Cory was just a small toddler when I started praying for his future spouse. It wasn’t something I prayed for every day … or even every week. But I prayed when God stirred my heart. I prayed when I struggled in my own marriage. I prayed when my marriage grew stronger and full of joy. And I honestly believe my prayers made a difference. Prayer always does.
I adore my daughter-in-law, Katie. She and Cory have been married more than 4 years and have two beautiful babies. She’s thoughtful, caring, fun and godly. Most of all she adores my son. (What more can a mother desire?)
“O my God, incline Your ear and hear. Open Your eyes … for we do not present our supplications before You for our righteousness, but for Your great mercies” (Dan. 9:18).
So what things do you pray for? These are things we encourage young women to pray for in our book Praying for Your Future Husband … and you can pray these very things for your child’s future spouse!
