8 Prayers For Singles Desiring Marriage

1 Corinthians 7:34 ‘An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord’s affairs; Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit…’ A single Christian is an asset to the Lord. When you are single it is very easy to be devoted to the things of God because you are not distracted by commitments to your body or your human partner.

That is not to say that being married displeases God. Marriage is a spiritual union between two people witnessed by family and endorsed by God. If anyone wishes to be married they must first love themselves. God wants us to be happy and enjoy the things he made for us. If we choose to marry, we must respect his laws and abide by his teachings at all times.

Prayers for singles are meant to draw them closer to their God so he can teach them their purpose and help them fulfill their dreams and goals for the future.

Being single is not a crime. However, it does not also mean that you get to do what you want with your life or your body. It is the time when you are presented with so many paths in front of you. When you are not committed to anyone, it is time to carefully look into your own self and determine what you want to do with your life.

It is a time of self-evaluation and acceptance. Knowing who you are is an important prerequisite to choosing the right relationships. God created each of us differently. Our sensitivities and sensibilities determine who we are as humans and it should determine who we chose to be close with.

Ask God to show you the way to true happiness. A lot of people have tried to be happy with the wrong partners and have failed miserably. Choosing a life partner is a very important decision. Remember that a life partner to commit to can be anything. It can be a spouse and a family, a job or a business, or simply nothing. Ask God to help you decide on your future based on who you are.

Being single is a choice for some people and should not be used as a way to attack them. The Lord loves all of us equally no matter our marital status. The devil however finds work for idle hands so we have to commit to God very well when we are not in a relationship with anyone. If you do want marriage then ask God to prepare you for the journey. A lifetime commitment takes strength and an unwavering spirit. Ask God to be your partner through it all.
