Front Porch Fridays: Trusting God With Your Future

Prayer for My Future Husband
By Ruth Bell Graham, written at age 13

Dear God, I prayed, all unafraid
(As we’re inclined to do),
I do not need a handsome man
But let him be like You;

I do not need one big and strong
Nor yet so very tall,
Nor need he be some genius,
Or wealthy, Lord, at all;

But let his head be high, dear God,
And let his eye be clear,
His shoulders straight, whate’er his state,
Whate’er his earthly sphere;

And let his face have character,
A ruggedness of soul,
And let his whole life show, dear God,
A singleness of goal;

Then when he comes (as he will come)
With quiet eyes aglow,
I’ll understand that he’s the man
I prayed for long ago.

Front Porch Fridays are designed for the encouragment and support of the young lady blogger, striving to bring her closer to the Creator in each post.
