Ironically, these unknown figures play a significant role in the future of my family and I will one day entrust them with pieces of my heart.
I pray for my son-in-laws as if they were mine because one day they will be.
A Prayer for the Man Who Will Marry My Daughter
Dear God, there is a young man somewhere that I probably have never met. He is playing on a playground, sitting at a dining room table, or throwing rocks into a pond.
To be honest I have no idea what he is doing, what his life (or his face for that matter) looks like, who his family is or what values are being instilled. But I am dedicated to lifting him up to You.
This young man will one day marry my daughter…
As tears roll down my cheeks, I cry out to you to bless, protect and direct his life.
I pray that you would surround him with Your love. Place people in his life that will lay a foundation of Your truth, Your love, and Your values.
Keep him safe. Keep him pure. Make him Yours.
Even now, I pray that you would prepare a love in him for his future wife and cause this love to drive his actions.
Make him sensitive to Your voice. Make him eager to seek You and to seek the plan You have for his life.
Teach him to lay down his life, for You. That he will one day lay it down for my daughter, and their children. Teach him to lead by following You.
Lord, I trust Your plan for their lives and I anticipate their union and the glory it will bring to Your Kingdom.

Tween girls have access to an unbelievable amount of media and information with just a simple click of the remote or mouse. Every outlet they turn to attempts to subtly influence their worldview…and what they believe about themselves directly affects how they live.
Wynter Pitts, founder of For Girls Like You magazine, gives girls a new devotional showing them a correct definition of themselves, opening their eyes to God’s truth and the difference it makes in their lives. Each daily devotion includes a prayer to help girls apply the lesson. ~ from the Publisher
