Scripture Reference:

  • But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God. 1 Corinthians 11:3
  • But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband. The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband. For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. 1 Corinthians 7:2-5

Prayer to Find a Godly Woman

I ask that you would give me divine revelation through mentors, dreams, visions, signs, and prophetic words about the different options. O’ Lord, guard my mind and heart from falling in love with outer appearances and behaviors without seeing the character that a woman possesses. I ask that you would keep my heart and help me to not awaken love at the wrong time with the wrong woman. I rejoice because I believe you will help me to avoid unintentionally leading a woman on OR spending time within a relationship that you never ordained. Abba, I am excited to met a woman that is on the same purification and righteous journey as my self. I ask that she would submit to your leadership and allow you to strip her of pride, trauma, idolatry, and any fleshly behavior that would cause her to look to world for revelation rather than you. I am confident that my wife will posses joy, patience, kindness, repentance, and forgiveness. Amen.

I ask that you would continue to lead her in repentance and forgiveness, so that her heart would be soft to the spirit and people around her. O’ Lord, I am excited that you are preparing her to love and desire a man like me. I submit myself to you Lord and ask that I would become just as beautiful inside and we would both be in awe of the work you’ve done in our lives and hearts. Amen.

Scripture Reference:

  • Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives, when they see your respectful and pure conduct. Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands, 1 Peter 3:1-6
  • Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Colossians 3:18
