A Relationship Made And Blessed By God
My father, you know me above all else, you created me and you knew me in my mother’s womb. You know me by name and nature, you have created me uniquely and I know that I am special. Bless our union, oh Lord.
God, I have made mistakes when it came to love. I have loved the wrong person and I have been hurt. I have placed my trust in my own judgment instead of looking to you, who is the author and finisher of my faith.
You created man (Adam), then you created woman (Eve) for him and you said it was good. This time, God, I want you to look at my relationship and say it is good.
Ephesians 5:23,24,32 For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands. This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.
Be In Union With God’s Will For My Life
Lord, you have compared your relationship with the church as a marriage, that says to me that marrying the right person is important and, God, I would rather be in your perfect will for my life than your permissive one.
I want someone who loves you above all else, who would serve as the high priest in our home, who when I submit to him I would not be led astray or taken advantage of. I want someone who hungers and thirsts after you, who is led by your spirit.

Know My Value!
I know my value in Your eyes, I know that I am a rarity and treasured by you. I know your plans for my life are amazing.
I can see your hand every day orchestrating me. That is why I look to you and not to the world for love. In you, I am a complete being.
Ephesians 5:28-29 In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as they love their own bodies. For a man who loves his wife actually shows love for himself. No one hates his own body but feeds and cares for it, just as Christ cares for the church. And we are members of his body.
A Union Solely Based On God
Father, you died so that I can live. You hung on that cross with me in mind and today I pray that you bring someone my way who will love me that way.
You will give them that love and devotion that I would be able to return. I pray against all works of the enemy all distractions that may come along.
Father, let me not look and wonder. But, when I get to know that person, let me just know that is the one you ordained and set apart for me.
Let him also know, Oh Lord, that I am here for him. Let us be perfect on all accounts for each other, like Rebekah was for Isaac and Ruth was for Boaz.
Grant me wisdom to be a support to his anointing, as he would be to mine. Let him be my guide and you be our light. Let our relationship be solely based on you. You be the foundation in our union, you be the covering and you be our all in all.

Prayer for Mutual Respect and Honor
Oh Lord, in my relationships, whether familial, romantic, or platonic, I desire to cultivate an atmosphere of mutual respect and honor. Guide me to value and esteem others highly, recognizing their worth as individuals created in Your image.
Help me to treat others with the dignity and respect they deserve, setting aside selfish ambitions and vain conceits. In my interactions, let me be guided by the principle of doing to others as I would have them do to me.
May my actions and words uplift and encourage, never demeaning or belittling. Let the respect I show be a testament to Your love and a reflection of Your heart for Your people.
Philippians 2:3-4 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

Prayer for Understanding and Patience in Relationships
Heavenly Father, as I navigate the complexities of my relationships, I seek Your wisdom and guidance. In moments of misunderstanding or frustration, grant me the patience and understanding necessary to foster peace and harmony.
Help me to listen with empathy, to speak with kindness, and to act with love, reflecting Your grace in my interactions with others.
I pray for the ability to see things from others’ perspectives, to acknowledge their feelings and needs, and to respond with compassion and sensitivity.
In times of conflict, remind me that patience and understanding are keys to resolution and harmony. Let my words be seasoned with grace, and let my actions demonstrate the love of Christ.
James 1:19-20 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.
Colossians 3:12-13 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
