Praying for My Child's Mate
Sometimes my husband shares with my boys about the discouragement he faced in college. He couldn't find a girl that met his criteria and he began to pray daily for the Lord to send him a godly mate. The Lord "just happened" to place my husband and I in the same Psychology our Senior year at Oklahoma State. Yay! He reminds the boys to not settle and to pray often for a godly mate.
Let's keep persisting in prayer for our children's mates. It's their biggest life decision and it's never too early to start praying.
Prayer: God, please go before my chid and handpick his/her mate. Give my child discernment in dating and choosing a mate. May my child be drawn to a godly mate that has strong character. May he/she not overlook any red flags. Please let my child have one mate for life. Amen. Hugs, Steph.
