How to Pray For Something You Really Want

2. Start with gratitude.
I know You have a reason for what I’m going through, even if I don’t know what it is or how difficult it has been for me; if this pain is providing me with a soul correction or atonement, I thank You for that as well.
3. Talk to God about why you think you may be challenged with this particular problem.
Ask God to guide you in your search for your soulmate, and if you’re stumped, ask Him for some hints. Some people would never find God if they got everything they wanted right away; God withholds things from us to encourage us to pray and draw closer to Him.
4. Ask yourself: Why do I want what I’m praying for ? Can I purify my motives in some way?
Why do I want better health, more money, and a child? What will I do with these blessings if they come my way? Can I connect with a higher purpose for marriage?
6. Make a decision to change something to make your prayer more powerful
Take dating more seriously; don’t date just for the sake of dating; avoid sexual behaviors that impair your ability to think clearly; and try to change some related behavior to show God that you are serious about relationships and God’s Kingdom on Earth, Philippians 4:13.
7. Appeal to God’s infinite mercy and compassion.
In his New Year’s Day message to God, Desmond Tutu writes, “I am asking you, God, for a free gift; please answer me, not because I believe I merit or deserve it, but because you are a God of compassion and mercy.”
9. Don’t stop praying
Ask God to keep you from becoming discouraged, to give you the strength and desire to pray, and to keep you connected to the Source of all blessings.
10. Thank God for the privilege of speaking to Him.
