My Daughter’s Husband

Okay, so this is an odd title for a woman whose only daughter is just 8 years old – LOL!

I pray for a lot of things each day and praying for Chloe’s future husband is one of them. It was just brought to my mind as I read an article that was written by a very grounded 13 year old young man.

It just really got me to thinking about how Chloe’s future husband (Lord’s will) is out there somewhere… right now. I am praying that his parents have been training him and laying out a firm foundation that is on the Rock.

I am praying that he is just as wonderful as my husband! I want Chloe to marry a man that will love the Lord first and her second. He will be her protector and provider. He will lead his family with love and integrity. He will be a strong man who will not waver in trust of the Lord.

Thinking about my daughter’s future this way makes me feel excited and sad at the same time! I may only have 10 years left with her, but perhaps it will be longer…. I have a lot to accomplish in that time – and I am sure that there is another mother out there right now, praying for my daughter – even though she not know her – but my daughter will one day be the wife of her son! I am sure that she is praying that Chloe will love God first and her husband second. That she will be her husband’s helper and that her husband can trust in her. That she will be a godly wife and a godly mother.

I pray that the Lord uses me to help her become that woman and that wife and mother. I pray that I can be an example to her (I’ve got a lot of work to do!!!). I pray that I can instill in her a love for the Lord, a love for family, a love for the hurting and lost.

  1. I pray the same things over my children. My hubby says I am silly. Have you read the book “Power of a Praying Parent” it touches that subject a bit. Have a blessed one.

  2. Hi Amber, I have that book but I have not read it yet.

    I am sorry that your dh doesn’t quite understand but just keep praying for the future spouses of your children (one can never have too much prayer). Just think, when the time comes for your children to get married, you will already feel a closeness and bond to their fiancee because of the prayers that you have covered them with over the years. That will be so neat!

  3. When each of our children were born, we started praying for their spouses, or that the Lord would bless them in their singleness. I’m not as consitent as I’d like to be, but my MIL prayed for me since before I was born (my husband is 10 months older than me and she prayed beginning soon after he was born). That is a VERY special thing and when she first told me I was almost in tears.

    Check out “While They Were Sleeping”, a great book about praying for your children.

    Blessings,
