Praying For Your Future Husband, by Robin Jones Gunn and Tricia Goyer, has honestly been the best book about preparing for marriage that I have ever read! Many relationship books give you principles and share some stories, but this book had one main point - every person should be praying for their future spouse! Robin Jones Gunn and Tricia Goyer spend 13 chapters sharing 13 different areas that women should be praying over for their future husband, such as praying for patience, praying that he will be a God lover, praying for contentment, praying for understanding, and praying for trust. These chapters are filled with specifics ways to pray for each of the areas, then Gunn and Goyer share their own personal stories along with stories from Gunn’s own daughter, and other women who spent time praying for their husband.
This book is not just a book about waiting to have sex, or even waiting to have your first kiss on your wedding day. It is about preparing yourself now for marriage, at whatever age you are, by praying for your husband regularly and specifically. I recommend this book to any teenage girl, any single woman, and even to married women. Women of all ages and relationship status can learn from this book. They will be encouraged to not only pray for their future (or current) husband, but also to strengthen their own relationship with God.
