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.
- 1 First, rest assured that God’s Word does promise you a spouse of your own if you want one.
- 2 If you need some Scriptures to help build your faith for a spouse, meditate on these verses:
- 3 Are you ready to pray in your spouse? If so, use this sample prayer to find a husband or wife.

- 5 So Papa God, in Jesus’ name, I present Your own Word back to You.
- 6 Father God, in Jesus’ name, I lift my spouse up to you.
- 7 Abba Father, please help us both to walk holy while we wait for each other.
- 8 Father, help my spouse and I to avoid even the appearance of evil.

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.
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).
“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).
“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).

IT IS GOD’S WILL FOR YOU TO GET MARRIED.
Congratulations you made it here. These inspired words will liberate you and set you on the marital path you have desired for so long. Most of the time, the lack luster, care free attitude of ladies has blinded their eyes from the marriage opportunities God placed before them.
This piece is not to blame you. Our God is rich in mercy and His mercy will prevail over any judgment in your life in Jesus name. Before you continue, establish in your heart that God wants you to get married, no matter the population statistics regarding the ratio of men to women, been taunted around by many people all over the world.
Genesis 2:21-23 KJV says:
And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
It is God’s intention that whosoever desires anything, including to get married, should get their heart’s desire.
According to Mark 11:24-Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Prayer is a veritable instrument for change in life. Over the week you will be receiving a series of powerful prayer points that will bring your desire to get married to pass. Just stay glued to this corner.
PRAYER POINT 1:
Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.
And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts. KJV
::Every evil plot against my marital destiny is rebuked in the name of jesus.
::Father, only the right person will locate me, time wasters are far from me in the name of jesus.
I am a delightful person with a delightful personality. Every person that comes in contact with me notices the glory of God upon my character and in my life. God is directing the right person to me and our relationship is growing lovingly into marriage. To the praise of God, I did not experience any disappointment anymore.
See you tomorrow.
These prayer points are designed for those who love God and want His will in marriage.
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.
1. Thank God because He alone is the perfect matchmaker
2. Lord, release the man/woman you have preordained as my spouse in Jesus’ name.
3. Lord, cause it to happen that the divine match will come forth soon in the name of Jesus.
4. Lord, let my spouse be a person who loves You wholeheartedly in the name of Jesus.
5. Lord, establish our home according to the scriptures in Jesus name (read Ephesians 5:20-28).
6. Father, let all satanic barriers keeping us from meeting be dissolved in Jesus’ name.
7. Lord, send forth your warring angels to battle and release my spouse wherever s/he is in the name of Jesus.
8. Lord, I believe You have created me for a special person; bring it to pass in the name of Jesus.
9. I now call him/her out of obscurity into my life in Jesus’ name.
10. I reject the provision of counterfeit spouse by the enemy in the name of Jesus.
11. I cut off the flow of any inherited marital problems into my life in the mighty name of Jesus (pray this one 7 times… aggressively)
12. O Lord, let the spirit of patience reign in my life until the right person comes in the name of Jesus.
13. (Please pray this one with all your strength for at least 5 minutes)
Father, in the name of Jesus, just as Abraham sent his servant to find his son Isaac a wife, send the Holy Spirit to bring my future partner to me.
14. Thank the Lord for the answer.

PRAYER FOR SINGLE WOMEN
Father in the name of Jesus Christ, I come boldly before Your throne of grace confessing Your Word over my life as a single Christian.
I pray that You would help me to live a Godly life as a single Christian – a life that is holy, sanctified and set aside for the Master’s use, and prepared for Your good work.
I confess Your word, that as a single Christian, my life is crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live; yet it’s not I that live, but it’s Christ that lives in and through me; and the life which I now live in the flesh as a single Christian, I live it by faith, power and strength of the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me.
Father, You said that You would not leave us alone, but You promised to send us the Comforter. I pray therefore, that You would fellowship with me daily through the Comforter of the Holy Spirit.
I pray that while I am single, may You be the One to whom I am married. Lord, when I get lonely, may You, through the Holy Spirit, be the One who comforts my heart. May You be unto me as a close friend that sticks closer than any brother. When I need someone to talk to, may I also find comfort, as well as pleasure in talking to You. And as I talk to You, may You speak continually back to my heart, and may You be my daily companion who keeps me company, as You walk with me each and everyday.
I pray that You would give me Godly friends and acquaintances that will be an encouragement to me to live for, love and serve You with all of my heart, soul, strength, and might. And, keep me away from those who would draw my heart away from You and draw me into idleness, worldliness, carnalness or ungodly situations or relationships.
Your Word says that You are able to keep me from falling and present me faultless with exceeding great joy. I pray, therefore, that You would help me to keep watch of the eveil one in my life. Father, as a single Christian, help me not to be drawn or lured into sexual temptation, and keep me from falling into fornication, adultery or any other sexual sin, immorality or perversion.
By the power and strength of the Holy Spirit, I pray that You would also keep me from each and every satanic spirit of seduction. May You help me to flee youthful lust, keep me from compromising situations, and help me to avoide the very appearance of evil.
Father, help me to not allow the devil to confom my mind to see the single Christian life as one that is broing, incomplete or unfulfilling. I pray that through Christ Jesus, You help me to see my life as joyous, exciting and fully complete. I pray that You would fill every empty and lonely place of my heart with excitement in You and Your work. And may You always be the center of my joy, as You strengthen and renew my heart in You each and every day.
I pray that You would help me to be continually occupied doing Your work and Your will. Help me not to allow my mind to be consumed with the desire or want for a mate, but rather, consumed with You, Your Word, doing Your will, and pleasing You. And help me to keep my eyes, as well as my heart and mind stayed upon You.
Now Father, i thank You that my heart safely rests in You, Your provisions and Your loving arms of care. And may You continually be all of my fulfillmentm, my desire and completeness. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, AMEN.
