Dear Friends,

For the past few months, I have been praying for a new relationship. The man I have been dating is not a Christian. Having been married to a non-believer for 15 years, I know the struggle that I am up against. I cannot pray with him when I feel scared or sad. I cannot expect him to want to go to church with me. The relationship is not based on the foundation of faith.

Is it too early to think about marriage? Life is short and I would not be in this relationship if I did not think that it could lead someday to a lasting commitment. I love this man, and it hurts to think of a future without him. Everyday with him, I fall deeper in love.

I know there is power in the multitude of prayer, so I ask for your help. Please pray with me.

Dear God,

Thank you for this day. Thank you that I wake up in my own space, thinking about a man that cares about me. I pray that you would bless this relationship. If it is your will, he will believe as I do, but I do not want him to feel any pressure from me. It seems impossible that he would come to know you, but then I remember that with you, all things are possible. I pray that he is able to forgive and let go of the hurt from the past, so we can move forward into the future together.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
