Praying for Mr. Right?

God, I thank you for all of your blessings. You take care of me daily and for that I am forever grateful. God please continue to provide and bless me. Only you know my heart’s greatest desires. I know that I am a good woman and I deserve a good man. God please bring a wonderful man into my life. A man with everything together and well established; a man who can provide for me and give me financial security. God I know that through you all things are possible, and I come to you with an open heart in your son Jesus name AMEN.

How many times have you prayed for God to bless you with your idea of a dream man? How many times have you poured your heart out to him asking him to fill a void in your life with a person that you feel will make everything better? So often we women go to God asking him to exercise his power and bless us with the love of our life, but so often those prayers seem to go unanswered. You may fall in love with a guy and get your heartbroken, or someone may approach you and be the complete opposite of any man you could ever see yourself happy with. At some point you have to stop for a moment and analyze the situation.

It is important to remember that analyzing should start with you. Where are you in life? Are you actively working towards your purpose? Do you know what your purpose is? What are you actually doing other than praying for “Mr. Right”? Now first of all, don’t get me wrong, there is nothing at all wrong with expressing to God the desires of your heart, but it is also important that as a woman you are working towards positioning yourself to be the answer to someone else’s prayers. I mean you are praying for certain great qualities in “him” right? So somewhere there is a guy praying for some great qualities in his “her”. This is something you must keep in mind. Work towards being just as great of a woman as you want your man to be.

Now let’s be real, God works in his own timing. So no matter what we say or do he knows when the timing is right. Meanwhile, life goes on. You have to learn to love and take care of yourself. The last things you want to do is rush what’s meant to be. There are more women having babies and becoming single mothers than getting married and enjoying a loving family. Whether you fall in that category or not, the fact still remains that you have to take care of you and in some cases you and yours. Stop praying for a wealthy put together man and work on putting your pieces together. Work on living up to your potential. Those things provided without being earned from effort and learned through experience so often go unappreciated, and we all know a relationship without genuine appreciation for one another is doomed to failure. Give him something to appreciate. Embrace and appreciate your journey.
