Faithful Father

You know the desire of my heart is to find a man/woman who loves you. I pray that you will move me out of the way so that you can work things out in my life. You know I tend to be impatient at times. I want to be 100% in your will for this life-changing event. I come to you asking for your guidance and strength as I wait for you to show me the perfect mate. It can be difficult to be patient and trust in your perfect timing, but I know that you have a plan for my life and will bring the right person into my life at the right time.

As I wait, Lord, prepare my heart for what you have for me. I commit to studying scripture to learn more and more about what it means to be a fully devoted spouse to the gift you have for me. I commit to allowing you to continue molding me into the person fully devoted to you and my spouse.

Fill me with your peace and joy as I wait, and help me remember that you are always with me, even when I feel most alone. I trust in your love and wisdom and know you will bring the perfect person into my life when the time is right.

Prayer to Be Emotionally Healed From Past Relationships:

Psalm 147:3 “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”

Dear Lord,

As I patiently wait for the spouse you have planned for me, I want to use this season of my life to become more emotionally mature. You know I have experienced failed relationships that have created some deep wounds. I praise you in that person wasn’t the one you had for me. I come before you today to ask for emotional healing from the pain and hurt of those relationships. I have been wounded and broken by the actions and words of others, and I am struggling to find peace and joy in my life. I realize I won’t be ready for your gift until these wounds are healed.

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Help me release the pain and hurt I am carrying and forgive those who have hurt me. Give me the strength to let go of any bitterness, anger, or resentment I may be holding onto.

Please heal my heart and emotions, and fill me with your love and grace through the power of the Holy Spirit. Help me to see myself as you see me and to know that I am worthy of love and respect. Embed in my heart I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Guide me as I move forward in my life, and give me the wisdom to make healthy choices in relationships. May I learn from past mistakes and be open to the opportunities you have for me in the future. Also, prepare me emotionally to give of myself wholly to the spouse you have chosen for me. I have faith that my future is bright.

I thank you for your unfailing love and grace and trust in your promise to heal and restore me.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Psalm 51:10 “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.”

Prayer to Stay Pure as I Wait for My Spouse:

Romans 13:14 “But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.”

Dear Lord,

It seems at every turn in our culture, there is some temptation that doesn’t honor your principles. I come before you today with a humble, contrite heart, asking for your guidance and protection as I wait for my future spouse. I pray that you will give me the strength to remain pure in mind, body, and spirit during this season of waiting.

Help me resist any temptation that may come my way and keep my eyes fixed on you, knowing you have a perfect plan for my life. Fill me with your Holy Spirit, and grant me the wisdom and discernment to make wise choices that honor you. Lord, I want to honor you as I focus on my body being the temple of the Holy Spirit. I will guard my mind from temptations that can cause discouragement or sin. I will guard my heart against settling for a relationship that isn’t in your plan. I will guard my body to remain sexually pure for my future spouse.

Ephesians 5:3 “But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints.”

Lord, I pray that you will prepare my heart and the heart of my future spouse for the day when we meet. I believe that the spouse you have for me has made this commitment, also. I trust that you will bring the right person into my life at the right time and that together we will be able to serve you and bring glory to your name. Until then, I pray that you would help me to live each day in a way that brings honor to you and that I would find my joy and fulfillment in you alone.

Thank you for your unfailing love and faithfulness and for our hope in Christ. May your peace and presence always be with me as I wait for your chosen one.

In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

2 Timothy 2:22 “So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.”
