In our culture the way we find a marriage partner is through dating.
This whole ritual of boyfriends and girlfriends is littered with potential pitfalls, which means that very few people escape the process unscathed.
If you are single, pray and ask for God’s blessing in your relationship. If you are married, Pray a covering of protection over each other before leaving your home. In fact, those are the times when you need to be praying the most. The longer you allow an issue to fester, the more difficult it becomes to move beyond it. Talk about how they make you feel and how they’ve affected you emotionally, physically, or spiritually.
Your prayers should include asking the Lord to set guardian angels to war and protect your home and your relationship. Once you have made a decision to forgive, make a decision to leave the issue in the past.
Dating, as exciting as it is, is also a huge responsibility.
As you date you need to keep in mind that the girlfriends that you have are, first and foremost, daughters of God.
