  • Thank you for sharing. As I was filling out the print out for each of my children, I felt led to also print out one for their future spouse as well. Granted each are no where near the marrying age, I have always prayed the Lord would send them a Christian spouse though. Now I can also have a focus to pray specific for them also whomever they may be. May God bless. Melanie Brandon

    • Hi Melanie – What a wonderful prayer. I don’t think it is ever too early to pray for our kid’s future spouses. I know my mom started when I was very young and God most certainly honored her prayers. Thank you for stopping by and encouraging us all to follow your lead.
