A Valentine's Day Prayer from a Maiden-in-Waiting
Lord, today I count abundance, not drought. I may not have the romantic love of a man, but I have your unconditional love; I have the love of the Creator of the Universe! I have the love of my Savior. You didn't just tell me that you loved me, Lord; you showed me you did by dying for me.
John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lays down his life for his friends.
I thank you, Lord, for the great love of two godly parents, the love of a brother and sister, and the love of countless extended family and many friends.
I am blessed, Lord. My life is not absent of love; rather, it is overflowing with the love of many, many people. I do not deserve such love, but I thank you for it.
I pray that someday I will have an earthly bridegroom, but for now I am learning to cherish my Heavenly Bridegroom. Lord, draw me still closer to you.
