Prayer for single women

singlewoman-prays.jpg

 

****I have noticed people searching for this prayer, so I have included it here for their convenience. It is not something I prepared, but I offer it as a courtesy. Single women have much to offer the body of Christ, and need spiritual support to fulfill their unique mission. 

Reference and acknowledgment:

http://www.friendshipbaptistchurchsc.org/singlewomanprayer.htm

Father in the name of Jesus Christ, I come boldly before Your throne of grace confessing Your Word over my life as a single Christian.

I pray that You would help me to live a Godly life as a single Christian – a life that is holy, sanctified and set aside for the Master’s use, and prepared for Your good work.

I confess Your word, that as a single Christian, my life is crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live; yet it’s not I that live, but it’s Christ that lives in and through me; and the life which I now live in the flesh as a single Christian, I live it by faith, power and strength of the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Father, You said that You would not leave us alone, but You promised to send us the Comforter. I pray therefore, that You would fellowship with me daily through the Comforter of the Holy Spirit.

I pray that while I am single, may You be the One to whom I am married. Lord, when I get lonely, may You, through the Holy Spirit, be the One who comforts my heart. May You be unto me as a close friend that sticks closer than any brother. When I need someone to talk to, may I also find comfort, as well as pleasure in talking to You. And as I talk to You, may You speak continually back to my heart, and may You be my daily companion who keeps me company, as You walk with me each and everyday.

I pray that You would give me Godly friends and acquaintances that will be an encouragement to me to live for, love and serve You with all of my heart, soul, strength, and might. And, keep me away from those who would draw my heart away from You and draw me into idleness, worldliness, carnalness or ungodly situations or relationships.

Your Word says that You are able to keep me from falling and present me faultless with exceeding great joy. I pray, therefore, that You would help me to keep watch of the eveil one in my life. Father, as a single Christian, help me not to be drawn or lured into sexual temptation, and keep me from falling into fornication, adultery or any other sexual sin, immorality or perversion.

By the power and strength of the Holy Spirit, I pray that You would also keep me from each and every satanic spirit of seduction. May You help me to flee youthful lust, keep me from compromising situations, and help me to avoide the very appearance of evil.

Father, help me to not allow the devil to confom my mind to see the single Christian life as one that is broing, incomplete or unfulfilling. I pray that through Christ Jesus, You help me to see my life as joyous, exciting and fully complete. I pray that You would fill every empty and lonely place of my heart with excitement in You and Your work. And may You always be the center of my joy, as You strengthen and renew my heart in You each and every day.

I pray that You would help me to be continually occupied doing Your work and Your will. Help me not to allow my mind to be consumed with the desire or want for a mate, but rather, consumed with You, Your Word, doing Your will, and pleasing You. And help me to keep my eyes, as well as my heart and mind stayed upon You.

Now Father, i thank You that my heart safely rests in You, Your provisions and Your loving arms of care. And may You continually be all of my fulfillment, my desire and completeness. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, AMEN.

  2. This is an awesome prayer. Thanks it’s just what I needed to pray.

  3. Kim,

    Thank you. Remember God’s word indicates that married women are devoted to their husbands, and need to put their attention on them first, but the single women puts all her attention on God. So single women have a very important role in the kingdom. :)

    God bless you

  8. Thanks for youe encouraging words

    God Bless

  9. An awesome enlightenment!! Living a day of gratitude to God and leaving the worries to be single!!!

    • Hi Ena,

      God bless you. Remember the bible says that a single woman puts God first, while a married woman is concerned about pleasing her husband. Enjoy the relationship if you are single. The Lord is your bridegroom and you are his bride.

  10. Thank you for such a beautiful prayer.
    Many Blessings

  11. Being single sucks. Who wants to be alone in this cold cruel world?When u have been married and are use to the companionship of a man it;s hard.

    • dear KHB

      You are right. It is hard being single. It is also hard being married to the wrong person. Finding the right man is also hard.

      Put it in God’s hands. You will be ok.

    • I am single and it is hard. However, I experienced loneliness while unhappily married, too. God is present in both experiences & fortifies me as I surrender to Him. I pray that I choose to use my loneliness to be closer and to listen to Him. I pray for strength to fight Satan’s fiery darts and that I wear the breastplate of my dwelling within the Holy Spirit. Amen!

      • dear Edie

        I pray the Lord comforts and protects you, and keeps you in his presence. And that he brings fellowship into your life and emotional support from good people.

  12. Halleljuah! TGBTG! Thanks for this awesome solid prayer

  13. I tank you so much for that prayer. I have lost who I am by wanting so deeply the desires of a mate. God has brought me so fair that I know that there is no room for anything else but him in my life. When the time is right he will share me with his gift and noot my own want. I thank you for your prayer over my heart and I thank God for the gifts that he has given me and the words that he has given to you. Bel blessed and fullfilled always.

  14. This prayer is very much needed in my life at this time. I praise GOD for using you at such a time as this.

  15. I’m soo glad that I happened upon this website and this prayer, I printed this prayer for a friend at work and then was emailed later today from another woman who is hurting. I sent her the prayer as well. God be the glory.

  16. the prayer fits at its best for a single christian like me who somehow desires to pursue the life of being a Christ’s full-time servant. thank u so much for the prayer.

  17. I thank God for that prayer. It has encouraged me even more. I am waiting on the Lord, and having a close relationship with Him by reading His word, worship and praise and much prayer. It get’s hard sometimes, but well worth it.

    • hi Stacy

      I am glad the prayer helped you. We are all going through a “tunnel” created by the world and the enemy, but we will come out of that tunnel, victorious in the end. May God bless you always.

  18. Not too sure about that. I am a single Christian and I would dearly love to have someone to share this journey with. Someone to encourage me and vice versa. It’s very hard in this world to be a single Christian coming up against non-believers. I get so upset that I can’t talk to a lot of people about God, hell,
    the rapture, the tribulation, Heaven etc and having someone to talk with and support me would be great.

  19. Thank u so much 4 this prayer I know that I am not alone in serveing God may the Lord Bless you !

  20. ithank god 4this website that i just happan to find glory be to god who is using his people to spread the good news be blessed…. amen,Ms: es namibia.

  21. I will to get my life to the Lord
    I will service him the rest of my life by praise God in the dance.
    you the only God in my life and Heart,
    I meet another life me always in my heart.

  22. Fellow people of the book (Christians and Jews). The comforter whom Jesus (Peace Be Upon Him) talked about already came and binded with us forever. He is the final Prophet, of Holy Spirit as all other Prophets (David, Solomon, Lot, Job, Moses, Jesus, etc.). Jesus used to Worship the Lord of the worlds. So did all the prophets including the final Prophet and the Messenger, Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him). Worship the God of the worlds who created the heavens and the earth and all that is within them. Seek refuge from worshipping the prophets as they will deny anyone who ascribes them a parter with God Alone.

    • And in John 14:5-14 Jesus tells us that He is the only way to the Father (creator of the universe/G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob).

      Jesus the Way to the Father

      Book of John chapter 14:5Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

      6Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7If you really knew me, you would knowb my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

      8Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”

      9Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 11Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. 12I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. 14You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

    • dear “comforter already came”

      The bible clearly says the comforter is the Holy Ghost ( Holy Spirit).

      Jesus speaks in this passage:

      Jhn 14:26 But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

      So it is not a man, like Mohammed.

      Also, the comforter comes in the name of Jesus, and Mohammed did not do this either.

  23. Fellow people of the book (Christians and Jews). The comforter whom Jesus (Peace Be Upon Him) talked about already came and binded with us forever. He is the final Prophet, of Holy Spirit as all other Prophets (David, Solomon, Lot, Job, Moses, Jesus, etc.). Jesus used to Worship the Lord of the worlds. So did all the prophets including the final Prophet and the Messenger, Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him). Worship the God of the worlds who created the heavens and the earth and all that is within them. Seek refuge from worshipping the prophets as they will deny anyone who ascribes them a parter with God Alone.

    • Hey The comforter…

      Jesus/Yeshua was and still is the Son of G-d/Yahweh/Jehovah/THE G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob!

      Jesus and Nicodemus

      Book of John
      1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicode’mus, a ruler of the Jews:
      2 the same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
      3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
      4 Nicode’mus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
      5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
      6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
      7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
      8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
      9 Nicode’mus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?
      10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
      11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
      12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
      13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
      14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, Num. 21.9 even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
      15 that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

      God So Loved the World
      16 ¶ For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
      17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
      18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
      19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
      20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
      21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

    • REVALATION 12:7
      7.” Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon(SATAN). And the dragon and his angels fought back,
      8. but he was defeated…
      9. and the great dragon was thrown down…he was thrown down to the earth and his angels were thrown down to the earth with him.
      12. woe to you o earth and sea for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!
      13. And when the dragon saw that he had been thrown down to the earth, he pursued the woman (ISRAEL) who had given birth to the male child (JESUS).

      You see, Islam is the church of Satan trying to destroy Israel. You will not convert those whom the real comforter, the Holy Ghost, resides in for we are protected by the one true God Yahweh, The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (AKA Israel). His name is NOT ALLAH!
      If by some means your Eyes are opened to see this truth, Then you will repent and come out of Satans church.

  24. 44 and along and after reading this I understand that I am not along. God is awalys with me. AMEN

  25. Marianne,
    I am with you. I am praying by Christmas time that God will
    send the right person for me and for you in the nick of time.
    We don’t want to be lonely anymore and a good man with
    Godly feature will help us get through to this. We all
    need it desperately.

  26. Thank you so much. The prayer really helped. I really needed encouragement. Its hard being a single parent but God has been so graciou and faithful. May God increase you. Remain blessed.

  27. For some reason, intimacy by physical touch or audible voice does not come with our personal relationship with the Lord. This aspect leaves us lonely. Having a pet sometimes can help the physical touch aspect in a small way.

    Intimacy by communion of spirit can and does come with our personal relationship with the Lord. Speaking from personal experience, marriage cannot match the inter-twining of Holy Spirit speaking into my spirit, inside my head. With all the effort I made to merge thoughts with my spouse, each to clearly read the other’s mind, it just has never happened. Very different with the Lord though. He places his thoughts in our mind, and we to him.

    Indeed it is very difficult to raise children without the godly influence of two Christian parents. World society is hemorrhaging. So many lonely godly women! So many lonely godly men! So many children desiring to have two godly parents! So many hearts in pain that Jesus sees.

    I pray for each of you my sisters in the Lord, that He speak ever so more clearly to you. That way you can openly ask him When? and Why? and Who? and How? that soul mate is for you, so that you will hear his voice SO clearly that your soul will find peace in your Lord’s voice. Amen.
    =========================================================
    Joh 10:4 When he hath put forth all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him: for they KNOW his voice.

    • dear sandra

      You are not alone. Many women are having the same experiences. Men also.

      This is a time when the evil in this world makes those who are righteous feel isolated,

      Look up, to the Lord in his heaven and his spirit will comfort you.

      know also that there is a fellowship of saints ready to meet you, so do not give up yet on this life.

      you can accomplish much if you join forces with others to accomplish some good somewhere.

      you are also welcome here. join in the comments and discussions anytime you wish

      read your bible and let it speak to you.

      give yourself some time to connect with Yahweh God.

      you are going to be ok.

      many blessings and encouragements I wish to you

      I will keep you in my prayers.

  35. Thank you for this prayer – I just prayed it, and it’s a blessing. I really want to focus on my relationship with God while I’m still single. It’s so important that we don’t get consumed in life with our desire to be married.

  36. I needed this word of encouragment in my life, thank you

  37. This was my first time at this but thank u.it touch every part of me.

  38. A a single woman in looking for a husband but with this prayer am confortable it will change me Gods time is the best

  39. Thank you for this prayer. I have been single for so long, dated here and there but no relationship worth speaking of in 10 years and in 2011 I got back with an old boyfriend from years ago. I was desperate for love, affection, and companionship I wasted a year of my life holding on to someone who really wasn’t available emotionally or in any capacity. In the beginning he sold me a dream of getting married and I bought it real cheap. I have been alone for so long and in company of unhealthy “relationships” I feel as if I almost had a mental breakdown. I am not healed but I am a work in progress

    • kika

      We are all facing disappointment now, since the world has turned dark, and very few good people are left. so it is not your fault you have no one. it is like looking for a needle in a haystack.

      a good man, who is still single, is too hard to find now. just know until you find someone, that Jesus is your bridegroom, and he will direct your paths

  40. Thank you for the powerful prayer.i had same sentiments as KHB .your responce to her console,comforts and assures me that i put everything to God’s hands he will definetely give me the right man who suits me according to Gods will and riches

  41. When I was younger I always wanted to marry (naturally) but it never happened because I never found Mr. Right. Now that I’m older, I’m used to being single and accepted the fact. Of course at times it gets lonely. But I think to myself – maybe I wasn’t meant to find a partner? Who knows? Maybe I would have had a bad marriage? Problem with kids?

    God directs our path in life, we don’t always get what we wish for, but our first wish should be to follow Him.

    • Jill

      there are many single people out there. I am one also.

      we all have different destinies, and should look for the meaning in our lives in order to fulfill that divine purpose.

      I once was married, and a bad marriage will ruin one’s life. so you are right.
      i am better off now, but alone like you said.

      however I can either see it as solitude with the Lord, or loneliness…it is my choice.

      so I choose the Lord.

      he is coming soon….so hang in there.

  42. I am saddened right now. I have been in a relationship on and off for three years. Then he says he wants to get married a year ago and recently and its not true. Im tired of this. I miss my mother because she died two years ago. Its hard for me to be optimistic. Its hard for me to be positive. I do not know what to do. I pray. I try to treat people right. I mean im just confused. I want to be a wife and mother. Why is it that I cant have this in my life. ……Reading the other posts have been enlightening- but im definitely not a “misery loves company” type of woman. Lord, I just pray for strength and endurance. For guidance and grace…..

    • dear Porshaa

      You sound like you have so much to offer others, why are you with someone who does not deserve you?

      You have picked the wrong person, maybe because you think that is all you can get. do not under value yourself.

      I encourage you to look around and find better company…nice people who care about you and like you for who you are…

      I pray that God blesses you with positive company and friends…and that you have the life you deserve.

      • Thank you very much. I will keep praying. I guess I feel that I am going to be old and alone. I truly want to be a wife and mother. Ok. I wont under value myself. Thank you and God bless you. I do have a lot to offer and I have to pray and keep trusting and believing. Again, God bless you. Thank you for caring.

        Porshaa

  43. Love this !
