I have been praying to You since long time to get a good husband. Please forgive my sins and grant me a good husband and a happy family life.
Jesus, You know my heart’s deepest wishes – I want to get a man who loves You truly and have You are priority, who will be a good father to our children, who is educated more than me, career wise in a position above me and also financially stable. He should be ready to help others and not too much oriented towards money.
Please make us meet and get married soon. Please help my parents to see that and be happy and peaceful.

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.

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.
- 1 First, rest assured that God’s Word does promise you a spouse of your own if you want one.
- 2 Next, I made you a Biblical prayer guide for a husband or wife–a prayer guide for the spouse God has for you.
- 3 If you need some Scriptures to help build your faith for a spouse, meditate on these verses:
- 4 Are you ready to pray in your spouse? If so, use this sample prayer to find a husband or wife.
- 5 Father God, I come before You in Jesus’ name.
- 6 So Papa God, in Jesus’ name, I present Your own Word back to You.
- 7 Father God, in Jesus’ name, I lift my spouse up to you.
- 8 Abba Father, please help us both to walk holy while we wait for each other.
- 9 Father, help my spouse and I to avoid even the appearance of evil.
- 10 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.
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! 🙂
Next, I made you a Biblical prayer guide for a husband or wife–a prayer guide for the spouse God has for you.

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).
