‘I Was Ready to Level Up’: Ciara Finally Divulges the Prayer She Made Before Marrying Russell Wilson

At long last, Ciara is finally sharing the prayer that led her to her husband Russell Wilson.

During a live stream event hosted by Angie Martinez in promotion of her new album “Beauty Marks,” the singer got candid about how she came to ask God for what she wanted in a relationship. For the single mom, there was a high emphasis on meeting a man who would not only accept her but her son, Future Zahir, too.

“I prayed for a God-fearing man. I prayed for discernment. I prayed for wisdom, to really learn from the wisdom that I’ve gained from the experience that I’m going through,” she began during the Friday, May 10, chat with Angie Martinez. “I prayed for a man that loved kids, because, obviously me having my son, if you’re gonna love me you’ve gotta love him. I prayed for a man that was worldly as well. Because I love to explore so someone that was gonna edify my world, that was important to me. I was ready to level up!”

She later implored fans to “be specific” in their prayers.

Ciara reportedly met Wilson in 2015 during a wrap party for the NBC summer series “I Can Do That.” The singer described the moment when the two spotted one another from across the room and said they later learned they had the same feelings about each other.

“I remember looking at my husband the first night we met — it’s like a movie — when we talk about our story back to each other, we both have the same feelings. … It was a calm feeling all over my body,” the singer explains. “I also remember looking at him and I thought he was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. And I couldn’t remember half of what he was saying … but when you know, you know. We say that and we also talk about being equally yoked. It’s just light. When it’s light, it’s right. It’s easy. Even in the toughest times.”

Fans have long begged Ciara to share the prayer she made in order to meet a man like her Seattle Seahawks spouse.

“@ciara what prayer did you ask for to get a great man 😂 😂”

“I. NEED. THAT. PRAYER ….stop playing with us.”

“Girl what was your PRAYER⁉️”

The quarterback, who is now the highest-paid player in the NFL, often gives his wife loving shoutouts on Instagram and epic date nights. He’s also fully embraced being a stepdad to Future, whom Ciara shares with the rapper of the same name.
