Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for this wonderful guy You have brought into my life. Thank You for hearing my prayer, and for preparing this man to come into my life at just the right time. I praise You for Your graciousness in hearing my heart cry, and for this wonderful answer to prayer.
Thank You for His love for You, for His desire to know You more and to grow in grace and mature in the Christian faith. Oh Lord, it is amazing to realise how You have gone before and prepared both him and me for this meeting of our hearts.
Lead and guide him today I pray, and in the days that lie ahead. Endow him with the qualities of spiritual leadership and godly wisdom, and pour into his heart the peace and love that only comes from You. Keep him I pray, from the wiles of the evil one and may he continue to walk in integrity and faithfulness, to grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, with every passing day.
Give him courage to stand fast in the faith and keep him from spiritual pride, but rather give him a discerning heart, to know what is good and to shun what is evil. Fill his mouth and his heart with the word of God and may he learn more and more to walk humbly before You and to trust You in all areas of life.
Thank You, Lord, for Your guidance thus far. May we walk together in godly love and respect, and in the godly harmony and grace that only comes to those that seek You first in every area of life.
Praise Your name for answered prayer. Keep me ever humble before Your throne of grace. In Jesus' name I pray,
