Heavenly Father, You were the One who made us male and female and You were the One Who placed each one of us in our families. You knew us before we were even born, while we were being secretly formed in our mother’s womb.
But Lord, there are many Christian men and women that long to be married but find that the person that they so long to meet and spend their life with never seems to cross their path, and Lord it is for those believers who find themselves in this position that I am lifting up in prayer to You today.
Father, I ask that You look down in grace and mercy on all single men and women who have an inner yearning and desire to be married and yet have remained in their single status. I pray that You would look with compassion on the desires of their hearts, and bring into their life a person of Your choosing, with whom they can share their life and their future.
Father, I pray that during the time of waiting that You would guard their hearts and minds with the assurance that You know the intimate desires and needs of their hearts, and that in Your time and in Your way, You will bring into their life the person that You have been preparing for them, the one for whom You have been preparing them for as well! Pour into each heart a stillness and peace that only comes to the one that knows that their times and futures are in God’s hands, and are prepared to trust every area of their futures into His loving hands. I ask this in Jesus' name,
