    Wow. I was lying in bed at 5:30am still in a drunken sleep and this segment woke me right up. Immediately got goosebumps over the testimonies and the power of prayer.

    I must admit that I don’t pray for my or a spouse anymore. I’ve come to the resolve that I just may be single because I do it so well and I go back and forth on if marriage is what I really want. At 38 life is kinda comfy by myself and as my little one gets older I think more about the day in which I won’t have to accountable to someone else. Sounds a little selfish I know. Sometimes I wonder if I would have these feelings if I weren’t a single mom. My BFF says I wouldn’t feel like that with that right man. I’m sure she’s right but she not married either and doesn’t have kids so she is not speaking from experience. Like I said being single is what I do best and I’m enjoying it. The key is not waiting to live when you have man/woman. Live now because that spouse is not promised to you and people die young everyday.

    I pray for Sienna’s husband all the time! I started praying for hers when she was 3. In fact I pray for hers more than I ever prayed for mine. Typically parent desire…I want her to have and be better than me. She already knows she wants to be married and a mom. She is so patient. More than myself. I would love to see her dreams come true. She’s already sold out for Jesus, way earlier than I ever was. She was also telling me the difference between these 2 little boys at school. She pointed out one shares with her all of time. She calls him her “brother”. I’m like “Yes Lord” she’s got it. Where’s other little girls are trying to find crushes she has found a brother. Makes me tear up. I didn’t get that concept until I was in my 30s

      Hey sis! I am so happy that you enjoyed the discussion with Tricia.

      I will be the first to admit that I never considered praying for my future wife, but it is something I plan to do.

      I totally respect your choice. It’s a blessing to be as content as you are. Trust and believe that is something else that Sienna will notice and learn from you.

      It’s great that you are praying for Sienna’s husband. I’m curious, what led you to start praying for him when she was 3?

      Sienna is so smart. She’s going to get things right in life and teach other young women how to as well. With God leading her she cannot go wrong.

      Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and takeaways sis!

        Thank you Jay. Yes Sienna is very smart and will make great choices in life.

        I started praying for her husband back then because I want her to have the best man possible. Not that my life has been a nightmare but I want her to have better than what I have. God knows my sweet girl. She has big heart, gives of herself, but likes to be catered to at times. She is an amazing person and she is going to need an amazing man and only God can give her that.

          Oh yeah! I truly believe that too.

          That’s wonderful. Keep praying sis!

    How ironic is that the day before this podcast came out, I was fed up with relationship life with men and I decided to write a letter entitled Dear Future Husband. Something from the Holy Spirit came across me to say I need to begin praying for my husband where ever he may be in life right now. I told myself as I am learning to embrace my singleness and live in purpose; I should be praying for my future spouse so that he too can learn to love God and have God in his life as I am doing right now.

    So hearing this podcast confirmed that I need to continue to pray for my spouse. Those testimonies kept me hopeful that the right one will come in God’s timing but in the meantime all I can do is pray for them. It is also good to hear that a book was created to help women in the process and I can’t wait to read it! Thank you Jay and Tricia for your wonderful insight on not just praying for physical qualities but also spiritual qualities when finding a mate.
