#570 - I'm Dating Again After My Marriage - Part 1
Volume 2 - Prayers to Love Our Neighbor
Dear Father, it seems so strange to be dating. I was married to the man or woman I thought I'd be with the rest of my life. However, here I am. I suffered through a divorce. I suffered through the death of my spouse. I've been experiencing a loneliness that I've never had before. It's a loneliness that includes the weight of a shattered dream. I'm not just single again. I must cope with the loss of a marriage. Father, I don't want to be alone anymore. I want to love and be loved. I want emotional intimacy with a special person. I want to snuggle with my best friend on a chilly winter night. I want to find a lover again but I want our relationship to be right in Your eyes. I don't want to add to my pain the drama of a bad second marriage. Where do I find this person? At church? Being fixed up with someone by friends and family? In a support group? In an online dating website? Will the person I'm looking for be divorced? Will they be mourning the loss of their first spouse? Will my family accept him or her? Will their family accept me? How much will I long to see my former spouse in my new significant other? How much will I long to see nothing that reminds me of my former spouse in this new person? How have I been damaged by what happened to my first marriage? Father, I am not You and I cannot answer these questions. I need Your wisdom, insight, and understanding. I need You to orchestrate my meeting this person. I need You to make it clear they are the right one. I need You to help me be the spouse that honors You and encourages the spiritual growth of my partner. Please help me. I'm depending on You to bring to me the man or woman whom I will spend the rest of my life with. Amen.
