A Prayer for My Future Husband

by Anne Conner

Lord I know there is someone,
In this world for me
Keep him safe from harm,
And from temptation help him flee

Make him a leader,
Who can guide me through the years.
Give him a loving arm to hold me,
And to dry all my tears.

Mold him to be a father,
As you have been to me.
Always keep him by my side
A right arm forever he’ll be.

Cause his love for you to grow,
And a true doctrine let him know.
And in his life forever,
Let your light always show.

Place him in the ministry,
So more can hear God’s word
And when the trials come,
Help us praise you Lord.

Give him a compassion,
Toward those who are orphaned
And to such as these,
Our home will always be open.

Finally Lord I ask you,
Help him keep himself
Because a Christian man like this,
Is valued above great wealth.

Wow, that was really a pretty piece. I pray for the same thing, I have yet to find him, but he has to be out there somewhere, at least I hope. You did an exellent job! Take Care! Brooke~

wow, that was really great, and really sweet...very well thought out. i'm so glad that you ask for purity, compassion, and morality instead of good looks and all that...dont worry, as i've said before, there's a really great guy out there somewhere for you, and to marry someone like you, he's gonna be pretty darn amazing!!
