Love Prayers for our Loved Ones
O God, my Provider, I ask that You lead me into a long-lasting, passionate, healthy, and committed relationship. Keep me away from partnerships that can cause me damage or heartache.

Be my counsel while I seek love, Lord of Wisdom. You know I’ve had a string of unsatisfying relationships, been injured a few times, and made a lot of mistakes. Lord, please give me Your wisdom since I don’t trust myself to make the correct judgments. Help me make intelligent and educated judgments in my search for the ideal person for me to love and be loved. Amen.
Father in Heaven, You are aware that I am new to the dating world and am somewhat dazed by it all. Please give me wisdom as I manage a new relationship.

Assist me in asking the correct questions and determining whether I have the right answers. Amen.
Prayer to Help Me Love Myself
Thank You, God, for Your unfailing love. Lord, assist me to understand and love myself. How can I expect someone else to value me if I don’t value myself?

Help me figure out who I am, what I want out of life, and who I want in the person I will spend my life with. Amen.
Please direct me to a believer.
Please, Father of Lights, enlighten my path.

Above all, may this individual share my trust in You and have integrity based on what Your Word teaches, so that we may be one in You. Amen.
Prayer for Emotional Well-Being in Order to Give and Receive Love

Prayer to Heal My Heart
My Healer, God, You are aware that my previous relationship caused me a great deal of pain. Lord, heal my heart so that I can go on and discover true love. May Your Holy Spirit give me clarity during this period of recovery regarding the issues in my previous relationship, the types of people I should avoid, and what I need to alter in my own life to have a healthy, loving relationship in the future. Assist me in dealing with difficulties such as enabling behaviors, being overly needy, and a lack of trust. Amen.
Prayer to Renew Our Love
Lord, We’ve been married for a long, and our duties with work, children, and taking care of the house keep us apart. Help us to rediscover our feelings for one another.

Assist us in communicating lovingly, touching frequently, and having fun together. May our union represent the love You have for Your bride, the church. Amen.
Prayer for the ability to love others as God loves me
Father in Heaven, I am very grateful to be Your kid and to be able to call You “Abba,” because You are my loving Daddy! My heart is overflowing with joy. You have made me a part of Your divine nature, and Your love for me is so vast and profound that it is beyond my comprehension. May the truth of my identity in You permeate my mind and influence my interactions with others. Dear Heavenly Father, may I love others with compassion and care as You have loved me. Amen.
Prayer While I Wait
Thank you, God. I’m hoping You’ll guide me to that particular someone with whom I may share a loving and long-lasting relationship. Meanwhile, please assist me to be content in this season of being single. Please remind me that my hope is in You. You, not my future spouse, are the one who completes me. You are the provider of all good gifts, and Your timing is always right for me. I’d like to use this time to learn and improve. Amen.
A Husband’s Prayer
Dear Father, guide me to a husband who will love me as much as You love the Church. May his love for me be selfless, and may he provide for me and lead our family in a Christian manner. May he live with me with kindness and consideration, and with honor and respect. I hope he loves me as much as he loves himself. And Father, may I love him, respect him, and be a good wife to him. Amen.
Prayer for an Innerly Beautiful Wife
Lord, my Provider, I beseech You to give me a loving and pious wife. May her life be pure and reverent, and may she be lovely on the inside and out, focusing on building character, spirituality, and graciousness. May she have the deep inner beauty of a kind and serene spirit, a woman at peace with herself and with the world. Amen.
Prayer for the Right Reasons
Father of love, please bring me to someone to love. But may my yearning for love not be motivated by the wrong factors. Let it not be for selfish reasons, to placate my ego, or to make my ex jealous. It should not be because my biological clock is ticking, or because I feel like I need someone to look after me, or because my family or society is forcing me to be in a relationship. Take me to a location where my need for love is justified. Amen.
Prayer to allow me Return to my First Love
Lover of my soul, please return me to the place where I was when I loved You with all my heart, soul, and intellect. Rekindle my first love, when nothing or no one had sway over You in my life. I admit that I’ve let myself be sidetracked by the things of this world, and I haven’t spent that precious time of intimacy with You. Lord, forgive me and restore me. Amen.
Prayer for my husband to love me more
Father in Heaven, I come to You to ask that my spouse love me more. My loved one is faithful, dutiful to family chores, and friendly, but the passion we once shared has faded. Sometimes I feel like we’re distant or just roommates. I miss those days when we were truly intimate and bonding, when we shared our dreams, laughed together, and craved one other’s companionship. Rekindle the fire in my life partner’s eyes and heart. Amen.
Prayer to Love My Spouse More
God of faithfulness, I admit that I no longer love my partner as much as I once did. I am easily irritated, critical, and demanding. I am prone to wanting what I can get out of a relationship rather than devoting my entire self to my spouse. I’m sorry, Lord, and I want to make things right. Please assist me in remaining compassionate, forgiving, affirming, and affectionate. Remind me to be interested in the activities that my loved one enjoys, and assist us in turning a new page in our relationship. Amen.
Prayer for a Good Wife
Most High God, I came to You today to ask that You guide me to a virtuous wife: a woman who is spiritually minded, ethical, and pure in heart. May she be competent, efficient, and a diligent worker who plans ahead of time and completes the tasks she sets out to complete. May her words and deeds be kind and come from a compassionate heart. May I be all of these things to her, Loving Father. Amen.
Prayer for the Pursuit of a Special Person
Because You have poured out Your indescribable love on me, Loving Savior, I wish to share genuine love to another. I long to love someone else totally and completely. I want to have a particular someone in my life, someone I can devote myself to, someone I can appreciate and respect. Father, please guide me in the best direction to find this person. Amen.
Pray for a Cheating Spouse
Compassionate Lord, I begged for the well-being of my marriage. You are aware that my spouse has developed feelings for someone else. Save my marriage, Lord, for my sake, the sake of my children, and, most importantly, for Your honor and glory. May my wayward spouse turn away from this other person and return with an open heart to me and our children. Please help me forgive and trust again, and please help my spouse love me more profoundly than ever before, so that our marriage can be restored to a greater level. Amen.
Prayer for Someone who needs Love
Lord, bless you. You are aware that I am particularly interested in someone who adores You and is of good character. So far, this individual regards me as a friend, but Father, if You are willing, please open this person’s eyes to view me as more. May the person I’m interested in be romantically attracted to me, and may we create a relationship that honors You. Amen.
Prayer for a Loving Husband
Father in Heaven, I beseech You to send me a loving husband. May he be a man who works hard and is a decent provider, who is not prone to rage or addiction, and who prioritizes You in his life. May he be a source of encouragement, a good father to our children, and a giver of his time and love. Father, may we build a marriage on a foundation of love for You and for one another. Amen.
Prayer for New Love
Dear Father, You gave me a great partner, with whom I spent many years. And now that death has separated us, I am heartbroken. I desperately want to have someone back in my life. I crave affection and friendship. I long for someone with whom I can worship and share my deepest emotions. Dear Father, please guide me to someone who will be my new soul partner. Amen.
