Is there a prayer to find love

by Monica (United Kingdom)

Brothers and sisters in Christ I ask for your prayers. I am a young 25 year old woman. I have many friends and an amazing family that I am truly blessed to have, but one thing I really want is a partner. I have never been in a relationship before so i have never been in love..

This upsets me as I feel like I have a lot to give and would love to share my life experiences with someone.
I feel myself getting jealous of my friends in their relationships as I am the only one who’s single – and always have been. I hate the person im becoming because of it. Im jealous, envoious and as a christian, it is not right.

However, things changed recently. The Lord sent me someone that I am absolutely in awe of. I met him unexpectedly, and I absolutely love everything about him and its funny as I wouldnt describe him as someone I would naturally be drawn to, but I am. We’ve dated a few times and I love spending time with him. However, I don’t know if he feels the same way and its driving me insane. I find myself overanalysing every message, every situation and it’s gotten to the point that I’m so worried about him not liking me, that if things don’t work out, it’ll absolutely break my heart. The thought of him with another Woman almost sickens me. It’s really scaring me how emotional I am about it and I don’t want any of this to spoil anything that can potentially become of this.

I have made a couple of mistakes in my life – completely unrelated to love and relationships – that I confessed in church begged for the lords forgiveness. I honestly hope he did… but can’t help but feel like I’m getting what I deserve by being single.. I feel like things might not work out with this guy, because I dont deserve it.

I ask again for the lords forgiveness and I pray that he gives me strength in this situation. I pray that my guy feels the same way about me but if for whatever reason he doesn’t, Lord I beg you PLEASE give me the strength to get through it. Im weak as it is, but this would break me. Please help me to stay faithful and accept the situation. I am a child of god and I want to do what I can to make you happy. Please rid me of my jealousy and reassure me that you are with me regardless. I love you and thank you for what I already have. Please join me in prayers brothers and sisters that I may find love with my guy, or to remain faithful and strong if it doesn’t work out. In the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.

Dear God,

Help me today to understand what love really means.

I don’t mind the red and pink, the plentiful chocolates, and construction paper hearts. I don’t mind that the florists are having a lucrative day. I don’t mind whatever romantic comedy will be coming out in theaters, whatever beautiful heroine falls in love with a hunky hero even though they started out as enemies. I don’t mind the corny poetry and sappy love songs and interminable kissing. I think love is allowed to include all of these things.

But I need for love to be so much more.

I need a love that will still be there when the film credits have rolled, when the orchestra music fades away, when the stage makeup has been rubbed off and all our blemishes are in plain sight. I need a love that can handle my ordinariness. I need a love for unflattering bathrobes and bad hair days, a love that satisfies even when all the chocolate runs out.

I need a love that goes on living when the flowers are dead and buried in the compost heap.

I need a love that’s big enough to include all of us. Big enough for the dating and engaged couples, of course, with their giddy daydreams of a future together. But also big enough for the married folks, whether their passion for each other is still blazing brightly or barely more than a smoldering wick. Big enough for the singles toasting their independence, and for the singles wishing someone would come along and make that independence disappear.

For the lonely and widowed and brokenhearted, I need a love that understands, a love that welcomes in hurt and sorrow instead of excluding them. I need a love that knows how to weep.

I’m not against the simple, butterflies-in-the-stomach love that Valentine’s Day celebrates. I don’t need to be a cynic, scoffing at dewy-eyed youngsters as they trade love notes and bouquets. But if I let my view of love be determined by Valentine’s Day, both I and the world around me will miss out on so much as a result. I need a love that is better than flowers and candy, deeper than boy meets girl, stronger than romance. I need enormous, universe-consuming love—the kind of love that is far too big for any one relationship to contain.

The love I need more than anything is Your love. Without Your love, no other love will ever be sufficient. And with it, every other love becomes richer and truer and more life-giving than it could have been otherwise. We have learned all our best loves from You: the love of faithful friends, of spouses and significant others, of parents and siblings and children. Love that commits. Love that sacrifices. Love that lays down its life. You authored each of these loves, taught us how to recognize them and long for them and give them away. Our best efforts at Valentine’s Day are just a fraction of the wholeness of love.

So today, I ask that you would refresh my vision of love. Remind me of the love that fashioned me in my mother’s womb and dreamed up beautiful plans for my life. Remind me of the love that wept when humanity fell, the love that still weeps each time I break Your heart. Remind me of the love that sent heaven’s royal Son to inhabit our humble Earth. Remind me of the love that died to carry me home.

Today, let everything I see remind me of Your love.

Give me eyes to see the red and pink, the flowers and chocolates, the blossoming romances, as tiny windows into Your limitless love. Let me see the image of God in the faces of the people around me, in the hopeless romantics at their candlelit dinners and the cynics at home with a pint of cheap ice cream. Let me see You in the construction paper hearts awkwardly delivered on the playground, in the crayon scrawl of “Be My Valentine.” In our imperfect love, let me glimpse Your perfect love.

Fill me with that love until I am saturated. And then keep on pouring, until I’m overflowing and flooding my surroundings, until I can’t help but give Your love away to others.

Give me love for those who are easy to love and for those who are difficult. Give me love for my enemies, a love that confounds feelings and explanations. Make me love You so deeply that it becomes impossible not to love anyone created in Your image.

Let today be a day for love. Real love. Big love. Your love.

Dear Presence seekers,

Many of you have asked me for a sample prayer to find a husband or wife. To assist you in your prayers, I wanted to share a model prayer with you that is much like the way I prayed when I was asking God to send me my own husband.

First, rest assured that God’s Word does promise you a spouse of your own if you want one.

Not everyone is required to have a spouse. Some people have a special ability to stay single and enjoy it. The apostle Paul had this gift, and he said it allowed him to focus more on the Lord.

However, marriage is still a VERY good thing. Marriage–between one man and one woman–is the very first institution that God created. He set Adam, the first husband, together with Eve, the first wife, in Genesis chapter 2.

Why?

Because He said:

… “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him” (Genesis 2:18).

So even though the apostle Paul wrote about his special ability to stay single and enjoy it, he was an unusual case. GOD said at the very beginning that it is not good for man to be alone … so He invented marriage.

Therefore, know this: if you desire to have a husband or wife of your own, it IS God’s will to give you one! 🙂

If you need some Scriptures to help build your faith for a spouse, meditate on these verses:

Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart” (Psalm 37:4).

and …

“For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly” (Psalm 84:11).

and …

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!” (Matthew 7:7-11).

I could list Scriptures like this all day, but I encourage you to find your own. It will help you know that you know that you know that it is indeed God’s will for you to receive the spouse you are asking Him for!

Are you ready to pray in your spouse? If so, use this sample prayer to find a husband or wife.

(By the way, always feel free to adapt model prayers like this to make them your own. Use your own words; pray the Scriptures you find on your own that are meaningful to you; and simply pray as Holy Spirit leads YOU, okay?)

Pray this with me:

Father God, I come before You in Jesus’ name.

Father, I want to thank You that You care about everything I care about. You have numbered all the hairs on my head. You know everything about me, and all my days were written in Your book before any of those days existed.

Father, You know that I earnestly desire to have a spouse. Not just any spouse, either, Lord; I want the exact spouse that You have in store for me. I want Your best, and I want to have a marriage that will be blessed the rest of my life. I believe You have such a spouse for me, Lord, because You knew I would want one before You even created me.

So Papa God, in Jesus’ name, I present Your own Word back to You.

Your Word says that if I delight myself in You, You will give me the desires of my heart. Your Word says that it is not good for man or woman to be alone; and You said that I will receive anything I ask You for.

Lord, You would never withhold any good thing from me, for I am the righteousness of God in Christ and I am walking uprightly. I thank You for that, Father.

Now Father, because You have promised me these things, I am lifting Your promises back up to you regarding my desire for a spouse. Father, I desire a husband/wife. Your Word says that every man should have his own wife, and every woman should have her own husband. So I am asking right now that You would bring me together with the spouse You have for me.

Abba Father, I thank You for my husband/wife. Thank You for bringing him/her to me. The timing is up to You; only You know the right way and the right time. My times are in Your hand. But I am insisting that You do it, and I thank You for it in advance right now.

Father God, in Jesus’ name, I lift my spouse up to you.

Wherever my future husband/wife is, I ask in Jesus’ name that they would be godly. Help them to live for You, Father. Heap grace, grace, and more grace upon him/her to seek You and be hot-on-fire for You.

Fill my spouse and I both with Your Spirit, Lord. Help us both to seek first Your Kingdom and Your righteousness, and all these things–including the marriage we desire–will be added to us.

Father, when the timing is right, help us to meet at the right time and in the right way. Help us to recognize one another. I ask also that You would keep them and preserve us for each other. If either of us is in any relationship that would prevent us from receiving Your best, then dissolve that relationship right now in Jesus’ name.

Abba Father, please help us both to walk holy while we wait for each other.

Make us both the people that You want us to be, so that we will be ready for a healthy relationship when we meet. Help us be healed, healthy, and whole on the inside and outside. Keep us hungry and thirsty for You.

Father God, please help my spouse and I to love each other as we love You. Give us the selfless love for one another that You and Jesus model in Your Word. I plead the blood of Jesus over the courtship process, and I ask that You would help us get to know one another in a way that is honoring to You and to each person.

Father, help my spouse and I to avoid even the appearance of evil.

Help us to honor and guard one another’s hearts. I pray that we would flee from temptation, from fornication, and from every impurity. Help us to be accountable to other godly people, and help us live and walk before You in white.

And Father God, to the extent that it is Your will, I decree acceleration into the process of receiving my divinely-appointed spouse. Speed up the process, Lord, as long as the acceleration is a blessing to both me and my future spouse. Bring us both the desire of our hearts.

Thank You, Father. I love You. I bless You, and praise You; and I ask Your blessing on us both in the waiting.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Beloved, if you are earnestly waiting for the Lord to bring you the husband or wife you desire, know that your desire is important to Him.

Our Father cares about everything that matters to you. He knows you intimately, and He has wonderful plans for your life. If you will seek Him first, He will give you all the things that you desire–including a husband/wife (Matthew 6:33).

Life is a mystery, everyone must stand alone

I hear you call my name

And it feels like home

When you call my name it’s like a little prayer

I’m down on my knees, I wanna take you there

In the midnight hour I can feel your power

Just like a prayer you know I’ll take you there

I hear your voice, it’s like an angel sighing

I have no choice, I hear your voice

Feels like flying

I close my eyes, Oh God I think I’m falling

Out of the sky, I close my eyes

Heaven help me

When you call my name it’s like a little prayer

I’m down on my knees, I wanna take you there

In the midnight hour I can feel your power

Just like a prayer you know I’ll take you there

Like a child you whisper softly to me

You’re in control just like a child

Now I’m dancing

It’s like a dream, no end and no beginning

You’re here with me, it’s like a dream

Let the choir sing

When you call my name it’s like a little prayer

I’m down on my knees, I wanna take you there

In the midnight hour I can feel your power

Just like a prayer you know I’ll take you there

When you call my name it’s like a little prayer

I’m down on my knees, I wanna take you there

In the midnight hour I can feel a power

Just like a prayer you know I’ll take you there

Life is a mystery, everyone must stand alone

I hear you call my name

And it feels like home

Just like a prayer, your voice can take me there

Just like a muse to me, you are a mystery

Just like a dream, you are not what you seem

Just like a prayer, no choice your voice can take me there

Just like a prayer, I’ll take you there

It’s like a dream to me

Just like a prayer, I’ll take you there

It’s like a dream to me

Just like a prayer, I’ll take you there

It’s like a dream to me

Just like a prayer, I’ll take you there

It’s like a dream to me

Just like a prayer, your voice can take me there

Just like a muse to me, you are a mystery

Just like a dream, you are not what you seem

Just like a prayer, no choice your voice can take me there

Just like a prayer, your voice can take me there

Just like a muse to me, you are a mystery

Just like a dream, you are not what you seem

Just like a prayer, no choice your voice can take me there

Your voice can take me there, just like a prayer
