I haven’t posted in a while, but the last time I posted a prayer request, you were all so kind and instrumental with your prayers–I noticed a distinct improvement with the way my boyfriend is seeking God.
For background, he is a Catholic, born and raised, and is now questioning many things about the faith and the Catholic Church. I am so saddened by this, and want to provide him with Christ-like support through this hard time. Since about a month ago, your prayers have helped to make some significant improvements in our conversations about faith. He mentioned that he wants to read the Bible again to see it from “adult eyes”, and he hasn’t objected to me praying out loud for us, that we may continue to grow closer to God and God’s plan. He went to Church with me, and hasn’t objected to having any conversations about God and Jesus.
I feel like we still have a long way to go, in order to fully surrender to Christ as a couple. We have recently committed to no physical intimacy between us, as a means to grow closer to Christ. I am very hopeful that this step will help us to focus on a bigger version of God’s love. I ask for your prayers during this very fragile time. Please pray that we may remain strong, both physically and spiritually, and that God may bless this time of spiritual discovery for my boyfriend immensely, opening his heart to all the beautiful truths about the Christian faith. Please pray that we may grow closer to each other and to God. My heart longs for a relationship with him that has God at the center.
I am so grateful for this forum, and I remember all of you in my prayers, and feel so blessed that prayers are as powerful as they are.
In His love.
