Andrew’s recent post “14 Bible Passages Every Single Should Memorize” got me thinking about something one of my mentors impressed upon me: the value of praying the Scriptures. So one thing I’ve tried to prioritize in relationships is to pray specific Scriptures for the person I’m dating. It’s easy to over-think dating and make it more complicated than it needs to be, but the awesome thing about Scripture is it’s always true and you can’t mess it up! Kind of like going back to the basics.

- “That their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God’s mystery, which is Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:2-3).
- “Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established”…
