The Power of Prayer: Our Children's Spouses



When I read through The Power of a Praying Parent by Stormie Omartian, I remember when I came across the part where she explains that we should pray for the spouse of our sons and daughters even before they are married.

I chuckled because I had been praying for my son's future wife since he was three!

I remember well standing over him as he slept and lifting up his future wife in prayer.

Why?

Because I come from divorced parents and so does my husband. We both know how to ruin a marriage, but neither one of us knew how to build a solid marriage. So, I wanted to start praying for my son as early as I could in order to ask the Lord to bless his marriage if that's what He has in store for our son.



The In-Laws


I don't know if marriage is in my son's future, but I wanted to submit to the Lord and
 pray for every part of my son's life. So, when he was little, I began to lift up his future wife and her family in my prayers:

I pray for her parents. I pray that her father is the spiritual leader of the home and that he shows his family how much he loves their mother daily.

I pray that her mother is a godly woman who teachers her children how to pray and trust in the Lord. I pray that she is teaching her daughter what it looks like to submit to her husband and to Christ.

I pray that her parents are teaching her God's Word and how to treasure it in her heart that she might not sin against God.

I pray that the Lord is speaking to her heart about her purpose in this life. I pray that He is using her talents and gifts for His glory at church and in everyday life.

I pray that she spends time alone with the Lord daily and is filled with the Holy Spirit.

I pray that her parents are teaching her financial responsibility and common sense when it comes to money and budgeting.

I pray that she loves learning and has a teachable spirit and longs to love the Lord with her mind as well as her heart.

I pray for her purity and that the Lord will spare her from any mistakes that might cause her pain and regret.

I pray that if there are any strongholds in her life or family, that the Lord will break down any strongholds and family inheritance of bondage or sin and keep her from carrying on any of these struggles or burdens.

But most of all, I pray that she and my son will have a long life together filled with godly offspring, joy, happiness, and God's strength to endure the hard times that will come. I pray for them to be the best of friends and enjoy years of laughter together. May they be found holding hands together in their Golden years as they were in their youth.






The Power of Prayer


All the things I pray for my son's future wife, I pray for my son as well.  I have seen the Lord answer my prayers for my son over and over.

God is faithful. I have seen the power of prayer.

I urge you to lift up your child's future spouse today. Even if your son or daughter is in the crib or in the womb, bathe them in prayer!

Marriage is hard enough with prayer, I cannot imagine it without prayer!

Your son and/or daughter will appreciate knowing that you were praying for their spouse for many years even before they met. I even wrote a letter to my son's wife to give to her on her wedding day. I wrote it many years ago.

It is never too early to begin praying for your children's future needs. In doing so, you are showing the Lord how willing you are to submit the future to His capable hands.

Release your children to the Lord today.

Blessings!
Ruth

  1. Hi Ruth:

    Loved your post. I have been praying for good spouses for my children, if they are to marry. So far so good. We have a lovely son-in-law now. Although I never thought to pray for the parents of my future in-laws. I will now.

    Thanks!

  8. Without DR DAHIRU a lot of people would have been dead through heart break. My case is not different from heart break, I am married woman with 3 kids and there was a time when i was having problem with my husband because he was having an affair outside our marriage and this was making me feel bad. So i tried finding solution to my problem by reading a lot of relationship tips on the internet and that was how i came in contact with DR DAHIRU contact details and through the help of DR DAHIRU at arewaspecialistttemple@gmail.com my husband left the girl he was having affair with and he came back to me and our kids. After a job well done by DR DAHIRU i felt that it will be unfair if i keep this secret to myself and that is why i am going to drop the contact details of DR DAHIRU right now,or you can also reach him via this email: arewaspecialisttemple@outlook.com

  12. An amazing testimony of a powerful and genuine spell caster who brought my husband back to me,. i live in England, and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with three kids. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited. { adagbaspiritualtemple@yahoo.com }. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past seven {8}months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than as it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same and you can also reach Dr Adagba through his mobile number +2348115200304,if you are in any condition like this or you have any problem contact Dr Adagba ,{ adagbaspiritualtemple@yahoo.com }, Thanks for reading .

  13. These comments you see on the internet about DR ONOFE are not just comments, they are truthful words of experience written by those who have been there and found help in reuniting with the ones they hold dear to their heart and other marital and financial problems. I can tell you this because I also asked him for help to cast a love spell to fix my relationship with the only man I have ever loved. we got married but couldn't have a baby and then I discovered my womb was damaged. I had to try some spell casters but to no avail until I contacted DR ONOFE. HE restored my womb and just like that i got pregnant,i have given birth now and our baby is growing. Thank God for our lives and also to DR ONOFE who God has used to blessed us. I know that not everybody will believe this moreover its just something on the internet but my heart knows every of this word that formed this entire comment is true. his contact is: onofetemple@yahoo.com or onofetemple@gmail.com website:http://onofetemple.wix.com/http
