One of the things I often pray for and about is my (hopefully) future marriage. I want to be married, and I can see that it's an extremely important aspect of life. God set up the union of marriage between a man and woman at creation stating how “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” We know that some people are gifted to be content with singleness for life, but I can rather confidently say I am not one of those people. Since I seek to obey God and fulfill life like He has designed it, and I've seen the great importance and focus God puts on marriage throughout the Bible, one of my constant prayers is for my marriage.
I'll preface this post by saying that when I started this blog, my original idea was that I would use it to post some random thoughts I had about living biblically and also post some prayers I had. I didn't think much of the prayer part of my idea, and I've never written anything down regarding what I pray about. I don't even keep prayer lists (I know. I know. And I say I have a terrible memory, what am I thinking). But I guess my idea was that it would be a way of publicly expressing my desires for other believers and how I view and speak to God. Not that anyone needs to know those things, but it's a good thing, as we'll see below, and helps to evidence our care for one another and where that care comes from.
