I’m an eternal idealist and believe 100% in honesty and
mutual accountability. That said, I know I’ve been a little, or a lot, rough on
the male gender in a few of my blogs. I’m not apologizing because I meant what
I wrote; I’m just saying I realize it may have been a little harsh. So in
writing about all the things I don’t like about men (male athletes), I began to
think about what exactly I do want in a man. As I came up with such a
description, I decided to ask God for a man to participate in my happily ever
after. And this is what I said:
Dear Lord Jesus,
First of all I thank You for bringing me to a point in my
life where I can accept Your unconditional love through grace. I also feel that
through grace, I have come to a place where I can also accept the love of a man
in the way You planned from the start. I know You already know what I want
because You know everything. But like all my prayers, I’m going to ask anyway. So
ya, thanks ahead of time for listening.
Most importantly, please send me a man that will never put
me above You, but as we grow together, will put me before all others. In return
I promise to put him second only to You in my life as well.
God I know I am opinionated, stubborn, often a handful, and
sometimes two. Please send me a man that is not at all intimidated, and one
that will never hit me, but won’t hesitate to put me in my place when I get
overly emotional and/or act crazy. It is a must that he argues with me, and may
walk away but will never walk out.
You know I always try to see the best in people and trust in
what they say, so I need someone who’s genuine and honest. I pray we will
both be mature enough to see this as the strength it is and not mistake it for
Please bring me a man with high ambition, but whose goals do
not outweigh his motivation. And one who supports me in my own ambitions, as
long as they go along with Your plans for us. You know I have a short attention
span so intelligence, a sense of humor, and um, an experimental mentality, are important
too. And please put it all together in a package that I find attractive –
preferably over 6’3”.
God you know I want a certain lifestyle. So please bring me
a man that will be happy with me cooking 4 (or 5) nights a week, doesn’t expect
me to have more than 3 kids (at the most because that’s a HUGE compromise on my
part), and will be ok with me getting my boobs done post pregnancy. Lol.
I pray for someone whose love for You will bring him home
when the Devil succeeds in temporarily blinding him to his love for me and/or
our children, and who can respect me enough to work through our problems
together, even when its hard. I also pray he be so competent in handling
his own life that I can feel supremely confident in allowing him to be the
unquestioned head of our household as You intended.
Lord Jesus You have told us when we live our lives according
to Your will then we are to expect You to handle the rest. So WHEN You bring me
this beautiful man, I promise to make our house a Godly home, be his woman,
friend, and personal porn star – when the time is appropriate (lol) – and a
modern day Proverbs 31 chick. Until we meet I pray You would bless his steps in
becoming the man You intended for him to be, and mine as well in becoming that
I praise you in advance for answering my prayer. Thank you
Father. I love you.
***I know this is totally different than most of my posts…but
it was on my mind and in my heart so I wrote about it. Although I don’t approve
of certain things that go on in this society, I am not a man hater. I just
think men should be the men their women and children need without it being
required of them. I am working hard to be that woman, and I want a man that’s willing
to work at it too. What’s accepted isn’t always what’s right.
