A Beautiful Prayer for the Single Ladies…
Sharing a beautiful prayer by a great woman, Ruth Bell–Billy Grahams wife. Be blessed sisters!
I pray, all unafraid, as girls are wont to be
I do not want a handsome man
But make him, Lord, like Thee.
I do not need one big and strong, nor yet so very tall,
nor need he be some genius or wealthy, Lord at all;
But let his head be high, dear God, and let his eye be clear,
His shoulders straight, whate’er his fate, whate’er his earthly sphere.
And let his face have character; a ruggedness of soul,
And let his whole life show, dear God, a singleness of goal.
And when he comes, as he will come, with quiet eyes aglow
I’ll know, dear Lord, that he’s the man I prayed for long ago.
