Prayers for a better future

Dear God I pray to you for help in my search for employemnt and happiness.

Please help me find a path that will provide me a future that is full of love and happiness and also one that is financially stable, so I may take care of the ones I love.

I pray to you that I may be forgiven for all the wrongs I have done in the past and pray that you can provide me the light to see what I need to do to correct my mistakes.

I stand before you a humble man, who is just going through the motions of everyday life, with no clue as to when things will get better.

I know that any path you guide me to will be the right one, I just ask that you help me see what direction I need to take to fufill your wishes.

Please God forgive me for all my sins and bless me with the knowledge and ability to make a difference.

Please help anyone else who is desperate and looking for help as I am.

I love you,

Welcome to our 14 day prayer journey for preparing to be a future wife! This journey will be so fun and beautiful. Christy, Sarah, Anna, and I (Lisa) want to encourage and pray for you while you are on your own personal journey as a Christian girl or woman on your way to your future life as a godly wife…

We ask that if you choose to join this journey, that you as the reader will follow these 5 steps while doing this prayer journey for the next 2 weeks:

Step 1.There are 14 payers for you to pray for your future as a wife for 14 days.

Step 2.We want you as the reader, to read it,

Step 3.Pray it, and

Step 4. Write/or pray it in your own words.

Step 5. Save them in a special box for after you are married and need to be reminded of what you envisioned for your future as a wife.

It’s good to be in prayer for our character development and transition into marriage. I don’t know if you or I are called to be single all of our lives, but I feel that this is a thing that I should be in prayer about. Recently, we did a 2 week journey called “Prayers for our Future Husbands” it seemed only fitting that we pray for ourselves as future wives as well. A young woman commented on the page and suggested that we also pray those prayers for ourselves as future wives as well, which actually sparked the idea for this journey!

We do not pray selfishly for ourselves during the next 2 weeks, but with a godly mindset, asking fervently for help from God to become the women he designed us to be, praying to become the help-meets that He has in mind for our future beloveds. After the 14 day prayer journey, we do not need to stop praying for our lives as future wives; we can continue every day, asking God to help us become the women that our future husbands need by their sides.
We are so excited to get started! We hope to see you join us. Thank you for your support and love. God bless!

Let’s Get Started!

prayers for a better future

Day 1

Dear Lord, I know that I am your daughter. You are the prefect Father and I could not ask for a better protector! I know that you have picked out the man that you want me to marry. You know his name, what he looks like, how he acts, his personality, his past and future flaws, and you are saving me for him. I know he will not be perfect and I know that I am not perfect. But I know that you are molding me into the kind of woman that my future husband needs.

Lord, I ask that you build in me the kind of characteristics that will support my husband and his ambitions and dreams. Help me to learn how to come alongside of him with a servants heart and with wisdom in how to be his right hand. I want to encourage bless, serve and obey my future husband in all matters. Please prepare me and equip me for this task while I am not yet married Jesus.

Day 3

Dear God, help me to put my trust in you and wait for you to bring my future husband to me in your perfect timing. Help me not to be anxious or worried about when that time will be but to rest and wait on you. Thank you that you have had this man picked out for me before I was even born. Thank you for making him for me.

Keep my heart pure and safe in your care so that I will be ready to marry him whenever you choose to bring him along. I love you Jesus. Thank you. Amen

Day 5

Lord Jesus, sometimes I feel so inadequate and unready to be a bride. I think of marriage as a vast and distant lifestyle that I’ve never before trod. I am scared of what might or might not happen. Give me faith Jesus. Help me to trust that you will work all things together for good. While I am single and waiting please train and prepare me for the challenges ahead. Help me to learn in Wisdom and Love. Give me the strength that my husband will need from me.

I know that marriage is a beautiful covenant between my future husband and You and I. Please show me areas in which I can grow before I am married. Help me to learn submission and honor, humility and grace, respect and admiration, love and selflessness. Gift me with the amount of time needed to learn each of these qualities so that I will be ready to bless my future beloved.

Thank you for your patient training Jesus. Thank you for the opportunity to fall in love with the man you have chosen to be my husband. Bless our future together as man and wife. I love you Lord! Amen.

Day 6

Lord, please teach me to be an encourager. Let me always build up others and never tear them down. Give me a desire to encourage my husband. Give me words of wisdom and peace to build him up with. Help me to encourage his dreams and plans.

Let us work as a team to build great things for your kingdom. Teach me not to fall into the pattern of criticism or negativity. Help my word to draw my future husband closer to you. Help me to encourage him to walk in Your ways in all things. Amen!

Day 7

Dear Jesus, please help me to be prepared to go with my future husband and to follow without worry or questioning to wherever you may lead him and whatever you may have him to do.

Whether he’s a rancher, a pastor, a soldier, a missionary or anything else you choose for him to do, please prepare me to be a godly help-meet for him so that I can and encourage, and bless him as he follows wherever you may lead him. Thank you Jesus, Amen.

Day 8

Dear God, I pray that you will give me patience and an attitude of grace. Please help me overlook offenses and respond graciously to conflict. Please help me to develop this pattern now rather than later. When others are bothering me, when situations are bothering me, and when I am even bothering myself, please remind me to take it all to you. Please remind me to talk with you first before confronting things.

Grant me discernment and understanding for the situations I don’t know how to confront. Thank you so much for the grace you’ve shown me, and for being the perfect model of forgiveness and love. Please help me to keep my focus always on you. Amen.

Day 9

Dear Lord, I want to unconditionally love my husband, with a full heart! I want to be his best friend, his helpful assistant, his endearing wife, and his adoring fan. I wish that everyday would be like spending a day in heaven on earth. I wish the honeymoon would last till we were old and frail. And I wish that our love for one another would not age and shrivel as our bodies do, but that it would stay young and passionate.

But Lord, I know that these are only wishes. I know that in marriage, just as in life, there will be struggles to face, battles to overcome, and tests that will need to be passed. I pray that you would strengthen my faith while I am young, Jesus. Equip me with the armor needed to go to battle and to have victory! Bless me with patience and endurance, Lord. I know that you will be by my side no matter what. When a trial comes to disrupt our marriage I pray that you would give me the understanding and wisdom that it will take to bear through it.

Thank you for teaching me Lord. Give me a spirit of humility and teach-ability as I prepare for a lifelong relationship with the husband you have chosen for me. I love you Lord! Amen.

Day 10

Lord Jesus, I want to be a Titus 2 and Proverbs 31 homemaker for my future husband. I want him to be able to walk in the door of our little home after a hard day of work and be blessed and comforted by the simple pleasures that come from me being a keeper of the home!

Help me to learn how to budget our money wisely, to cook and clean well, to teach our children and bring them up in the ways of the Lord, to garden, to bake, to manage the household and support my husband and his business. Help me to learn and practice these things at home, before I am married, so that I am prepared to bless and serve my husband after my wedding. Thank you for your word and scriptures that lovingly guide me in the ways to be a good help-meet. Amen.

Day 11

Father, please help me to start developing healthy habits in every area of my life. Help me to physically develop good eating, exercising, and grooming habits. Teach me how to create time habits that will carry over to help my future husband. Help me to work when I should work, but also generate good habits of rest and recreation.

Let me devote constant time to prayer and Bible study so that I can grow in your grace. Show me the areas of my life that lack self-control, and then purge them from me. Let any bad habits or selfish lifestyle patterns be removed from me.

Help me to learn how to help my future husband order our whole life to meet your priorities and not the priorities of the world. Let me exhibit moderation and self control in every area of my life so that I can best serve you and help my husband. Amen!

Day 12

Lord Jesus, when I say “I do,” at my wedding I know that I am committing to a life of reverence and respect for my husband. Help me to recognize my husband as the leading role model in my life. Help me choose words that will only encourage him and enrich him in his walk with you, Lord.

Help me not feel that I will be leading an independent lifestyle after I am married but that I am to come under and a long side the leadership that you have given my husband as the head of our family. Help me to love and honor him, Jesus. I pray that we would always find time together as a couple, to read and pray. Let us be grounded in your Word as a married couple ought.

Thank you for giving us a model of the marriage union in your Word that we can follow and strive to exemplify. I love you, Lord! Amen.

Day 13

Dear Jesus, please help me to love my future husband my whole life long unselfishly and unconditionally. May I honor and respect, bless and encourage him, and be in love only with him. May he always be my prince and my hero in my eyes.

Please help our marriage to be strong and for both of us to stay focused on worshiping and loving you. Even when things get hard or difficult in life please don’t let me ever give up on my marriage to him but to see it through and trust you. I love you Jesus. Amen.

Day 14

Lord Jesus, I pray that you would bless my future marriage with strength. Make us strong against the popular culture that has consumed the 21st century. Help my husband and I to be strong enough to say “no” to the world and “yes” to eternity in heaven with You! I pray that You would bless us with a wild love for one another so that we could face the world together.

Help us be a model of the Ephesians 5 marriage. Help us be good examples to our children so that they might want to do the same in their marriage and carry on the torch of un-defiled marriage union into the future generation. Let us love you and no other, Jesus.

I pray that as a future wife, I would have a desire to love you more than anyone, Lord. Ground me in Your Word of Truth and help me to fix my eyes on you. Give me a pure heart, a devoted mind, and a quiet soul. Teach me how to honor and submit to my husband in all areas of life. Thank you, Jesus! I love you. Amen.

Here are three prayers I hope you can use in praying for a future spouse.

Seeking You First

Righteous Father,

You know that it’s not good for us to be alone and that we need one another for fellowship and companionship so I am praying now for you to send to me a godly spouse so that we can bring up godly children for Your glory but please help me to focus on seeking You and Your kingdom first as I know you’ll add the other things I need.  Help me to be patient and not make any quick decisions and to seek godly counsel if I am blessed with a potential mate.  Help me to know what to look for in a spouse but first, how to make sure that I am living a godly life for You and that I would be a blessing to the person who I might marry.  Instead of finding the right person, help me to be the right person for someone to marry and so please help me to become who You want me to be and not focus so much on how someone else should be that comes into my life.  I know that You are sovereign over all things in my life so let me yield my own life to that of being a new creation in Christ (2 Cor 5:17) and to grow in grace, knowledge, and holiness so that my life is pleasing to You and in the Mighty Name of Jesus’ I pray, amen.

Strengthen my Faith

Great God in heaven,

sometimes it feels hopeless for me to ever find a godly mate.  Please help me to be strengthened at times when my faith is weak and when I grow despondent as if nothing will ever change.  Help me to see with the eyes of faith and not of the flesh and to trust in You for all that is to happen in my life.  You know my heart and how I feel and only You can help me when I feel down.  You alone can lift me up when I feel broken.  You are the God of hope for the hopeless so restore my hope in a future that You have planned for me and then do what I am supposed to do in my life so that, if You are willing, You might send someone into my life that I can have a relationship that honors you and glorifies You so that my future spouse and I can live as You designed us to live; to love one another and to serve one another in a way that You sent Your Son to come and give His life for us so that we could be redeemed.  I admit my doubts, my fears, and my restlessness in seeking a godly mate and so help me to trust in You alone for the future that You hold for me and in the holy name of Jesus Christ  I pray, amen.

For Your Glory

If I do anything Father,

let it be for Your glory and that is why I am praying to You for a godly future spouse or one I am already engaged with.  Perhaps it’s someone I already know or someone who’s in my church.  Please help me to know and be convinced in my heart that this person is the spouse that would have me to be with for life and for them to be a good match for me so that we might bring up godly children for Your glory but to focus on myself too so that I can become the person who someone would want to marry. Who else but You God knows what lies in my future and You alone know what is best for me; better than I do.  I commit my life to You and put in Your sovereign hands a future that I cannot see but one that You already know.  This is where I want to glorify You and to give You praise and honor and glory for all that is to come in my life and in the precious name of the Savior, Jesus Christ the Lord, amen.


There might be nothing harder for a man or woman to do than to live a life of being alone. So I will pray right now for you and for all those oh Lord God that are seeking a mate that they find the right person for them and for them to look at the heart and not at the outside for what is inside is of supreme importance and more lasting in value than what we see with our eyes.  I do pray for those reading this that they might be blessed with a godly mate to live in holy matrimony and to bring glory to Your name for You alone are worthy of all honor, praise, and glory and that is my prayer for all who read this and in Jesus’ most glorious name I pray, amen.

O Jesus, lover of the young, the dearest Friend I have, in all confidence I open my heart to You to beg Your light and assistance in the important task of planning my future. Give me the light of Your grace, that I may decide wisely concerning the person who is to be my partner through life. Dearest Jesus, send me such a one whom in Your divine wisdom You judge best suited to be united with me in marriage. May her/his character reflect some of the traits of Your own Sacred Heart. May s/he be upright, loyal, pure, sincere and noble, so that with united efforts and with pure and unselfish love we both may strive to perfect ourselves in soul and body, as well as the children it may please You to entrust to our care. Bless our friendship before marriage, that sin may have no part in it. May our mutual love bind us so closely, that our future home may ever be most like Your own at Nazareth.

O Mary Immaculate, sweet Mother of the young, to your special care I entrust the decision I am to make as to my future wife/husband. You are my guiding Star! Direct me to the person with whom I can best cooperate in doing God’s Holy Will, with whom I can live in peace, love and harmony in this life, and attain to eternal joys in the next.
