Dear princesses of Zion,
Good Evening to you all!! If you are single and still waiting on your Prince of Zion, I would like to tell you to get busy! God wants you to get married even more than you want to! Most times, He is just waiting for you to develop into that wholesome princess of Zion, that virtuous woman. Okay? So, whilst waiting, have it in mind that you are a wife, start to behave like one.
Job- Get busy in your career, thrive at work, as though you had children depending on you for money. Be the best at your job or business.
Domestic- At home, be the best home maker that exists, rise early, say your prayers, have your bath, do the chores and the cooking. Start to practise all that you would have to do if you were a wife. That includes cooking, cleaning, laundry, in short all the domestic chores.
Spiritually- Pray fervently, going to Church every single Sunday and for mid week service, reading your Bible daily, keeping a good appearance.
Service-Another thing to do is SERVE THE LORD!! Serve the Lord with all your heart. I am an usher in my Church, on the average Sunday, I am there for SIX whole hours, sometimes EIGHT!! It is absolutely tiring but I LOVE it. When I get home, I eat and sleep till the next day. This morning when I woke up after another post-ushering slumber, I realised that if i was married, I wouldn’t be able to have that long slumber!! I probably wouldn’t be able to usher. That is the case with a lot of things. As such, I adjure you to serve God in your youth, serve Him NOW!!
Social- Apart from work, Church and home, please get a social life, get involved in interesting things, it could be tennis, travelling, events, blogging, whatever it is. Something fun. Something that you could even introduce to your husband and continue with him. For me, my passion is travelling, I’ve been actively doing this for four years now and have since visited about ten countries across Europe, America, Middle East and Africa. I also enjoy water sports, biking and events. This will help you be motivated about something, stimulates your mind and who knows you could even meet your husband through this activity. Infact, some of you reading this are going to take up new activities this month and will meet your husband there, I decree it now. AMEN.
Physical- Also, please get in shape! Join a gym, or run around your estate to shed some pounds and get your blood pumping. Not to attract a man but to prepare you for all the activity you’re going to be forced to endure when you become a mother. I hope you will do this. Never forget your health or appearance.
Preparation- Start to listen to sermons about marriage, read books, blogs about marriage, attend marriage seminars. I can’t tell you how much of this I have done. I have read so many boos about marriage, websites, prayers, I have attended seminars and listened to sermons.
Here are a few of my favourite.
Those messages are by Pastor Kingsley and Mildred Okonkwo; a power couple, most sincere Pastors I’ve met/come across. Their messages are empowering.
Here is also one of my favourite prayers for those waiting for their own husband.
Holy Father, You said that woman was made from the rib which was taken from man. Therefore
I come to You now, asking for the man whom I was created for – a true steward of God. He shall leave his father and his mother and cleave unto me, and I will be his help meet.
I thank You for a husband who will love me even as Christ also loved the church, and we shall be heirs together of the grace of life according to Your Word.
O Lord my God, You said that the man is the image and glory of God. Therefore I come to You now, praising You for a husband who will nourish and cherish me and not be bitter against me.
He will be blameless, vigilant, sober and apt to teach. He will be patient, respectful, of good behavior, and will hold the mystery of faith in a pure conscience. He will be a just, holy, temperate man – holding fast the faithful Word as he has been taught.
I thank You for a husband who is not covetous, self-willed, easily angered or lifted up with pride. And because he rules well his own house, our children and I will be in subjection to him according to Your Word.
Abba, Father, You said that the head of every man is Christ and he who walks in uprightness fears the Lord. Therefore I come to You now, thanking You for a husband who will give honor unto me, as unto the weaker vessel, so that his prayers will not be hindered.
My husband is blessed, therefore he does not walk in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the seat of the scornful. His delight is in the law of the Lord; and in that law, he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth his fruit in his season. His leaf also shall not wither, and whatsoever he does shall prosper.
I thank You for a trustworthy husband who will please me and render due benevolence unto me according to Your Word.
God Most High, You said that a wife should not depart from her husband and a husband should not put away his wife. Therefore I come to You now, vowing that when my husband is bound unto me, he will not seek to be loosed. I will hold my beloved, whom my soul loves, and I will not let him go. According to Your Word, I decree and declare that whom God has joined together, no man shall put asunder.
I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
May God guide you as you wait on Him, and as you step out to follow His voice, May he cause your God ordained husband to show up. AMEN. Please, to perfect your miracles, always give testimonies, I implore You. Your testimony will encourage others and it will make sure that God sees it through to completion. AMEN.
That will be you sooner than you know. AMEN
