Have you ever thought about praying for your future husband? Will it make a difference? There’s only one way to find out.

Most of us dream about our future husbands from the time we’re small. We wonder who he’ll be, what he’ll be like, and how fun it’ll be to be the bride. We wonder when and where we’ll meet him. But not too often to we think to pray for him.

Authors Robin Jones Gunn and Tricia Goyer both share their personal stories—the right decisions and the oh, so very wrong ones that they’ve made to show us how to pray for our future husbands. Topics such as:
Praying for his heart, praying for trust, praying for understanding, praying for intimacy are just some of the things mentioned to pray for.

Included in each section are Bible verses, prayers and practical applications along with true stories from not only Robin and Tricia, but also from other women who prayed for a husband and showing how God answered in a remarkable way.

God has a wonderful romance prepared for you—and prayer is the key to unlocking that love story—both with your husband, and with God.

This book is absolutely wonderful, heart-stirring, and thought-provoking. I’m giving my copy to my fifteen year old daughter to read and work through. I remember a Sunday school teacher when I was a young girl telling her story about praying for her husband during the midst of World War II and how she didn’t even know who she was then. That story always stayed with me and I started praying for my future husband then. But I never thought of all these different ways to pray for him. This is an excellent resource and a must-have for any mom of teenage (or young adult) girls. $13.99. 207 pages.
