Just when I thought that I had completed the series on ‘tips on godly single-hood’, I was prompted to publish another write-up, still on this topic.
Today, I will be sharing on 10 important prayers for every single lady before marriage
They will serve as a means for guiding you in your singlehood days. They also form a platform for reinforcing a strong foundation in your journey of marriage.
Additionally, I will be sharing supporting bible verses for an appropriate understanding.
Although, the prayers are listed in a worded format (in no particular order of importance), I encourage you to make full-proof of every sentence here.
