A Prayer For A Life Partner

Ini diambil dari notesnya Ci Grace, Tuhan masih menulis surat cinta.
Click disini kalo mo baca detailnya.. Yang aku post disini ada beberapa yang aku cut and paste and repost using my own language dan sesuai keadaan hati yang lagi dialamin sekarang ;)

I really love this prayer because its so into the detail and very tidy.. and complete! Im amazed when I read, especially this is prayer from a man ;)
Ci Grace you must be so blessed to have him as your husband, dont you? :D

Now this is also my prayer, with a bit of text edited.. *kan doa dari sisi cewe, bukan cowo* Mao liat doanya ci Grace juga? Bisa click disini.
However all tribute goes to Tepen and Ci Grace, soalnya uda list down doa super rapih and jelas ;p

Few months ago, I thought that I will never need to pray like this again... But God proved me wrong...
The situation now forced me to start from zero again...
And I start with this prayer...

Dear God in heaven...
Holy is Your name...
Thank You for raising me up until this day...
I have been very blessed to be able to know You,
to be saved by You,
And I'm thankful for whatever I endure in this world so far...
Both the good and the bad...
Because I believe that whatever happened, it was Your plan...

(Submissiveness)
Dear God...
Today, let me utter this cry, this hope...
God, this is my prayer...
If this is Your will, let it be done in Your time...
But if it is not, please show me Your ways...

(My needs)
God, You know my need of a life partner, someone, just one man, to be my husband... and father for my children...
I need someone with whom I will build a family that will serve You everyday... (Joshua 24:15)
I need someone that when we both together, we will be more effective to serve You... (Ecclesiastes 4:9)
Since the beginnings You've said that it is not good for man to be alone (Genesis 2:18)
And You know inside out the every reason why it is not good for me to be alone...
The passion to relate with the opposite gender that You have installed in me is so strong...
I don't want to burn in passion like what Your apostle Paul advised us... (1 Corinthians 7:9)
Because love is as strong as death... (Song of Songs 8:6)

(My requests)
Your servant is weak and tired Lord...
I'm tired of the searching process that I have endured since many years ago...
I don't want to divide this heart of mine to someone not of Your choice anymore... *bigSIGH
Therefore, please Lord, if possible, that the next one will be the final one...


The one that You have provided for me...
The one who fears You and put You as number one and I'm number two... (Proverbs 31:30)
The one who can accept me as what I am...
The one whom I will love for the rest of my life as You have love the church... (Ephesians 5:25-31)
The one who will love me back in return... (Ephesians 5:22-24)

He may or may not known to me at the moment...
But when we meet...
Tell me Lord...
Let me know that he is Your choice for me...
Tell him Lord...
Let he know that I am Your choice for him...
Let the feelings towards each other grow...

(My worries, about myself)
But God...
I come with my own family background, my character,
my vision, my self...
I want to be a house wife and freelance designer in the future... Will he be able to accept that?
I have many very bad characters...
Will he be able to accept that?
Can he accept me as what I am...? And love as what I am...?

God, I still have many other reasons to worry...
And I'm really worried...

(My worries, about him)
God...
I hope that I can find a man after God's own heart.
A man that knows Your vision and Your calling in his life.
He will also carries his family background, his character,
his vision, him self...
Will his vision be compatible with mine...?
I think I'm tolerable enough, but can I fully accept
his character as he is...?
Am I strong enough to accept him as what he is...?

God, I still have many other reasons to worry...
And I'm really worried...

(Lessons learned...)
But God...
You have allowed me to learn the process of a relationship with all those that I've endured...
You have been with me always...
During all the happiness and all the bitterness...
I have learned that it takes more than just feelings towards each other...
It also takes more than just sacrifices...

And therefore I should not worry too much about all those things... Because I know, You will always be with me...
And that without Your intervention,
all relationship will not succeed...
This time, we will always keep you in our plan...

(The Hope...)
So please God...
When You finally let me meet him...
Let our future relationship ends up in a firm decision of marriage... And our marriage receives Your favor...
(Proverbs 18:22)


On that day, he will say to me:
"You are bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh"
(Genesis 2:23)
"Now, let both of us do great things for Him in the future..."

(Closing statements...)
Finally, don't worry God...
You will still be number one and he will be number two...
And I believe that he will be fine with that ;)

In Jesus name I've prayed...
Please answer this prayer in Your time...
And give Your servant a heart patient enough to wait... And let him know of this prayer too...
Thank You...
Amen...

See liat kan betapa lengkapnya prayer dari Tepen? Cewe2 pasti meleleh deh haha ;p Gak kepikiran banget sampe into detail and ayat2nya semua jelas.. Before that, my prayer list for my life partner cuma tiga ini aja..
1. There is no better man than a man who loves and fear God with all his heart and his mind. A man after God's own heart who knows his calling and his purpose in God.
2. My life partner will be my prayer partner, so together we can do "duet harmony" before God and will change our world. Matthew 18:19 (kalo yg ini ga ngerti tanya aja panjang jelasinnya soalnya ;p)
3. Mould me to be a Godly woman that worth for his love God. Teach me to be humble, submit and submissive.

Cuma 3doank yang kepikiran dari dulu sampe sekarang haha.. Tapi pas baca doa Tepan wuihhh lengkap euy, jadi ga perlu repot2 list down lagi ah.. ;p Ayokk teman2 yang single, live your single life to the fullest and be content. Baca Lady in Waiting deh very recommended book! And do not worry or anxious about anything, just surrender everything into God's hands ;)

GUE BANGET DEH!!!!! GUE JUGA LAGI PERGUMULAN SOAL INI HAHAHAHA....

Nik, kalo gue lagi kya gitu ya, semuuuua perasaan gue langsung gue serahin ke God. ya kaya bola pingpong....sesering perasaan ini dateng, sesering itulah I surrender all those feeling to God. And you know what, hati ini rasanya dijagai banget bow....sangat2 dijagai... gue jadi terkontrol, lebih bisa mengendalikan diri en ga berharap sepenuhnya ke si doi, en ga melakukan hal2 yg bisa "membahayakan" gue maupun orang2 lain wahahaha.
