If we pray to God for a good relationship and this person comes into our life and is good, does that mean he/she was God-sent and our prayers were answered? And is it okay to pray for God to send us a Good, Godly mate?
First, the answer can be yes or no based on this: “Is the person Born Again and is he or she committed to living for God? Or, is he or she just a really nice person? Some people are very nice and have great human values; but, they have no intention to live for God. In their hearts, they are far from God. This is why it’s always wise to invite people to church, and to ask what place God has in their lives. Over a period of time, you’ll begin to see if they are just good people or if they are committed Christians. Second, not only is okay to pray for a godly mate, it’s wise to do so. Otherwise, you could be tempted to settle for whoever comes along.
