Mandisa Writes V-Day Letter to Future Husband; Says ‘I Pray for You’

By EEW Magazine News & Entertainment Editors

Do you pray for your future husband? Well, Christian Contemporary recording artist Mandisa surely does. In fact, she’s gone as far as to post an open letter to the "Mr. Right" she (likely) hasn’t met just yet.

“We haven't met each other yet (at least I don't THINK we have),” wrote the “Good Morning” singer, “but there are a few things I want to say to you on this day that celebrates love.”

Mandisa, who, at the time of writing this post, is gearing up for her 1st annual “Galentines” girls night out event, says in the letter, “I will not be crying my eyes out watching a chick flick by myself (or with my life-long friends "Ben & Jerry") tonight.”

Instead, she’ll be having a grand old time with thousands of other women “celebrating love with a bunch of fellow single sisters in Nashville, and across the globe.”

Here is a portion of her letter:

Dear future husband:

Happy Valentine's Day! We haven't met each other yet (at least I don't THINK we have), but there are a few things I want to say to you on this day that celebrates love.


Sometimes I wonder if you pray for me like I pray for you. I do, ya know. A lot! I used to just get depressed wondering what in the world was taking you so long! But God has been doing such an amazing work in my life over these last few months. I am learning to rest in the fact that He is our Holy Match-maker. If He hasn't introduced us yet, He has a good reason for it. So rather than sulking in my loneliness, I decided to turn those longings into prayers instead.

I pray that He is making you into the man He created you to be when you were still in your mother's womb. I intercede specifically for wisdom, vision, meekness and humility. I ask his Holy Spirit to empower you to live a life of purity in this often sensual-driven society. I believe He wants you to be a man that loves His Word, His people, and His Presence, so I pray for those desires to trump all others. And among so much more, I pray that God would give you eyes for me. That you will recognize me as "your rib" and pursue me as such.

Until that day, know that I am allowing God to make me into the woman He created me to be...

What a novel idea! Do you pray for your future Mr. Right?
