Russel Wilson recently revealed on Instagram Live that he also did some praying for his future wife.
The doting husband dropped gems to describe what he prayed for as a single man looking for his future wife. Wilson added to the conversation about prayer and finding equally-yoked mates, saying, “the funny thing is everybody asks what the prayer was for Ciara, but nobody really asks me what the prayer was for me.”
The Seattle Seahawks quarterback said he had five key characteristics he looked for in a woman that he’d potentially share his life with– “a woman of faith, a woman who is faithful, an independent woman, a woman to love him the way his mother loved his dad, and woman who could ‘tilt the room.’”
“I got five for five, plus some more,” he expressed to LaLa Anthony– their close friend when describing how those attributes fit his now-wife Ciara.
Ultimately, he decided, “I didn’t want perfection; I want the perfect thing for me.”
During the first part of the session, LaLa asked her homegirl to share what she prayed to God before she met Wilson.
“That’s the thing, I prayed many nights,” Ciara responded. “The thing is like, people always say ‘the prayer.’ It’s not one prayer, it’s multiple prayers. Especially when you’re going through a big transition in life. I was single mom-ing it and that is something I never envisioned, never imagined. And at that point, you’re at a time in your life where you have to think about exactly where you are and where you want to go.”
As Sis2Sis previously reported, Ciara shared details of “the prayer” and how she landed a successful and God-fearing man like her husband.
