Native Son replied to Rush's discussion Praying for Wife Material. Selfish Prayer? in the group Christian Men
"To combine a couple of quotations and add a song lyric. "Be careful what you pray for...the Lord works in mysterious ways." "You don't always get what you want,  but you always get what you need.""

Kenneth replied to Rush's discussion Praying for Wife Material. Selfish Prayer? in the group Christian Men
"No, in my opinion, there's nothing wrong with your praying for God's guidance and intervention in sending you a suitable Christian young woman who could potentially be your wife down the road. The choice of a spouse is certainly a major…"

Kluk J. replied to Rush's discussion Praying for Wife Material. Selfish Prayer? in the group Christian Men
"Hi, It is an interesting question.  Recently a man of my church, one of the teachers of sunday school, get divorced, his ex-wife wasn't Christian. Then he was telling us not to marry a non-Christian. And then he asked us "Who are…"

Rush replied to Rush's discussion Praying for Wife Material. Selfish Prayer? in the group Christian Men
"I agree that Faith without deeds is dead. God helps, but I have to work at it too. I don't think that praying out of money for your own ambitions that do not have God is good. For example I think its good to pray for success in Him through many…"

Michal the Slovak replied to Rush's discussion Praying for Wife Material. Selfish Prayer? in the group Christian Men
"When Adam was in the garden of Eden, before God created Eve, he (Adam) was perfect, because he didn't sin yet. And because he was perfect, he was 100% husband material, he was ready to be a husband. Maybe God wants to teach you something, or…"

Penelope replied to Rush's discussion Praying for Wife Material. Selfish Prayer? in the group Christian Men
""selfish" isn't the vice I'd be worried about in this context.  "Presumption" is.  It has been my experience, and I think this is supported by parts of Paul's epistles, that there is value in preparing…"

Sir replied to Rush's discussion Praying for Wife Material. Selfish Prayer? in the group Christian Men
"Maybe you'll get it that way.  Abraham didn't, though, and I think we can call him a winner."

Rush replied to Rush's discussion Praying for Wife Material. Selfish Prayer? in the group Christian Men
"Thank you all for the replies. I know that it is on God's watch, but I also don't want to be waiting forever and end up being a old parent, I'd rather be a younger parent, eventually."

Jack Bauer replied to Rush's discussion Praying for Wife Material. Selfish Prayer? in the group Christian Men
"It might be a bit selfish.  But, a lot of prayers are.  And, that's fine.  Just remember to include the "thy will be done" part.  There's nothing wrong with asking for what you want.  Humility comes not…"

Bill Kropp replied to Rush's discussion Praying for Wife Material. Selfish Prayer? in the group Christian Men
"I definitely agree with what these guys said. I praye for a long time for my wife to come along, and it seemed like it wasn't going to happen. So at a certain point, I just put it in God's hands, and lived my life for Him. Not to mention,…"

Roland replied to Rush's discussion Praying for Wife Material. Selfish Prayer? in the group Christian Men
"Of course not, that is how a believer is to live, friend. It took me 20 years of prayer; I have the wife the Lord provided me, and now I understand why it seemingly took so long... Our Lord is not in a hurry, he provides the best for us, if we…"

Sir replied to Rush's discussion Praying for Wife Material. Selfish Prayer? in the group Christian Men
"It's OK to pray for yourself.  Why not?  However, it's easy to put something you want as something you won't surrender.  If it's become the focus... surrender it!  Surrender is crucial.  God may be…"

Tim Dienes replied to Rush's discussion Praying for Wife Material. Selfish Prayer? in the group Christian Men
"One pastor I knew would encourage such a prayer, but also added that I pray that He would help me become more ready to be a husband, more teh kind of husband He would like for me to be."

Bill Anderson replied to Rush's discussion Praying for Wife Material. Selfish Prayer? in the group Christian Men
"I think if that is taking over the relationship you have with God i.e. Your praying more for that then praying for a relationship with God, then yes I think it can be selfish. But just by itself I don't think it is selfish we are made to do…"
