Will it make a difference?
There's only one way to find out…
From when we were small girls, most of us dream of "The One," our future husband. We think about what it would be like to be a bride. We wonder who that special guy is and when we'll find him. The great news is that what you do now can make a difference in your life and the life of your future husband!
Authors and good friends Robin Jones Gunn (Christy Miller series) and Tricia Goyer (author and former teen mom) believe God answers women's prayers for husbandseven husbands they may not meet for years. They invite young women to pray boldly for their future mate … while also asking God to prepare their own hearts.
In Praying for Your Future Husband, Robin and Tricia share their two vastly different experiences, including the things they did right and the mistakes they made on the path to meeting and marrying their husbands. Each chapter includes helpful Bible verses, prayers, and practical application, along with true stories of women who prayed for a husband and how God answered in remarkable ways.
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.
Tricia Goyer, the author of more than 25 books, has drawn from her experiences as a teen mother and leader of todays generation to be a voice of hope for women. Tricia has been married for more than twenty years and is the mother of four children.
The authors are sincere in that they share their own mistakes and faults. Each chapter has a strong thought-provoking title that indicates different disciplines to pray for a future husband to develop: strength, trust, faithfulness, and patience. The authors call readers to engage with them in making lists, following the reading with immediate prayer, and taking notes.
Each story, spread appropriately throughout the book, captures the reader's attention at once, drawing girls in to listen and learn. The most important point the authors stress is that a husband should be a God lover. Robin explains, "Real true, lasting love isnt rooted in emotions. True love comes from Gods heart. His love transforms us deep down. As the Relentless Lover, God never stops pursuing us because were His first love, and He wants us back." She supports her theory by quoting Isaiah 49:15-16 which says, "I will not forget you. See, I have written your name on my hand."
Praying for Your Future Husband is a book hoping to prepare the female heart for a lifetime commitment. It doing so, the authors encourage prayer, worship, planning, and self-development. With its real life examples and personal study questions, such a book will minister greatly to girls from ages 14 and older. Each time I finished reading a section, I wanted to go straight to the Lord in prayer. Julia Camara, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Shannon Primicerio, author of The Divine Dance, God Called a Girl, and the TrueLife Bible Studies series
"When I was twelve years old, my husband began praying for me. I did not know that, of course, because I did not yet know him or God. But later, looking back, I saw how those prayers had miraculously affected my life. Gunn and Goyer are practical, vulnerable, inspirational, and encouraging. I can think of few better gifts for a young lady to offer her future husband than the gift of her prayers, and this book shows how to do it."
