Review # 68: Praying for Your Future Husband- Preparing Your Heart for His by Robin Jones Gunn and Tricia Goyer

"God has a beautiful romance prepared for you. Prayer is the key to unlocking the love story … with your future husband and with God, the lover of your soul."
      Praying for Your Future Husband- Preparing Your Heart for His is a book for Christian females, (teens and older), containing stories about finding "The One", and the struggles we sometimes face along the way. Besides stories, there are patches of scripture throughout, and many opportunities to write down thoughts and reflections; there are also discussion questions and exercises included.
     Honestly, I had never pondered about praying for my future significant other. First thoughts: How does that work? and, Would it really make a difference? Well, after reading through 13 chapters and 207 pages of stories and scripture-filled prayer ideas, I have to say, I actually get it. The way this book is set up, it does an amazing job answering the why's and how's. Subjects include praying for: his heart, a God lover, patience, understanding, trust, loyalty and faithfulness, strength, protection, intimacy, "the List", contentment, and commitment. I also really liked how they included a section of scriptures to be used in prayer, and a section in each chapter for reflection and feelings on specific topics of discussion. The authors, Robin Jones Gunn and Tricia Goyer write great books, so I had a feeling that this collaboration would also produce a noteworthy book, even if I didn't originally get the why's, and it is just that. Full of wisdom, hope, inspiration, and encouragement, Praying for Your Future Husband is a must-read for anyone who has ever thought about having a husband or being a wife. I believe that it would also benefit men to read this book, or maybe a couple authors should write a more male-based "Praying for Your Future Wife..." book. Thanks for renewing my outlook on the future, your experiences have, and will continue to influence your readers.

Rating: On the Run (4.5/5)

*** I received this book from WaterBrook Multnomah (Blogging For Books) in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
