I'm just wondering, do you believe in praying that you'll find the right husband/wife really works?

Certainly no evidence that it hinders... so it can't hurt right?

I think it is the wisdom to see the person that is right for you that is needed. Sometimes the person we think is "all wrong" is really "all right" but then I don't know.. I've always found that what I am looking for is right under my nose.

This quite possibly could be the one thread among hundreds on this forum that casts the dice as to whether or not June decides to abandon her atheism...

Remember, it's not the praying that works, it's God.
And yes of course, also read what he's written and it'll give you discernment to be able to find the right spouse.

Be ready to abandon your atheism

I have prayed for a good husband. I ended up with a faithful, handsome, sexy man. This coming June we will be married 46 years. He still tells me he loves me, and when he does that - in order to attract my attention - he might first say Woof! and then smiles. We still flirt often with each other

My daughter wanted badly to get married and was chasing after boys. I told her not to do that but pray to God and ask him to send her the right person for a husband. She did that, as she has told me so. She married the man who is just perfect for her. When they are at my house fixing Thankgiving dinner or any other dinner, they converse with each other in low voices. I have pointed out to others how they sound like two turtle doves cooing at each other. Most of the time they sit very close together and still walk together with arms around each other. I have never heard an angry or mean word exchanged between them and both still act as being very much in love They have been married now for six years.

Let me elaborate. It is not the praying that works. It is the slowing down and the waiting in quiet expectation that works.

When a person prays for something, they become open to opportunity. They look with eyes not fogged by lust or hormones. This combination puts them in a place where they can be pragmatic......asking "Is this the guy who God has sent" makes you look past the smile, the body, the pheromones. This opens the door to a true companion.

Ah, I'm a bit confused...you are saying that praying doesn't work...but when you pray, your eyes are open to truth

Um...did you mean to say the process of praying allows for one to see a good fish and not the actual prayer itself?

I apologize for the questioning...my comprehension is not up to par as I would like it to be..
