My second daughter just celebrated her twelfth birthday. As her and I drove around town running some errands, we had a beautiful heart to heart. We have had wedding and marriage on the brain lately as my baby sister was very recently married. So my daughter and I were discussing her future wedding and husband. At first she was being very silly. Saying silly things she wanted in her husband and silly things she wanted out of life. But then our talk became serious.
We discussed that even though she is only twelve years old, she needs to be praying for her husband now. This is something I have done for all of my children for years. But it is time that she does it as well.
Our girls need to begin now pray for their future husband. If she starts this practice now, she will be creating a beautiful habit of praying for him for life.
…his walk with God
…relationship with his family
…schooling and career choice
I tell my kids all of the time that every choice we make now effects our future life. If she is praying for him now to walk with God, have a solid relationship with his family, and so on, it will have a positive effect her marriage.
Do you pray for your children’s future mate? Do you teach your children to pray for their future mate?
