Pray for a Good Husband Are You Searching for the Right Man? Here’s How to Pray and Get Results!
Learning how to pray for a husband is not as complicated as it may seem. One of the biggest myths of the day is that there is a great shortage of ‘good’ men. It’s not that there is a shortage of good men, many women are searching for good men in all the wrong places.
If you’re searching for a good man, you probably won’t find him at school, work, on the train, the mall or your church (I’ll explain why later).
Before you continue your search for a husband, take a deep breath and relax – if you are alive, you still have time. Here are 6 easy steps that worked for me when I prayed for a husband.
Step 1: Write your prayer request on paper. When I was praying for a husband, I decided to write my request on paper to God. There is something special about writing to God on paper. It’s like you’re pouring your heart out to Him.
Then you’re going to pray the request back to God. For example, let’s say you wrote: “Dear God, please help me to find the right husband.” You’re going to read and pray your request back to Him.
Now, I have to be honest, I probably wrote God more than a dozen letters about finding a husband until He finally answered my prayers. So, if God doesn’t answer you immediately, don’t give up hope. He hears your prayers – even on paper. Remember, His time is not our time.
Important Note: In your letter to God, make sure you are very specific on the type of husband you want. For instance:
1. A Godly man.
2. A man who will love me.
3. A man with a good sense of humor.
4. A man that is handsome, but with a good personality.
5. A man who will never abuse me.
6. A dedicated man that will never leave me.
7. A man that has a strong relationship with Christ.
This is just a sample list. Feel free to use it – you can make your list as long as you desire.
Step 2: Fold your letter up and pray over it. This doesn’t have to be a long prayer, just a short prayer like: “Lord, I believe you will answer my prayers.”
Ask God to Send a Good Husband
Step 3: Bury the letter in the ground. Yes, I know. This may sound a bit strange. After all that work you’re going to bury the letter? In reality, I started burying my prayer request letters in the ground, at the beach, after I got married. I did something a little unorthodox when I was single (like this isn’t). Now, it’s important to note that when I started praying to God for a husband, I was very young, so my tactics were a bit odd.
I would write letters to God, pray over them and throw them out the window while riding down the road in a car. This may sound funny to you, but I truly felt that God would send an angel to report the details of the letter back to Heaven. Then He would answer them.
As I matured in Christ, He revealed to me that He read the details of my request even before the ink from my pen dried on the paper.
Step 4: Ask others to pray for a husband for you. When two or more people are gathered for prayer, God is in the midst (Matthew 18:20). Just make sure you choose people that can actually get a prayer through. There is no point in asking someone to pray for you and they never seem to get their prayers answered.
Keep in mind, the person that you ask for prayer doesn’t have to be married. I remember asking anyone that I knew who could get a prayer through. I personally asked the elderly mothers in the church who got their prayers answered from God.
If you decide to ask a minister in your church to pray for you, make sure you are specific. Don’t just say, “Pray that I find a man.” That sounds too desperate. Say something like: “Pray that I find the ‘right’ husband,” or “Pray that God helps me to find a good husband.”
Also, never walk up to a prophet or minister out of the blue and say: “Pray that I get a husband.”
I tried that once when I was single with a prophet that came to our church to preach. I thought that he would prophecy about my future husband. I assumed that he would say: “God told me that you are going to get married soon.”
I was totally wrong. Instead, he said, “Oh, okay.” Then he walked away. I was so embarrassed. Thank goodness no one was around to hear my desperate plea.
Save yourself the embarrassment and don’t make the same mistake I did.
God has someone for you.
Step 5: Pray without ceasing. Pray daily until God answers your prayers like in: 1 Thessalonians 5:17. Just make sure that this isn’t your only prayer. It’s sort of rude to come to the Creator and beg Him for a husband as soon as you wake up in the morning. Also, when you pray, ask God to prepare you to be a good wife. Often times, some women will pray for a husband, but they won’t prepare themselves spiritually for a husband.
Step 6: Don’t assume that the first man you meet is the right ‘one’. Remember, Satan knows that you’re in the market for a husband. So, he will try to distract you by sending the wrong men. Just because a man is a Christian, pastor or a good choir boy doesn’t mean he’s the one that God has for you. After I asked God to help me find a husband, I ran into a few milk duds along the way. Years later, I looked them up on Facebook and I am SOOOOOO glad I didn’t get involved with them.
It’s very important that you seek God for a husband. When you meet a potential mate, He will let you know whether or not your prospective husband is the one.
Also, it’s important to know that God isn’t predictable. I assumed that I would meet my husband at my church. I imagined him walking in one Sunday morning. I lived about 50 miles away from my church. My future husband lived only 15-20 minutes away from where I lived at the time. So, you never know where you will meet your future husband.
Bonus: Leave it in God’s hands. When you have prayed for God to find a husband, trust in Him completely. Don’t worry about when, where or how you’re going to meet him. The moment that I stopped stressing over when I was going to meet the right one, that’s when God stepped in and introduced me to the love of my life. We have been married for 16 happy years.
So, if you feel super anxious about finding a husband, I understand how you feel. I was afraid that I would not meet the right man because I was told there was a shortage of men. That is simply not the case. If it is in God’s plan for you to get married, you will eventually get married.

The following prayer and scriptures are for the single Christian women who may be searching for a Prayer for a Husband from God.
Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that God does not plan to abandon us, but to give us the future we hope for. God’s love surpasses knowledge and we could only imagine (Ephesians 3:19). The Bible also commands us that we should bring “everything in prayer and supplication.” To pray for a husband, if it is the desire of a woman’s heart, is therefore very biblical for God has commanded us to pray for our every need and desire. It is also right to expect God to lovingly answer our prayer with something that reflects His exceeding goodness! Without faith, it is impossible to please God!
However, it is also true that praying for a husband can become very challenging when we are asked by God to wait for the answer indefinitely. But one thing is sure, His promise in His Word is true – He
Praying For A Husband
always provides for our every need, even the grace to wait for His perfect time.
Matthew 6:33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
Luke 12:24 (NASB) “Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap; they have no storeroom nor barn, and yet God feeds them; how much more valuable you are than the birds!”
Psalm 103:1,5 (NASB) “Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.”
Ephesians 3:17-19 (NASB) “…that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.”
Jeremiah 29:11 (The Message) “I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.”
Psalm 37:4 (NASB) “Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart.”
If we will choose to delight in God (Psalm 37:4) and trust Him with all our heart and lean not on our own understanding (Proverbs 3:5 ff.), He will lead us to His perfect will, which is good beyond our imagination. There are many single women I know who are joyful and fulfilled despite the yet unanswered prayer for a husband. I also know of women, who have prayed and received a wonderful answer, now being married. I believe that both these groups of women are successful in their prayers because they learned to trust and depend on God to be their source of joy and strength.
But what if our godly mate is already ready for us and waiting but it is you who are not yet ready for him? Another element is that we should also pray for God to prepare us to be a godly wife.
Lastly, because each of us is unique, our prayers should definitely be marked by unique requests based on our desires and even calling or purpose in life. A missionary friend of mine, for example, is asking God for someone with a similar passion for missions. Thus, our prayers for a husband may vary but it will be good to keep in mind that they should be faith-filled prayers based on God’s Word, and honest, heartfelt prayers that are expressions of our trust and intimacy with our Heavenly Father.
Abba Father, I thank You that you love me and that You have an awesome plan for my life! You have plans to give me the future that I hope for. As I lift up to you my desire for a godly spouse, continue to conform the desires of my heart to Your heart’s desires. Cause me to delight in You more than any other thing. Prepare me also to be the godly wife, that I will be a rare jewel of a blessing to my future mate. Raise me up to be a Proverbs 31 woman who lives in the fear of You (Proverbs 31:30). Preserve me for my future mate and guard my heart. (Song of Solomon 2:7, 8:9)
I thank You God that even as You are preparing me, You are also raising up for me a man who loves Jesus with all his heart, mind, soul and strength — a man after Your very heart (Matthew 22:37). Raise him up in Your Word, let him be meditating on Your precepts day and night, and bring him success in all he does (Psalm 1, Joshua 1). Bless him and fill him with the knowledge of Your love (Philippians 1:9) and Holy Spirit. May he always about in joy and in the fruits of the Spirit (Romans 15:13). Keep his eyes and his ways pure. I pray that he will make a covenant to guard his eyes and heart (Job 31:1)!
I also pray that he will be a man who is able to lead in righteousness, justice and love (Psalm 45). Raise him up to be a godly husband and father. Thank You Lord that You know me well and You know how to pick the best mate for me. I trust in Your perfect will and I pray that I will recognize it in the right time. You make everything beautiful in Your time! In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
