I have had much concern of late regarding spouses for my children, especially my two daughters, as they are the oldest of the four, so I thought I would write them a letter and share it with you. I hope it may help some of you who are as concerned as I am. Kathleen Marie
I have prayed for your husband since the day you were born. I know God has the perfect man, just for you. The perfect soul mate and when I say perfect I don’t mean a man without flaws but I do mean a man who will love you for who you are in Christ.
I have prayed your husband will be a man who loves the Lord because if he loves God first he will love you deeply and unconditionally. He will love you enough to lay his life down for you.
Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge. Hebrews 13:4
I have prayed your husband will be a man who serves the Lord with all his heart because if he serves God, he will serve and take care of you.
I have prayed your husband will have a great sense of humor because if he can laugh at himself he can laugh with you and the world.
I have prayed your husband will cherish the world he was born into, because if he cherishes the world, he will cherish you and share his world with you.
I have prayed your husband will be soft spirited and tender because then I know he will be kind and tender with your heart.
I have prayed your husband will be patient with himself and others because then he will be patient with you and the children God will bless you with.
I have prayed your husband will be a hard working and responsible because then I know he will do all he can to provide for you.
I have prayed your husband is teachable and eager to learn because then I know he will have so much to share and will listen to you and others.
I have prayed your husband is discerning because then he will know when you need a hug or a shoulder to cry on when you can’t explain how you feel.
I have prayed for your spouse, for the man God wants you to spend the rest of your life with. Please be patient and trust the Lord to know who is best for you. God wants to give you the deepest desires of your heart.

Marching Around Jericho is a spiritual guide. As you read through the pages, powerful and transformative instruction and equipping takes place. We follow Jesus as he leads us around the walls, imparting kingdom truths with each passing, finally arriving at the gates of the walled-off city, our spouse’s unbelieving heart. After the circles in prayer are complete, we arrive fully prepared to command the walls to crumble and be removed, making a way for our spouse to step from the rubble of lies and captivity, into faith and freedom!
