8 Ways to Pray For Your Love Life (Or Lack Thereof!)
Love and relationships are one of the most important aspects of our lives, but we don’t often pray for them. Perhaps we’re afraid to go to God about our love lives, or perhaps we simply don’t know how to pray for love.
Prayer For Love Vs. Worry About Love
Prayer is the act of mentally handing over our problems, concerns, fears, desires, and dreams to someone who has the power to control them. Here are eight ways to prayfully hand over your problems, concerns, fears, desires, and dreams to the One who can control them.
#1: Pray that God would give you a relationship (Matthew 7:7)!
Let God know what your deepest needs and desires are in your relationship with Him. There are no limits to what we can ask God as long as our hearts are aligned with His.
#2: Pray that He would grant you patience and insight to wait for a good one (Isaiah 40:31).
Ask God to change, nourish, and fill you during this season of waiting so that you are empowered and ready to take the next steps. Waiting on God is never easy because it reminds us that we are not in charge.
#3: Pray that He would be working out anything unhealthy in your life (Jeremiah 33:8).
As you work to improve your love life, be sure to ask God to help you recognize and heal all of the things in your life that aren’t aligning with His best. Some of our baggage and sin we can recognize, and some we can’t. Seek to get to the bottom of your sins, and ask God to heal you.
#4: Pray that He would shape your heart for nourishing interactions with others (Colossians 3:12-14).
When your heart is open to loving and edifying others the way it was meant to be loved, your relationships will be enriched and empowered.
#5: Pray that He would bring healing into your past so that you are free to embrace the present (Philippians 3:13-14).
We are called to move forward and forget what has come before us; however, it is all too easy to get stuck in the past and become paralyzed from living in the present. Whatever your past holds, ask God to be at work in it so that you can live in the present.
#6: Pray that He would protect your emotional world and give you wisdom of how to set healthy boundaries (Proverbs 4:23).
Give God a chance to be a part of your emotional life just as much as He wants to be a part of your spiritual life by opening your emotional life to Him through prayer. I talk a lot about guarding our hearts and how to do it practically, but how often do we pray about our hearts?
#7: Pray that He would open your eyes to the joy of doing sex His way (Hebrews 13:4).
Let us ask God to open our eyes to doing life His way, and to download His heart onto ours, so we can truly understand what is best for our lives. It’s so easy to focus on what we can’t do before marriage and end up harboring bitterness and resentment.
#8: Pray that God would be the focus of your life now and forever (Psalm 37:4).
