Prayer For A Life Partner

Lord, I pray for a woman of God, beautiful in heart, mind and soul. May she be faithful, loyal, sincere and noble in her thoughts and deeds.

Grant her patience. Let her be filled with love, humility and understanding for me and the family we will commit.

Give me wisdom to make and keep her happy and feeling protected. May she be one fearful in Your sight and be a woman faithful to prayer, praise and worship for You our God.

Let her heart be not worried or afraid of her past which is history and may her present self be in Your way of life. May she be devoted to prayer, family life and know the values of a family of God.

Eternal father, you are the God that knows all things. Nothing is impossible for you who made heaven and earth. You have prepared everything and nothing takes you by surprise. Eternal Father, you have the master plan of my life. In gratitude for the gift of life, I humbly ask in the name of your son Jesus that you take me to my life partner.

According to your word, you created Eve and brought her to Adam. Since you have already prepared someone for me, I pray that you bring us together. I need your grace to make the correct choice in marriage. Guide my feet towards my life partner. As from today, let every step I take move towards your divine plan for me. Grant me the eyes to see him/her and the courage to accept the one you prepared.

Father, nothing is too messy for you to clean up. You are the only one who writes straight on a crooked line. Therefore, I humbly ask that you pardon me if peradventure I lost him/her due to pride or sin. You can still make another way from me. I believe and trust in you my God.

Above all, may I be close to you dear Father. Be the center of my life. May your child never be separated from you. If I remain in you, I shall receive all I need (including the gift of a life partner).

Thank you father for granting this request. I make this prayer through your son our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.

Please pray for me to be blessed with a partner in life. To be able to meet the right person whom I can share my life with. This is difficult for me after a few failed relationships. Therefore I pray for divine help to finally and speedily meet unconditional love, compatibility, trust and loyalty.

Pray for me so that the first steps in starting and building a loving relationship be initiated. Give me the opportunity to serve God by serving a wife n family throughout my life.

This is what I really want in life, filled with meaning and love. Please pray that it will be granted speedily for I have been searching for love for a long time. Amen.

"If we ask anything according to God's will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the request which we have asked from him."1

"Please help me," a Daily Encounter reader asks. "Is it okay to ask God to send me a special someone/companion to share my life? And how will I know that God has sent this person?"

You can ask God for every desire of your heart as long as it is in harmony with his will. He hears all sincere prayers and answers themnot always in the way we want them to be answered, but always in the way that is best for us.

However, to be attracted to and find a healthy, mature adult we need to be a healthy mature adult our self. So the key is learning to pray the right prayer; rather than asking God to send you or lead you to the right partner, you need to ask God first and foremost to help you become the right partner.

The fact is that only healthy, happy, mature people find healthy, happy, and mature partners. If an immature, unhealthy, self-centered person asks God for a life partner, will God lead them to a healthy and mature person? Not likely. And yet I see people expecting God to do this sort of thing all the time.

In our Western culture at least, romantically we are basically attracted to a partner where our neuroses (unresolved personal issues) mesh and we call it love or falling in love. Often it's pure passion and/or need. This can lead to real love, but the problem with falling in love is that once the passion subsides, if we don't have anything deeper, instead of growing in love we'll fall out of love.

So the important way to pray is to ask God to help you grow in maturity and that he will then lead you to a healthy, mature person. Furthermore, to grow in maturity takes strong commitment and hard work on our part. There's no such thing as instant maturity.

And how will you know this person you want to marry is God's choice? First, realize that the choice is yours. God will give you wisdom and direction if you truly want it, but he won't make your choices for you. That's your responsibility because God isn't codependent. And how will you know this person and you are right or best for each other? To discover this I urge couples to seek not only God's direction in prayer, but also wise competent Christian counseling where, besides intense counseling, both partners are given psychological tests before they ever say, "I do." This is using your head as well as your heart in one of life's most important and critical decisions.

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, please lead me by your Holy Spirit to see any areas of immaturity in my life that I need to resolve. Help me to find the help I need to overcome any such issues. And then please give me wisdom and direction in finding a healthy and mature life partner (and/or good friends). Furthermore, teach me to always pray the right prayers, ones that are based on truth and reality, and are in harmony with your will. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus' name, amen."

Almighty God, I pray that you will help me search for a life partner. You know the inner longings of my heart and the loneliness that I face each day. When I find the right partner, help them to recognize me as their soulmate. If it is your will, guide me to the person you have chosen for me. Give me the wisdom to recognize this person and the integrity to have a strong relationship. When there are problems, guide me to make the right choices and become a strong, steadfast partner for them. Amen.

Lord, I ask that you guide me as I search for the right partner in life. I know that you have a plan for my life, so please help me be patient for the right person. As I wait, help me to become a responsible, capable person so that I may one day be a good, God-fearing partner. I know that I must be deserving of the right partner, so help me to learn from my shortcomings and improve myself so that I will be ready. As I grow deeper in my love for you, guide me toward finding love in someone else as well. Amen.

Lord, You said that it is not good for man to be alone. We ask You to listen to the hearts looking for a life partner. Put their yearning for marriage in the right perspective. Lead them to the one You choose and reveal Your plans for them so that they prepare themselves better. Lord, teach and guide them to seek You first and to learn to give love more than expecting to receive it.

Help them to remember that whatever journey their life leads them on, You are always present, always offering companionship, and always filling their deepest need.

Almighty Father, We pray for all those waiting and searching for life partners. You know the deep longings of their hearts and You know what is best for them in life. Lord, help them as they desire a good companion in life. If it is Your will, guide them Lord, to the partner You have chosen for them. Give them the wisdom and direct them in their pursuit to choose the right person.

Everyone deserves a loving and God-fearing partner, for a happy life. We ask You to remove all obstacles in their way and perfect everything for them.
