6 Prayers for Singles Who Want to be Married

God is the author of the sacred institution of marriage. It therefore makes much sense as a single to seek the face of God in the choice of a life partner.

1. Waiting on the Lord Prayer

Dear Father, Your word says that we must wait on You and be of good courage. So, Father, we pray right now for singles who want to be married. I ask, Lord, that You will grant grace and mercy to all single women and men who have a desire for marriage. I pray that You will give them the desires of their heart. Father, we commit their ways to You and trust that You will provide a wife/husband in Your perfect time. Amen.

2. Finding a Soulmate Wife Prayer

Dear Father, Your word said it is not good that man should be alone and that You would make him a helper comparable to him. Dear Lord, I pray that You will supply every man with a good wife who will be his soulmate. Father, I pray that You will help men to find wives because You said that “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.” We declare favor to every single man and woman, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

3. One Flesh Prayer

Oh Lord, Your word says that a man will leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife and they shall become one flesh. We pray, almighty God, for the longing desire of single men and women who want to be married. God, we pray for men to be mature men of God, who are willing to take on the spiritual leadership of the home. Lord, I pray that You help single women to be patient in waiting for the right Christian man to come along. This we ask in Your holy name, Amen.

4. Your Will for My Spouse Prayer

Dear Lord, I thank You because You are the perfect matchmaker. I pray, Lord Jesus, that you will release the right man/women as my husband/wife, in Jesus’ name. I pray that any force of darkness that is trying to stop us from meeting will be crushed. I reject any potential spouse who does not worship You as their one true God. I declare that Your will shall be done in my life. Amen.

5. Rock Solid Future Marriage Prayer

Dear Lord, I thank You for holy gift of matrimony that comes from You. Jesus, I know that Satan is trying to destroy marriages and relationships all over the earth, but I pray that just as Abraham sent his servant to find a wife for Isaac, Your Holy Spirit will help me to find a husband/wife to be with for the rest of my life. I stand against the spirit of destruction, that wants to destroy my marriage before it has even begun. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

6. Avoiding Temptation Prayer

Heavenly Father, You said whatever I ask, it shall be given. You said to seek, and I shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. Father, I am asking, seeking and knocking for Your answer in my life for a husband/wife. Lord, while I patiently wait, help me not to fall into sexual temptation, but help me keep my eyes fixed on You because the enemy is like a roaring lion seeking someone to devour. So, Father, by Your Holy Spirit, help me to remain pure and holy, trusting that my heart’s desire will be answered quickly. Amen.
