Praying for Your Child's Future Spouse

By Rachel Paxton

The past couple of years I have been contemplating the power of

prayer. God seeks for us to be close to Him, and we primarily

communicate with Him through our prayers.

When we pray, God wants us to be specific in our prayers. If we

follow Him, he wishes to give us the desires of our hearts. What

does your heart desire? One of the things I very much desire for

my family is for my children to grow up and marry men and women

who love and seek to follow after God with all their hearts.

Do you know that some mothers pray for their children's future

spouses from the time they are born? Why would you want to do

that? Think about it. Out there, somewhere, is the future wife

or husband of your son or daughter. God knows who your child

will marry. Will your prayers really affect who your child will


Of course your child will ultimately decide who he or she will

marry. What is important is that your children understand what

an important decision it is to choose a life partner, so that

they will not make this decision lightly. Tell your children you

are praying for them. Pray with your children so that they know

what it is that you wish for their lives. When your children are

old enough to date, encourage them to pray about the people they

spend time with. My teenage daughter and I also talk about what

her future husband might be like, and we talk about good and

not-so-good qualities in a future spouse. There are certain

qualities about people she knows she could never live with, like

men who have short tempers or are not good managers of their

money. She knows she wants to marry someone who loves God, and

who wants to raise a family as much as she does.

We all want what is best for our children, and the person they

choose to be their spouse is perhaps the most important choice

they will ever make. That decision should be theirs, but if you

pray for them God will hear your prayers and will help to prepare

your child's heart and the heart of their future wife or husband

for the marriage that God has intended for them.
