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
"This book is a must-read for every girl who has even wondered what her future husband will be like. Every page left me wishing Id had this book when I was still singleor during all the years I mentored boy-crazy teenage girls. Whether you are looking for inspiration, encouragement, or even proof that prayer works, this book is for you. The perfect blend of real-life stories and a how-to manual, Praying for Your Future Husband will be an ideal companion from now until the altar."
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."
Sandra Byrd, best-selling author of the London Confidential series and other books for teens and tweens

The perfect blending of Robins and Tricias unique and personal journeys to find their mates, it is filled with wisdom and sound advice from Scripture to spur on your prayer life as you follow your own path. This is a must-read for every young woman who desires a road map on the journey of discovering Gods heart!"
Pam Stenzel, MA, author of Nobody Told Me and Sex Has a Price Tag and director of Enlighten Communications

This book is where you begin. Robin and Tricia have taken all the pieces of the "finding true love" puzzle and have assembled a clear picture and a path that make sense and tell the truth about God and His plans for you.

Wman4JCmiami, flAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5This Book is SUCH a Blessing!!August 20, 2014Wman4JCmiami, flAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5this book should get at least 7 stars!
**I've only read the first 50 pages and I'm so inlove with this book and all it offers!! This is worth so much more than FIVE stars and EVERY woman should read it. Such ENCOURAGEMENT, such wonderful prayers, such wisdom and heart in these pages. The prayers, testimonies, scriptures and quotes from this book will never expire and are utterly precious.**
Wow, what a wonderful book! It's easy to understand, filled with great testimonies, scriptures, prayers and even discussion questions. I will treasure this book always and continue going through the prayers/scriptures. Love what these authors put together in this book and so blessed by what they shared.
Holly SmithCharleston, SC5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Advice For Single Women!January 6, 2012Holly SmithCharleston, SCQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Praying for Your Future Husband isn't a book about "formulas" or secret words that will quicken God to bringing your husband to you, but rather, it's about using prayer to make a difference in the life of the man that a young woman will one day marry.
Robin Jones Gunn and Tricia Goyer draw from their own dating and engagement experiences as they share what women should pray for in their future husbands. I believe their unique experiences make this book a treasure for both types of women who are likely to read this book--those who have remained sexually pure for their spouse, and the ones who may have made mistakes.
I love how Tricia Goyer is proof that God doesn't give "second-rate" guys to women who may have formed physical or emotional attachments to men before marriage. The idea of "second-rate" consequences seems to be the theological assessment presented inside the church these days, and to learn that it's far from true is not only refreshing, but a Biblical truth grounded inside the grace of Jesus Christ that shows just how much He loves us.
As a single woman, I can't begin to tell you how helpful I found this book. Inside each chapter, Robin Jones Gunn and Tricia Goyer paint a picture of what young women should pray for their husbands. The idea behind this book is not to pray for God to bring your husband to you, but rather, to bring your husband to you as the man God wants him to be. These authors are quick to point out that God is going to bring him on His timetable.
Until several years ago, I used to pray for my husband quite a bit. Between heartbreak and growing weary of waiting for him to show up, I relinquished the practice. Not intentionally, though. It just fell to the wayside. When you add to the fact that I'm twenty-six, you can almost see how I'm a bit weary.
The chapters on waiting and patience were the most encouraging portions in this book for me. Not only were these chapters encouraging, but somehow, I was able to look back to my past prayers for my husband and know that God has never intended those prayers to be futile.
I love how this book is filled with encouraging and appropriate Scriptures, bullet-point ideas to pray for your future husband, prayers, spaces to write down any thoughts you might have, and discussion questions. Talk about packing a book full of resources!
You'll also find a portion in the back of the book that contains fifty-two (one for each week) prayer ideas and scriptures.
What I love most about this book is that the authors focus on the heartbeat of those prayers--the woman praying them and her relationship with her Creator. They show how God will transform the heart of the one praying to further develop a deep intimacy with God that is essential during those years of dating, that short period of engagement, and the lifetime of marriage.
After reading this book, I feel so encouraged to begin praying for my husband again. I can't wait to one day learn how God worked those prayers in his life!
I definitely recommend Praying for Your Future Husband to every single woman out there.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers in exchange for an honest review.

I am so glad I read this book as it explored different areas girls can pray for their future husbands- some that I'd never thought of before! Every young woman should read this book.

I enjoyed reading it and it had great insight as to what to pray for your future husband. They suggest writing letters to your future husband and that I don't exaclty get. Are we doing that just for ourselves or for him? Overall I would say this is a good book to help you know how to pray for your future husband and that prayer does change things.

I have read a few books on dating and being single but this book is the best one I have read. It is laid out very well with so much truth and content. I wish I had this book when I was younger.
