When I was at Nigerian Law School in the year 2014, I had a roommate whose call to my sister on her 17th birthday included prayers for her future husband. I stood listening to the conversation and at the end of the call I jokingly remarked that “my sister is just 17!”
Her reply was classic; she said “we are supposed to start praying for our marriage and husbands right from
childhood, this is even late” (paraphrased).
Today, 3 years later, I totally agree with her.
You know, today’s Christian woman has a lot of gap to fill when it comes to prayers for her man/marriage.
Somehow, we have tilted more into worries that can do nothing instead of tilting to prayers that can do
“And who of you by worrying and being anxious can
add one unit of measure (cubit) to his stature or to the
span of his life?”
-Matthew 6:27, AMP
This book is meant to teach you how you can do more with the one weapon that can do everything – prayer.
“…The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power].”
-James 5:16b, AMP
You know, sometimes Christians feel like prayers accomplish nothing. We often feel this, even about people we know. Now, to add to that, this book is about
to take it a notch higher- to praying for someone whose name we do not even know.
But know this:
How we feel does not matter; as Christians, the Word is our only truth.
Do not think that your prayers accomplish nothing; in the James 5:16 passage above, we are
assured that every heartfelt prayer from a believer accomplishes much in the hand of God.
“It is dynamic and can have tremendous power.”
And that’s exactly what this book aims to teach you to do – to pray earnest, heartfelt and constant Spirit-led prayers for the one whose name you don’t
know, staying secure in the knowledge that every word of prayer is being worked on to accomplish its intended
result by God.
“Then another angel with a gold incense burner came
and stood at the altar. And a great amount of incense
was given to him to mix with the prayers of God’s people as an offering on the gold altar before the throne.
The smoke of the incense, mixed with the prayers of God’s holy people, ascended up to God from the altar where the angel had poured them out.”
Know that every one of the prayers of God’s people are sweet-smelling incense before Him, with which He disposes angels to go and do His bidding.
Please, pray for your future husband; he needs it.
Someday soon when you share your prayer journal with him as a gift, you will know just how much your prayers for his life were really needed at the very moment you prayed them.
