PRAYING FOR YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER

Prior to meeting my boyfriend, I prayed to God about the type of man He would provide me. In high school and the beginning of college I had horrible luck with guys. They would really like me for a couple weeks, but then hit a halt. I prayed for someone who would love me when my true colors came out beyond the honeymoon phase. I prayed for someone who would be patient, humble, encouraging, and honest. But most importantly I prayed for someone who loved God slightly more than he loved me. After God granted me with the man of my prayers (and not of my dreams) I continued to pray and I still do. I pray for our relationship, our careers, and our families. I pray for our bad days, our good days, and all in between. And I mostly pray for us to continue growing in our faith, both together and separately.

Here are 5 verses to pray for your significant other, that I often pray:

  • "As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love." Ephesians 4:1-2; Pray that they continue to grow strong in their faith and love for Christ, humbly, gently, and patiently. 
  • "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who live him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28; Pray that they will follow their God given purpose, even when days are long and rough.
  • "The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and He helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise Him." Psalm 28:7; Pray that they will turn toward the Lord in hardships and that they will praise Him for all of their days.
  • "Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path." Psalm 119:105; Pray that they will seek His word and guidance when looking for direction.
  • "Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and He will flee from you." James 4:7; Pray that they will resist temptation and turn from evil.
How do you pray for your significant other?
