Asking a Father for the hand of his daughter

September 11, 2020

Asking a father for the hand of his daughter is a sign of tremendous respect. I encourage you to take this moment seriously and put yourself in the father’s shoes as you approach this exciting moment in your life!  In the Bible, we see a tradition of asking a father for the hand for his daughter. In ancient Israel, families were very much involved in the betrothal process of their children. We see this reflected in Isaac’s and Jacob’s stories:

Isaac & Rebecca- Genesis 24:12-21, 61-67

Jacob & Rachel – Genesis 29

I encourage you to ask for the father’s blessing because the blessing of a father is powerful and will fill your life with the abundance of the Lord. Here are seven things to keep mind when you ask a father for the hand of his daughter so you can ace it! I invite you to review these things every year on your anniversary to hold yourself accountable.
