Find a sacred, holy place where you and your soon-to-be-fiance can be alone
Part of being in a Christian marriage is recognizing together God’s great works. Rather than proposing at a high-end restaurant or in front of a large family gathering, think of natural wonders or even a beautiful church as a proposal site.
You want your fiance to remember this engagement fifty years from now. A church or nature spot are places that you can go back to.
Invoke the name of God in your proposal
“Will you marry me?” just won’t do. Talk about how God brought her into your life. Bring up points in the Bible that show marriage at its strongest like with Noah and his wife, Mary and Joseph, etc.
You can even use verses from the Song of Solomon, the Bible’s book that is dedicated to a couple married in God’s eyes. Bringing up God’s will in your proposal gives your marriage a Christian foundation from the very beginning.
