As Sabbath approaches, single Seventh-day Adventists across the globe have confirmed that they are fervently praying for a cute single person to manifest in their local church on Sabbath morning.
"This is a prayer request that transcends age, gender, race and culture in the Seventh-day Adventist Church," said Andrews University-based Campus Prayer Ministries coordinator, Busc Ando. "Everyone is dreaming about the moment when those sanctuary doors open to reveal the shining face of Mr. or Miss. Perfect."
"The intensity of these prayers only grows after college if Adventists graduate single," said Ando. "The pickings will appear to be exceptionally slim when you come back to your local church after college and realize that all your one-time options have moved away or are married off."
Ando stressed the importance of not giving up hope that someone cute and Bible-savvy will eventually turn up. He said that he applauded the millions of Adventists who at least weekly lift up in prayer their hopes that a cute visitor will make this coming Sabbath a particularly happy one. "Don't stop with just the prayer," said Ando. "Send out invites and save a seat."
