Prayer to See His Heart
Precious Lord, I pray that You give me the right mentality to find a husband. I pray that I do not look at his appearance or on the height of his stature, because for those things I could reject him.

I pray that I learn to look at the heart of the man I intend to marry rather than his appearance. Amen.
