Ciara is finally revealing the prayer she said before meeting Russell Wilson.

While promoting her new album, Beauty Marks, the "Level Up" singer sat down with radio personality Angie Martinez for an interview and detailed parts of her prayer that she believes led her to him. "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 said.

The 33-year-old continued, "I prayed for a man that loved kids, because, obviously me having my son, if you're gonna love me you've got to 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!"

Ciara also admitted she thought she would be single for four years after her turbulent breakup with her son's father, Future, in 2014. "I had that in my mind ... I was really ready to take my time and be patient and let love really fall in love the right way," she told the audience. "I desired something new, I desired something different. I desired to be loved to the highest capacity and to be loved the way that I felt I deserved."

In July 2016, the singer married the Seattle Seahawks quarterback, who recently became the highest paid NFL player. The happy couple began dating in April 2015 and tied the knot at the Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England. On April 28, 2017, Ciara and Wilson welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Sienna Princess Wilson.

Last month, the proud parents announced the launch of their joint production company, Why Not You. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the company will focus on film, TV, and digital content that will include "inspiring and aspiring narratives and human interest stories."
