Praying For Your Future Spouse
Day 6: Their Work
I thank you and praise you for my future spouse. I pray that (he/she) would be a person of great integrity, always persevering in their work and being faithful to what you have called them to do. I pray that the work of (his/her) would be blessed. Let there be no spirit of fear in my future spouse that could cause (him/her) to be lazy in (his/her) work or push (him/her) to overwork. I pray that my future spouse would come to understand that “lazy hands make for poverty but diligent hands bring wealth” (Proverbs 10:4). On the other hand, I pray that (he/she) would not lust after wealth and build (his/her) riches on earth only but that (he/she) would first be concerned with your kingdom. I thank you Lord that my future spouse can find fulfillment in (his/her) work because (he/she) is being led by you and you order (his/her) steps. At the same time, I pray that my future spouse would be certain that (his/her) ultimate fulfillment in life can only come from you. I declare, in the name of Jesus, that my future spouse is walking in alignment with your will and your plans for (his/her) life in this area of life. And if (he/she) has drifted from your will or plans, I pray that you would shine your light of wisdom and guide (him/her) to do the work you have called them to do. Where there is confusion about my future spouse’s career, I pray that you would bring clarity. May everything (he/she) find to do, be for your honor and glory and may it positively impact people around (him/her) and sow seeds for the kingdom. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Becoming The One
Now that you have prayed for your future spouse’s work, I want you to consider your own career path. Journal your answers and ask God to reveal the truth to you.
- Which career path are you on right now? Is it one that brings you happiness?
- Does your career choice improve the lives of others?
- Would you say you do your job with passion and excitement most of the time or are you mostly frustrated with your job?
- Is it just a job to you? Or are you operating in God’s calling for your life?
Now meditate on the next scriptures and pray that God would give you wisdom concerning your path.
