When I was 12 years old a beauty queen came to my church and spoke. She told us she started praying for her future mate when she was young and it was very important that we pray too. I started praying for Keith when I was that young. I didn't know who he was, but I knew it was important to pray for him. I didn't know where I was going to meet him or what he looked like but I knew God did. Praying continued through high school, college and seminary until one day when I was home for Christmas Jana Wright told me about this tall, dark, handsome guy who was just starting seminary. What a recommendation from Ed & Jana Wright! I met him and I kept praying. I felt like God was answering my prayers for a future mate in Keith.
20 years of praying - 1993 to 2013 and it hasn't stopped although right now it's a different kind of prayer. Pleading, asking, pleading, relentless talking to God about my mate. My mate that I've been praying for for 20 years...I will not give up.
