My husband and I have always been firm believers in the necessity of prayer. In fact, we both desired to get married young and we both prayed for our future spouse long before we ever met.
God heard our prayers and He answered!
God told my young heart,
I can't trust you with someone else's heart until you trust me with yours!"
So, I spent time learning how to trust God, especially with my desire to get married. I faithfully prayed for my future husband.
My husband went through a very similar experience of chasing after God more than chasing after his desire for marriage. He prayed for his future wife and future marriage. Then when he was confident that God brought me into his life for this purpose, he proposed marriage by sharing with me how I was his answer to prayer! It was touching and an incredible testimony of God's presence in our lives. Right after the proposal, he asked for my hand so we could pray together as fiancés!
Prayer became one of the most significant tools in helping our marriage when hard times hit. We believe it was the foundation of prayer that we established early on in our relationship that helped our marriage survive.
Prayer is how we communicate to our Heavenly Father, the One who designed marriage! Prayer is how we let God know what we are going through and what we desire. Prayer is essential for the life of every Christian.
