Have you ever thought about praying for your future husband?

Will it make a difference?

There's only one way to find out…

 

From when we were small girls, most of us dream of “The One,” our future husband. We think about what it would be like to be a bride. We wonder who that special guy is and when we'll find him. The great news is that what you do now can make a difference in your life and the life of your future husband!

 

Authors and good friends Robin Jones Gunn (Christy Miller series) and Tricia Goyer (author and former teen mom) believe God answers women's prayers for husbands—even husbands they may not meet for years. They invite young women to pray boldly for their future mate … while also asking God to prepare their own hearts.

 

In Praying for Your Future Husband, Robin and Tricia share their two vastly different experiences, including the things they did right and the mistakes they made on the path to meeting and marrying their husbands. Each chapter includes helpful Bible verses, prayers, and practical application, along with true stories of women who prayed for a husband and how God answered in remarkable ways.

 

God has a beautiful romance prepared for you. Prayer is the key to unlocking the love story … with your future husband and with God, the lover of your soul.

I selected this book with the hope that it would guide me as I continue my journey as a single mom and a single woman. Based on the publisher's synopsis, Praying for Your Future Husband would give me a clearer insight into what a Godly man really looks like and how I can best open my heart to him. However, only three chapters in I realized that this book is not written for grown women or women who have already gone through a marriage. This book is targeted for teenage girls and young women. In addition, I've been experiencing what some would term "a crisis of faith" though I prefer to call it a lull in the relationship. The authors assume that their audience is strong of faith and solidly in their relationship with God. As someone who is not currently in that place, this book felt preachy and somewhat out of touch with the ups and downs of grown women and their relationships with God and with men. Unfortunately, because of this, it felt more like required reading rather than something that would enhance my relationship with God or support me in developing a heart that is open to a new husband. For that reason I was unable to finish it and had to set it back on the shelf. I do plan to pick it back up one day and read it but this book seems directed at certain people with a certain mindset at a certain place in their lives...and right now I'm just not there.

*Disclaimer* I received a complimentary copy of Praying for Your Future Husband from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Company for the preceding review.

I’m not married. And I pray for my future husband. Thus my reasoning behind reviewing “Praying for Your Future Husband.”

I knew from the title, what I THOUGHT I was going to get, but I was completely taken by surprise once I started reading and by the time I was done, I was thoroughly blessed.

There are 13 chapters, each one detailing qualities we as young women should keep in mind as we pray for our future husbands. Robin and Tricia each made the chapters personal by adding their experiences. The book just doesn’t lay out how we should pray for our young men, but how we should pray for ourselves. This was huge for me as I know I need to grow so much more.
I often grow impatient in my waiting. thinking the moment will never come. But I have recently been giving so much back to God and letting HIM decide the right time. I reside in peace in that decision and this book helped solidify that decision.

Filled with scripture, stories to encourage us to “stick with it”, prayers and discussion guides that would work great for small or large groups, I believe every young woman needs to read this book. You won’t know until you get there, what your prayers did. Don’t wait until tomorrow, start today.

This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers for my copy to review.
