This Is The Prayer Nicole Ari Parker Prayed To Receive Hubby Boris Kodjoe From The Lord
Actors Nicole Ari Parker and Boris Kodjoe have to be one of the sexiest Black couples on the planet. The pair have been married for 13 years, tying the knot in May of 2005. Over a decade (and two kids!) later, the bronze baes seems just as wildly in love as they were in the beginning.
But how did the couple turn their chance meeting on the set of “Soul Food” into “I do?” Well, Parker was praying for her partner, and the 48-year-old so graciously just shared that prayer with her Instagram audience.
Her conversation with God included making a list of everything she wanted in a partner. But then…plot twist…the Lord asked if she was ready for that man, herself. After some self-examination, Nicole realized she needed to take care of herself more–mentally and physically. Her personal to-do list included going to therapy, examining her issues, forgiveness, brushing off her old business plan, renewing her passport and rubbing lotion all over her body.
After this self work, the mom of two claimed that Boris came waltzing big backed and blessed into her life.

Me: Dear Lord, What should I do? GOD: Make a list. Me: A list? GOD: Yes. Write down EVERYTHING you want. Even the parts you don't want me to see. 😒 Me: okay. 💛 GOD: The spiritual stuff, the heart & mental stuff, the physical and the financial. 💛 Me: 😲umm okay: Loving, warm, WANTS to be a husband & father, Fine 😜, WANTS to provide, mentally, physically and spiritually strong, AFFECTIONATE, curious about the world, likes to travel, likes music, likes history, likes art, likes the theatre, big hands, big feet🤔, sexy, really smart, funny, fun, got jokes, makes the highest & best choices for himself, has that "no-matter-what-I-got-this" spirit cause ish is gonna happen, respects his mother, forgives his father, loves himself and knows God. 💛 GOD: Okay now REALLY take that in. SEE him, FEEL him in your mind. SIT WITH THAT…ENJOY THAT..Now ask yourself.. Is he perfect for you? Me: (inhales and exhales deeply) Yes..Lawd..I mean Lord. YES. GOD: Now ask yourself… if he enters the room RIGHT now..Are you perfect for him? Me: (takes reallyyy long pause)…..Proceeds to get mind right & affairs in order, rereads Their Eyes Were Watching God, goes to therapy, examines issues, forgives herself & others, calls parents more often, renews passport, goes to church, does a sit up and goes for a run, dusts off that business idea i had🤔, remembers to laugh, buys nice lotion and rubs it all over body EVERYDAY, then buys some more, stays grateful for all her parts, cherishes friends, dances in her room, balances checkbook, makes green juice, loves herself. (Sidebar: At that point…after all that..i was good either way..happy, confident and moisturized.) 💛 and THEN here he comes… 💛 GOD: Boop.
The best thing about Nicole’s prayer is, that even if the self-work doesn’t result in a partner, the fullness of your life as a result of this process is indispensable.
