Prayer for a wife

 Are you praying for a wife or a husband? The preceding marriage prayer is a suitable wedding prayer for you.

God is not only the Creator God but also the God who authored love and romance. The Scriptures begins and ends with marriage — of Adam and Eve and the Bridal body of Christ with Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God. And in-between the Old and New Testaments, godly men and women of the Bible tied the knot and

fulfilled God’s destiny for their lives together.

Marriage is more than a signed contract between a husband and his wife. It is a divine covenant with God as the third party. Marriage is a blood covenant being sealed when the hymen membrane in a woman is being broken and blood is shed for the first time during consummation. God has placed this institution in the society for married couples not only to procreate but to respond to His call to inhabit and take dominion over the earth and proclaim the gospel to the lost.

In this contemporary day and age, the original intent of God for marriage has slowly been forgotten because of the propensity of man towards divorce, legal separation, annulment, illicit co-habitation or living-in, homosexuality, sexual perversion, pornography, and fornication. Those in the Christian circles are not exempted from all these.

However, there are still Christian men and women who are keeping themselves pure and holy while waiting for the right and the best godly

Praying for a Wife

spouse for them. Many of these godly bachelors and bachelorettes have been praying for a wife or husband and fasting to seek the will of God for their lives. Perhaps, you are one of them—patiently waiting and eagerly expecting that one day, you will meet the one God has for you since the foundations of the world.

Do not lose hope because if God has placed a desire in your heart until now to marry a spouse, experience sexual intercourse, and bear children, then be assured that they can happen in God’s appointed time. Begin to pray wedding prayers  for your future husband or wife everyday, blessing him and praying for his protection and goodwill. You may list down Bible verses to declare as prayers for him daily and thank the Lord for him even though he has not arrived yet in your life. Thank God in advance for him. You may listen to God for his specific qualities or character and pray them through.

Then, for the practical side of it, prepare yourself for your meeting and for the marriage you have so long been praying for. Take care of your body and make yourself presentable, neat, and clean because any moment could be the day that he will come. Become emotionally stable, mature, and strong in your spirit as marriage is not as easy as you think it will be. Organize your life and make preparations to become a wife or husband. Learn how to cook, clean, fix household stuff, work efficiently, and handle finances. The moment you prepare yourself seriously for marriage, perhaps the faster your spouse will appear before you.

Continue on praying for a spouse and allow the Holy Spirit to renew your mind with God’s Word daily and take control over your will, emotions, and heart. Guard your heart at all times as not all prospective men or women is the right one for you. It takes a strong discernment to know and to choose God’s best for your life. Do not settle for anything less. You will know the perfect spouse if you are attuned to the voice of God, rested in His presence, and know His perfect will. The result of love is beauty and life. If this person is imparting beauty and life in you and you are at peace, in joy, and excited then this can be God’s spouse for you.

It is important that you have an accountability partner like a trusted pastor or spiritual mentor or a close friend to consult with the matters of the heart. God is the one who gives a man his wife and He speaks to the man and woman that they are meant for each other and the biological and spiritual family in the church or ministry will confirm it.

You may have prayed many prayers before. You may use this prayer for marriage as a guide —

Our Father God, you know the deepest longings of my heart. How I yearn for someone to be with, to talk to, to love me, and to share my life with. I have spent countless nights crying out to you to bring the right person and ordain our meeting. Instill in him the sense of urgency to find me. Let him long for me as well and speak to him that it is me you have chosen for him. Prepare us now in all aspects of our lives and set us free from anything that binds, ensnares, entangles, and addicts us. Remove the wrong people from our lives and cut all our ungodly soul ties from our past relationships and even our emotional or romantic entanglements now with other persons. I ask You, Lord to mold us to be a responsible and committed spouse for each other that our marriage will last for as long as we live. I pray for him that You will protect my spouse and deliver him from all temptations. Give me to someone who will honor me and respect me, love me, cherish me, and take good care of me. I am praying for the best and right spouse for me, the one you planned for me to marry. Order our steps so that our paths will cross in Your beautifully ordained time. Orchestrate events for us to find each other. Keep us pure and holy at all times even when no one is watching because indeed You are. I bless my spouse that he will become who You called him to be. I bless his spirit, soul, and body to be whole. I plead the blood of Jesus over both of us and everything concerning us. Thank you Jesus for this desire to marry and the hope and excitement to enter into this sacred union with You. Have Your way, Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

God is our Husband and Maker. Accept His invitation to be the lover of your soul. Love God first and then when He knows that you are completely His, He will give you the man or woman of your dreams because by then God knows that He is your first love even though you have an earthly partner to share the rest of your life with. If you learn this, God will give you the desires of your heart because it is He who placed those desires as you delighted in Him. Every time you feel discouraged and hopeless about getting married, go back to this marriage prayer and be encouraged.

I watched him wander over to the other preschoolers on the playground. That’s the same little girl who refused to play with him yesterday. The thought made me want to swoop in to the rescue before he ventured back to the same situation. But I knew this was a chance for him to grow and learn more about navigating relationships. 

My son is a people-person, no doubt about it. But building relationships can be hard at any age. It was strange to think that one day he would meet someone and make the most crucial choice of all. He would ask her to be his bride. He was only five at the time. He wouldn’t be thinking about marriage for many years! But I knew God “ordered his steps.” (Psalm 37:23) I also knew the importance of praying for him to meet a godly wife one day.

I remember that day, a short 12 years ago. I can still see him standing on the playground–compassionate, forgiving. Now here we are, about to watch our 17-year-old waltz into adulthood. And with that come the challenges of girlfriends and dating. So recently I’ve asked myself this question. What do I consider the qualities of a godly wife? 

I don’t want to be the kind of person who puts unrealistic expectations on her son or future daughter-in-law. None of us are perfect, after all. But God’s Word gives us clear guidelines on the traits that will help both my son and his wife to have a happy, blessed marriage.

“Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace” (Ephesians 4:2-3 NLT).

In his letter to Ephesus, Paul encouraged the church to walk in a manner worthy of their calling. Paul also referred to the church as the bride of Christ in 2 Corinthians 11:2: “… I promised you as a pure bride to one husband – Christ.” 

Just as we should display humility, gentleness, and patience with one another as Christ’s bride, these same qualities can create a foundation for a healthy marriage. We can look to these verses as a guide in praying for our sons. Will you join me?

We want the best for them and their future spouses. Let’s allow the Holy Spirit-inspired words in Ephesians to guide us as we pray for our sons to meet a godly wife.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for my son. Thank you for the good plans you have for him and his future. You “knitted him together” and created him for a special purpose. I know you have also created someone who he will one day choose to marry. I pray that as He keeps his eyes focused on You, he will be drawn to her godly qualities. Your Word tells us in Ephesians 4:2, “Always be humble and gentle.” I pray my son will meet a woman who shows true humility and treats others with a gentle kindness that is “evident to all.” (Philippians 4:5) 

I pray she will be someone who supports him and encourages him to seek more of You. As they get to know each other, help them both to be patient. And because of their love, help them to “make allowance for each other’s faults” while inspiring each other to become more like Christ. (Ephesians 4:2) Guide and direct them Lord, while they wait on Your perfect timing for marriage. 

Above all, I pray they will “make every effort to keep themselves united in the Spirit, binding themselves together with peace.” (Ephesians 4:3)  I pray they will allow the peace of Jesus to wrap around them and comfort them during difficult times. Thank you in advance for the wonderful, godly wife my son will meet one day. May they have unspeakable joy in their relationship, and may their marriage bring glory to You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
