Anxiety kept Ifeanyi up all night. He couldn’t understand why his family had not been as excited as he had been about his proposal to Mary and her decision to marry him. He was afraid that they would try to use reason against his passion. Would they really prefer for him to marry Ijeoma, even against his wishes? What was he missing?
At 1pm, he gave up on trying to sleep, and got out of bed to pray. But he was also afraid to pray. He was afraid that God would oppose him too. He knew that he had acted in passion when he had asked Mary to marry him. He had intended to wait until he had a clear leading from God to proceed with their relationship. However, he felt that he was only being honest with himself about his desire. After all, the Bible says that “it is better to marry than to burn“.
“Oh Lord, please… Make a way for us. Please, Lord, I pray that they will grant their blessing, and that Mary and I will be married, and be together at last. Oh Lord, please…”
