[25]

Incase you have not gathered yet, I cannot wait to begin life with my best friend. While planning for our wedding it is easy to get caught up in the flowers, the photos and every little detail possible. But one thing I am beyond excited for is actually playing the part and being Caleb’s wife. I have so much to learn and so much growing to do and I can’t wait to do it all by his side.

When I was a little girl my mother told me about how she used to always pray for her future husband growing up- so naturally, I did the same thing. These prayers for him were always generic prayers (i.e. help draw him to You, assist him through struggles, bless him, etc.). But now that I have met my future husband I am able to pray much more intentionally. In preparation for our big day and life together I found this list of ways to pray for him. While going through these I realized that a lot of them can apply to both of us.

I should probably write a disclaimer that although I am praying for these things for Caleb daily, most of these things are not struggles for him, but I pray them to make sure they do not become a problem, and for encouragement in the many things he is already doing well. It’s when we think we cannot stumble that we are most vulnerable; I don’t want to make that mistake.
