In part one of Our Story I shared how God asked me to stop praying for a husband but my husband. Some left a question over the weekend: What did you pray about when you stopped praying for a husband, but for your husband?
Each year I had a different prayer. I remember in 1996 it was that he would be getting his finances ready to support a wife and family (John graduated Chiropractic College this year).
Now I used to remember what each year was, but I can't remember specifics now, however some of my yearly prayers were:
That he'd be lonely for a wife.
That he'd have a year of blessings.
That he'd have a tough year spiritual.
Boy, I can't remember the other two or three I had. It was fun to compare notes with John when we knew we were getting married. I can see how God did do different things in his life in the years I prayed certain things!
I kept a journal to John and we took it on our honeymoon. It sure was fun to read it to him.
Praying for my husband helped my heart stay pure for him alone!
