Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – Should I Pray About Someone If They Are In A Relationship?

Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – Should I Pray About Someone If They Are In A Relationship? July 1, 2015

AnsweringAnother installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical, rational and the best possible solution, in other words 180 degree turn from Debi and friends answers. As always  all spelling and grammar in the posting is unchanged from the original author.

Okay, on to today’s question:

Should I pray about someone if they are in a relationship?

My question is, is it impure to pray for a guy as a future mate even if he is already in a relationship?

For a change the answer given to this young woman isn’t a bad one at all. She was told to simply pray for the guy to bless him, not pray for him to be ‘The One’ That’s actually sound advice. The rest of it not so much. What would you advise?
