“I prayed for you before I knew you.
I prayed even harder once I met you.
I asked God to please send me a husband to love me, even more than he would love himself.
I asked to have a husband that would take very good care of me, as well as the unconditional love.
I asked God to please send me a husband that would take me all over the world.
For the life of me I don’t know what possessed me to pray so specifically at the young age of fourteen.
All I know is that I met you thirty days before my 15th birthday and I haven’t stopped loving you since.
What’s more beautiful is that I married my prayer…
One day I woke up and I realized you were God’s gift to me.
A special thanks to Felicia Sams for coining the phrase and title of this literary piece without even knowing it. Thank you.
