And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; Luke 18:1
Welcome to Heart2Heart devotional. The next step to take in finding a godly life partner is to bathe the Process in Prayer. Read in Genesis 24:12–14 of how Abraham’s servant spent time to talk to God before finding a wife for Isaac.
When the chief servant reached the well, he began to pray. Again, this is one of the earliest recorded prayers in the Bible. The servant prayed for God to show kindness to Abraham and that he would essentially make it very clear whom the woman was.
This is not the only prayer in this chapter. Right after God confirmed that Rebekah was the one, he bowed down and worshiped God (v. 26). Then after the parents confirmed that they would give Rebekah to Isaac as a bride, he bowed down and worshiped again (v. 52).
When Rebekah was about to leave her parents’ house, her family prayed a blessing over her that she would increase to thousands upon thousands (v. 60)—resembling God’s blessing on Abraham. This entire process was bathed with prayer.
Similarly, since a godly spouse is a gift of the Lord, you must continually bathe the process in prayer. If you are going to find a godly life partner, the process must be bathed in prayer. You must spend time to speak to God about it. Don’t make this choice on your own and do not be in a hurry to make this choice.
Don’t just pray, fast. Don’t just fast, raise godly marital altars that will speak for you in this area. Too many marriages are crashing daily because many singles never take the time to wait on God in prayer before rushing off to say “I do.” May your “I do” not be a decision you will regret for life in Jesus name. Shalom!
