there are ancestral powers that are trying to stop one from fulfilling purpose.
Imagine as a lady or a young man you successfully fight your ancestral powers and then marry a young lady or man who jokes with theirs.
What if the ancestral covenant in her family includes her husband dying or intense poverty? Everything just falls apart after a few years of marriage! It is not just tradition but warfare. You start battling again and trying to convince her that it can be broken and then unluckily for you, you die.
We need to settle down, find out the patterns and curses in our bloodline and battle them out. There are curses and ancestral powers following almost every lineage, except you fell from heaven and you have no earthly father or mother.
Praying for your future spouse would save you from future disaster!
Pray for your future spouse, the right time is now. A few minutes a day can break a number of chains. Cultivate the habit of praying for the life you want to live and the kind of family you want to journey with. You’d be saving society a big problem, because when the family is okay, the society is okay, the family is the key to the society’s well being.
Another reason you should pray for your future spouse is this:
The devil is attacking the family strongly, he knows that if he gets the family, he has gotten the society. Don’t just pray for your spouse, pray for your kids too. Start now and shield them from the plans of the enemy; because surely he has a plan and it is to attack Christian homes. We must pray, prayer is the key. We shouldn’t stop praying, we mustn’t stop praying, we can not stop praying!
Most problems that arise in marriage are problems that could have been dealt with through prayers.
The movie Fire Proof and War Room are practical examples of a family that started without prayer, but by the grace of God prayer restored their homes! If you are in a relationship and you haven’t been praying for your future spouse, start now. It’s better late than never! As a married woman cultivate the habit of praying for your husband and children.
Learn to maximize the night time. Learn to go on your knees, lay your hands on your husband and kids and legislate over their lives.
Areas to focus on while praying for your future spouse
- His Health
- His Mind
- His relationship with God
- His relationship with people
- And his ancestry
There is nothing We ask of God that He won’t do. When we pray for the man or the woman, they become like what we’ve asked God for.
Pray for your future spouse!
