Prayer for Marriage, for a God-Chosen Life Partner

Prayer for Marriage, for a God-Chosen Life Partner

I wrote this prayer for all those who are alone and looking for a suitable life partner. Many have asked for prayers concerning marriage. I pray that this year, your wishes and dreams are fulfilled by God Almighty as we lift up our every desire daily, through Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Prayer: Searching for a life partner

Almighty Father, We pray for all those waiting and searching for life partners. You know the deep longings of their hearts and You know what is best for them in life. Lord, help them as they desire a good companion in life.

If it is Your will, guide them Lord, to the partner You have chosen for them. Give them the wisdom and direct them in their pursuit to choose the right person.

Everyone deserves a loving and God-fearing partner, for a happy life. We ask You to remove all obstacles in their way and perfect everything for them.

Guide them to the right person

Lord, You said that it is not good for man to be alone. We ask You to listen to the hearts looking for a life partner. Put their yearning for marriage in the right perspective. Lead them to the one You choose and reveal Your plans for them so that they prepare themselves better.

Lord, teach and guide them to seek You first and to learn to give love more than expecting to receive it. Help them to remember that whatever journey their life leads them on, You are always present, always offering companionship, and always filling their deepest need.

Fill them with love and understanding

At all times, may they observe quiet prayer-time and turn to You in all joy and afflictions. May each of them address their areas of weaknesses and be strengthened in Your love and light.

We pray that understanding and loving each other be their utmost desire and may they believe in a marriage that ends only when death do they part.

Almighty Father, We pray for all those waiting and searching for life partners. Click To Tweet

Prayer for the man searching for a wife

Lord, I pray for a woman of God, beautiful in heart, mind and soul. May she be faithful, loyal, sincere and noble in her thoughts and deeds. Grant her patience. Let her be filled with love, humility and understanding for me and the family we will commit. Give me wisdom to make and keep her happy and feeling protected. May she be one fearful in Your sight and be a woman faithful to prayer, praise and worship for You our God.

Let her heart be not worried or afraid of her past which is history and may her present self be in Your way of life. May she be devoted to prayer, family life and know the values of a family of God.

Peter 3:7 “You husbands in the same way, live with your wives in an understanding way, as with someone weaker, since she is a woman. And show her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered”

Personal Prayer:

Lord, help me assure my woman that I am responsible and able to provide for her needs. Help me prove that I am a gentleman and God-fearing and would be able to take care of her and protect her in all aspects of life, in good times and in bad.

May I daily make amends in all my shortcomings and make myself ready to give myself wholly and truly to a relationship.

May I grow in deeper love for You, my God, which will allow me to grow deeper in my relationship with her. Amen.



Prayer by the woman for a husband

Lord, I pray for a God fearing, humble, gentle, faithful and loving man. May he be one filled with respect for women and protect them in all harm, trouble and afflictions. May You come first in his life and may he be one who leads a family to God.

Lord, I am willing to accept a man despite whatever his past is. May he come fully done away with his old bad habits. May His past be history as we take each other from the day we come together in a relationship.

In the same way, I pray Lord that he too will not see the old me but as someone good and renewed in Your hope and blessings. May my past never be a hindrance to living my present life as a wife as I make amends to my old self and give myself wholly and truly to him.

Colossians 3:18 “Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord”

Help me understand that You Lord are the Godhead of the family and my man, the head of the household. Help me to submit myself truly and wholly to him in my family life. May I give him due respect as head of the family. I commit myself to understanding and helping him in all aspects of life as he provides for the family.

May You Lord, be first and part of every decision and promises we make as husband and wife. Click To Tweet

Oh Lord and our God, be first and foremost in all decisions and promises we make as husband and wife. We pray this prayer and lift up our heartfelt desires in the blessed name of Jesus, Amen.

  • I am 45 yrs old and 6 yrs separated my ex already got married to another woman. Being alone is not easy…so pls lord god send me a good man who accept me who i am and can be a life time partner…in jesus name…amen

  • How do you know you are with the right woman after you have done everything to make it work, put her in a good home, buy her a brand new 2017 camry, pay most of the house bills shower her with gifts but she’s always angry bitter, arguing every week, complains about her job, her family, my family, she believes she should have been married to a medical doctor, she want every good thing as long as she’s not paying for it. But she a good person on her best day. I’m thinking she’s not my missing rib. I wanna walk away as soon as my lease expires. What’s your advice????

    • Walk away and she will realize what she had. Give her two months of silence. Tell her you are leaving and let her know why.

      And when you leave, give her no communication, no home visits, just disappear. I promise you she will stop complaining about everything. Give her to God for two months, she will change….

    • Miko, I’m sorry for what you are going thru. People are broken at times and perhaps yes she is not your missing rib but you had to serve a purpose in her life. Remember money and gifts are temporary, that does not even excite a woman of God for we know this things pass away in time. In most cases we do what we want when it comes to choosing a partner, we fail to listen to God, we listen to our bodies and desires. Stop that. So I would say, sit her down, speak to her about how u feel, she does not give you confidence and belittles you. Explain to her you as a man and what u do for her, deserve all the respect and honor. Buy her a book – The Power Of Praying (3 In 1 Collection), every woman needs this. We, as women play a big role in keeping our homes together. She needs to understand that. All the best okay.

    • Before you walk away I would advice you to Sit Her down and talk things Over, explain yourself and get to hear why sometimes she acts the way she does and how that makes you feel. Secondly, I would urge you to pray for your marriage. Be blessed.

  • I am turning to 43 (asian). hope for the miracle to be happened to meet life partner. Previously had few relationships but did not doing well. Still hoping miracle from god to me to have life partner. God is merciful. Pastors, brothers and sisters in the name of Jesus, please pray for me too during yr prayer time. God bless

  • I am a Nigerian in my late 29 year of age, pls join me to pray for a God fearing life partner and soul mate as I believe that with your prayers put together with mine God will answer us.

  • I lovingly disagree with one statement in this prayer, “Everyone needs a loving and God-fearing partner, for a happy life.” I find no such statement in Scripture. The Partner each of us needs is The Holy Spirit. Marriages between God-fearing men and women are wonderful blessings from God but are not required for a full and happy life.
    Shalom, Maurine Elisheva

    • I totally agree with you. Holy Spirit is our helper. And being God-fearing does not necessarily mean the Holy Spirit lives in you.

      • I wonder how one can be fear God without the holy Ghost. I don’t mean to start a debate the scripture here. But as far as I know, you can not do the will of God without the Spirit of God. A car can not move unless you put petrol/ gasoline/fuel. Not unless we are pretenders.


        • My fellow brothers and sisters, I wonder how one can fear God without the Holy Ghost. I don’t mean to start a debate the here, I don’t debate scriptures. But as far as I know, you can not do the will of God without the Spirit of God. A car can not move unless you put petrol/ gasoline/fuel in it. Not unless we are pretenders.

    • Lets hear testimonies when God answer the prayers made here so that others can be encouraged and know that their set time is coming.
      Has God connected you with your spouse? Share with us.
