    I have been praying for a lifetime partner since when I am in my college.i met a married soldier before and fall in love with him.we had one child.i cut the relationship because I know this is not pleasing to God.i had prayed for a real and true lifetime partner and ask God to reveal it to me before 2013 ends.a man send me a friend request in facebook and I accepted it. He is a Christian but he is presently in prison but will be going out this year.he had plans to be a missionary and it made me appreciate to consider him as a mate.i can feel that some of the attitudes I want in a man is in him.can I really consider him?we are miles away from each other.but we came from the same country.so after a year of my study in this country,I will go back to my country to work and maybe we will have the opportunity to see and maybe plan for engagement or marriage.he accepts me for who I am in the past because he has a child also before when he was 14 years old.but He said God had changed him and wanted to have a happy life.he was imprison because of drug trafficking, he came from a broken family and unchristian family…but I came from a Christian family, I grew up in the church…but was backslide for nine years…while on that time he was also in the prison…But God had changed him in that place.and I go back also to The Lord 2 years ago before I met this man last year.

      Dear Eve
      We know through our faith that we were created in the image and likeness of God — who is Love (1 John 4:8) — to be loved and to give love. We all have an ache in our hearts to be a “gift” to another; for even God said, “It is not good that man should be alone.”
      This ache especially deepens as we grow older and watch our friends get married, and the temptation to settle out of fear of being alone — and thus grasp for love — becomes all too real.

      God knows who our future spouse is and truly wants what is best for us.The last thing he wants us to do is to settle — to settle out of fear, out of lust or out of insecurity. He has “plans for our welfare and not for our woe” (Jeremiah 29:11) — and while it can be frustrating to wait on God’s timetable, it is well worth the wait. The phrase “You know when you know” was always annoying to us when we were single, yet it made complete sense when we finally found each other.

      God bless you.
      Bye

    You mean that i can just know it from God if he had given me my lifetime partner through my prayers?

      Yes, of course. The encouragement of “Your Father knows what you need before you ask him” is that we have a God who is ready to answer us when we ask Him. He delights in His children coming freely to Him in prayer. So let us ask as we would in a family relationship and then experience the blessings of praying to our all-knowing and loving Father.
