Prayer Tips for Praying for Boyfriends
I love what Teresa of Avila says about prayer, “Prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God.” and that is what my first tip is…
- When it comes to using written prayers it’s important to keep your prayers real. You want to connect your heart with the Lord’s, not just recite someone else’s written prayers.
- Make these prayers personal to your boyfriend. If there is something specific that your boyfriend needs or desires. This could be about their job, health, relationships, finances, and more. Whatever the case use this information while praying for your boyfriend.
- Ask the Holy Spirit to bring things to your attention. Sometimes we don’t know what to pray for, but He does. Ask Him to show you what to pray for your boyfriend. He is faithful to speak to us if we will stop and actually listen.
- Feel free to expand on the prayers below. These are short prayers for boyfriend. You can use them as like a diving board to spring you into a longer deeper prayer time. Use them as a way to teach you how to pray for your boyfriend.
- I’ve added prayer points and Bible verses. This means you don’t even have to use these written prayers at all but just take the prayer point and use it as a guide to pray.
