In this article we will learn how you can pray by being inspired by these prayers for a life partner and have faith to believe God for marriage. He is faithful to help us in this area.
Being a single Christian and desiring to be married is hard. I am now in my 30’s and would love to be married and start a family. But at the same time I am trusting God with all of this.
I firmly believe that we need to be proactive when looking for a spouse. We all know we won’t find a spouse while sitting at home feeding our cats. We know we need to get out and meet people. I love the story of how Derek Prince, met his wife in God is my Matchmaker.
But on a spiritual level we should also be proactive and that looks like praying for a life partner. I mention this in my article “How to pray for your future husband.” In this article my heart is to share with you some prayers that can inspire you to get before the Lord and ask Him to bring someone special into your life.
Powerful Prayers for A Life Partner
There are some keys things I want to clarify before we get to the prayers. The first is that I encourage you to let these prayer inspire you to a place that when you pray it’s personal and from your heart. I’m not a fan of just reciting someone else’s prayer. It should come from a deep place in you. So, please let them inspire you and give you the words when you feel like you have none.
Just remember there is no magical thing you can pray or Bible verse you can say that will bring you a spouse. God doesn’t work that way. There isn’t a formula. Go before God humbly and make your request known. Trust that the Lord in His perfect time will bring someone to you.
Now these prayers were written for both men and women. I will place “husband/wife” meaning husband or wife in certain places within the prayer. You will see this in other forms as well. Just wanted to make that clear if there was any confusion.
Prayer 1 – Genesis 2:18
The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” – Genesis 2:18
Heavenly Father it says in your Word that it’s not good for man to be alone. So, today I ask you Lord to bring me partner in my life. Let him/her be a suitable partner for me. That we would run the race together and bring glory to Your name. Help me to become the man/woman you have called me to be and help my future husband/wife to also walk in your ways. Thank you Lord you are working on this and that you heard my prayers. In Jesus mighty name, amen!
Prayer 2 – Psalm 37:4
Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. – Psalm 37:4
Heavenly Father, I come before you today to remind you of your Word. It says that those who delight in You shall have the desires of their heart. So, Lord today my prayer is for two things and that is that everything in me would take great delight in You. That you would draw me closer and my heart would touched by you.
And Lord my second request is that you would see the desire of my heart to me married. This desire in me is strong and I know You are faithful Lord, and I trust you will bring me a life partner who follows your ways and is after You heart. So, please bless him/her and bring him/her into my life. In Jesus name, amen!
Prayer 3 – Philippians 4:6
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. – Philippians 4:6
Heavenly Father, today I come before you and I ask for your peace to be placed in my heart and in my mind. Lord I ask that you would see my desire for a husband/wife and answer my prayer to be married and have a family. Provide for me a spouse who genuinely loves You and is hungry for you. Lord, help me to be patient in this time of waiting, but confident that you will see me through. In Jesus name, amen!
Prayer 4 – Proverbs 27:17
As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17
Heavenly Father, I want to say thank you for being my provider and for watching over me. Lord you have been faithful and I know you hear my prayers.
I ask today Lord that you would bring me my future husband/wife into my life. I pray that this person would be someone that sharpens me and that I sharpen them. That we would encourage each other in the faith and in life. That together we would be a weapon in your hand to defeat the plans of the enemy.
Lord, thank you for him/her. Bless him/her and let them be a light that shines Your truth. In Jesus mighty name amen!
Prayer 5 – Ecclesiastes 3:1
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven… – Ecclesiastes 3:1
Heavenly Father, I thank you that you will answer my prayers in Your perfect time. I trust you Lord! You know what is best for me. Lord in your perfect time bring me a husband/wife. Someone who loves You and will love me. Help me to be patience and in peace as a wait. Sometimes I struggle Lord with frustration and fear. So I lay this request at your feet and I ask that you would pour out your presence upon me and give me the grace to give this to You. In Jesus name, amen!
Like I mentioned earlier…there is no formula that will make God give you a life partner. A lot of times we want things right now when God is saying wait. Be patient and if you are struggling with patience then I encourage you to ask God for it and to spend more time with Him.
Trust me I know it’s hard! I have been waiting a long time as well. Hold on to God’s faithfulness…He is working even when you don’t see it.
I hope these prayers for a life partner has stirred your faith to pray and believe God for your promise. And I pray that God would do a quick work in your life and give you the desires of your heart for marriage and a family.
