A million stars up in the sky
one shines brighter I can’t deny
A love so precious, a love so true
a love that comes from me to you
The angels sing when you are near
within your arms I have nothing to fear
You always know just what to say 
just talking to you makes my day
I love you honey with all of my heart
together forever and never to part.
Father, when I say till death do us part
I want to mean it with all of my heart
Please help me to love you, more than I love him
That way I know I can love him more than anyone else
I want to learn to listen to his heart
I want to learn to cherish and adore him
I pray for strength to serve him and be patient with him
I want to submit to him as I submit to you everyday
Help me bring him to your presence and be the man you want him to be
When he falls teach me how to catch him
When he cries silently teach me to hold him
When he hurts me teach me to forgive him
Through all the twists and turns
The frowns, storms and darkness
Help me STAY“.
“I pray these things with all of my heart….Amen”

191 Thoughts on “My Prayer…..For Him*”

  • I have written many poems for the love of my life for 40 years, your poem is excellent!
    Are you both soon to get married maybe! My wife told me she asked God something very similar to your words if she would find her a good husband. I also prayed to God and asked him for a wife, and he brought us both together, and I am going to share a poem with you, that was written early in the month we married in June 1977. An Angel spoke to me and I wrote this poem:
    Three Joined Together
    An angel came to me today with a message
    Holding a perfect triangle in His hand
    He asked me if I knew why he carried it
    I laughed at him thinking such a crazy man
    He placed it down on a piece of paper
    Beginning to trace all of its shared lines
    As the image together became complete
    He then asked of me to open up my mind
    He explained how its adjoining three points
    All share equally the same space in between
    He went on to ask me this single question
    If I truly understood what it really means
    He went on to say how it truly displays
    In such a very special and wholesome way
    A wonderful side of pure spiritual wisdom
    Which many alive fail to embrace each day
    The top point of the triangle sit’s our God
    With His glory, grace, forgiveness and love
    But the two lines which went away from Him
    Are to the two creations He was most proud of
    The third line reflects Gods strong foundation
    A shelter when needing guidance the two can be
    But here in the triangle they would be connected
    Reflecting how the relationship will be for three
    If as a man you turn your head away from God
    You cannot hide from him anything you might do
    As you are connected to both God and your wife
    He will see and feel all you might plan to do
    It is the same for the wife as with her husband
    If she ever for some reason chooses to turn away
    God will see the paths which she also might take
    And nothing would be hidden from Him in any way
    The point of the message which he shared with me
    Was to help us understand where our hearts should stay
    He said look at the connecting lines in your life
    Sharing and depending will bless your lives each day
    For God will love and embrace you both all the time
    With His blossoming love in so many beautiful ways
    And His blessings will always nourish your lives daily
    When in this threefold embrace of love you both stay.
    Never mistreat each other a single day in your lives
    Treat and love the other as you would love yourself
    And when God looks daily upon your steps each day
    Your hearts will never in his eyes leave any doubt.
    (Written June 1, 1977, 23 days before my wife and
    I married.)

    God bless you my sister and keep writing, you are blessed with the gift of writing!

    • Thank you Wendell for commenting. The answer to your question is Yes. But this is amazing, thank you for sharing this with me and am pretty sure many others who visits my blog will get to see this and be inspired. I am inspired. This is what I am looking for and need now. There are so many good books on marriage and its survival but very few on personal revelations or encounter from God. I just want Jesus to be Lord of our home. I want him to teach me how to love him cos am sure if I do it on my own I will end up getting weary. The power of love God has given us is so strong, it can tear down walls and flatten mountains but one can only have access to this True love if Jesus is involved and in charge. Thank you for sharing this wonderful piece and thank you for your kind words. God bless you.

  • God is love, and it is easy to love and embrace your spirit my sister! Your Brother in Christ!.. The majority of my poems are written for the main two loves in my life, God, and my wife! (Because of his love in my life from birth, I have never hated anyone in my life.) Share your love through your words, they are a genuine blessing) God, Christ, the Holy Spirit are our genuine friends, and then there are new people who become that way also, when we recognize the same spirit in them which lives in us.. I had to share this with you also.
    A Genuine Friend
    There is a love which lives deep within
    A genuine one which will never go away
    No matter how one might try to release it
    In our hearts and minds we find it stays
    Whenever another touches our inner being
    While bringing their pleasant peace inside
    We find ourselves to become comfortable
    As we begin to embrace them in our lives
    They may become genuine friends who care
    They might become sisters and brothers too
    They brighten our lives each time they speak
    Changing gray skies to ones of crystal blue
    The hearts of these special ones we care for
    Are so genuine and selfless in every way
    They are in our lives for special reasons
    Making sunny our cloudy and rainy days
    Whether you are a dear sister or brother
    Or the truest friend one in life may find
    You are a treasure to those who love you
    Because of the selfless heart they find.
    (To all those who become genuine friends to us!)
