Praying for a Husband

The following prayer and scriptures are for the single Christian women who may be searching for a Prayer for a Husband from God.

Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that God does not plan to abandon us, but to give us the future we hope for. God’s love surpasses knowledge and we could only imagine (Ephesians 3:19). The Bible also commands us that we should bring “everything in prayer and supplication.” To pray for a husband, if it is the desire of a woman’s heart, is therefore very biblical for God has commanded us to pray for our every need and desire. It is also right to expect God to lovingly answer our prayer with something that reflects His exceeding goodness! Without faith, it is impossible to please God!

However, it is also true that praying for a husband can become very challenging when we are asked by God to wait for the answer indefinitely. But one thing is sure, His promise in His Word is true – He

always provides for our every need, even the grace to wait for His perfect time.

Matthew 6:33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

Luke 12:24 (NASB) “Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap; they have no storeroom nor barn, and yet God feeds them; how much more valuable you are than the birds!”

Psalm 103:1,5 (NASB) “Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.”

 Ephesians 3:17-19 (NASB) “…that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.”

Jeremiah 29:11 (The Message) “I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.”

Psalm 37:4 (NASB) “Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart.”

If we will choose to delight in God (Psalm 37:4) and trust Him with all our heart and lean not on our own understanding (Proverbs 3:5 ff.), He will lead us to His perfect will, which is good beyond our imagination. There are many single women I know who are joyful and fulfilled despite the yet unanswered prayer for a husband. I also know of women, who have prayed and received a wonderful answer, now being married. I believe that both these groups of women are successful in their prayers because they learned to trust and depend on God to be their source of joy and strength.

But what if our godly mate is already ready for us and waiting but it is you who are not yet ready for him? Another element is that we should also pray for God to prepare us to be a godly wife.

Lastly, because each of us is unique, our prayers should definitely be marked by unique requests based on our desires and even calling or purpose in life. A missionary friend of mine, for example, is asking God for someone with a similar passion for missions. Thus, our prayers for a husband may vary but it will be good to keep in mind that they should be faith-filled prayers based on God’s Word, and honest, heartfelt prayers that are expressions of our trust and intimacy with our Heavenly Father.


Abba Father, I thank You that you love me and that You have an awesome plan for my life! You have plans to give me the future that I hope for.  As I lift up to you my desire for a godly spouse, continue to conform the desires of my heart to Your heart’s desires. Cause me to delight in You more than any other thing.  Prepare me also to be the godly wife, that I will be a rare jewel of a blessing to my future mate. Raise me up to be a Proverbs 31 woman who lives in the fear of You (Proverbs 31:30). Preserve me for my future mate and guard my heart. (Song of Solomon 2:7, 8:9)

I thank You God that even as You are preparing me, You are also raising up for me a man who loves Jesus with all his heart, mind, soul and strength — a man after Your very heart (Matthew 22:37). Raise him up in Your Word, let him be meditating on Your precepts day and night, and bring him success in all he does (Psalm 1, Joshua 1). Bless him and fill him with the knowledge of Your love (Philippians 1:9) and Holy Spirit. May he always about in joy and in the fruits of the Spirit (Romans 15:13). Keep his eyes and his ways pure. I pray that he will make a covenant to guard his eyes and heart (Job 31:1)!

I also pray that he will be a man who is able to lead in righteousness, justice and love (Psalm 45). Raise him up to be a godly husband and father.  Thank You Lord that You know me well and You know how to pick the best mate for me. I trust in Your perfect will and I pray that I will recognize it in the right time. You make everything beautiful in Your time!  In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

We know that the Lord will answer your prayers for a husband because He says he who finds a wife finds a good thing!  Be blessed and stay patient.  If you are looking for other prayers, we have many on this website – take a look : Prayers

  1. Thank you Lord that I have released all that is not for me to allow you to bring the very best into my life in your perfect time. I will be anxious for nothing. Thank you, Lord.

  2. Jesus help me I will keep Praying everyday for a partner, a husband to come into my life and someone who can be a great father figure to my boys. I am a great women and need a faithful man in my life. I been hurt for too long and can not wait until God sends me a man in my everyday path of life. Let him come to me very soon. I am a great women and will LOVE my future husband forever.

  3. Dear God, I pray you bring me a great man and husband into my life. I was married for 20 years and he was not faithful to me nor to our two boys who are older now and understand. I want a father figure role model who can spend time with them and teach them right from wrong. A husband whom I will love, cherish, respect and I want the same from him. In a relationship it takes two to make it work. I can not wait to meet him. Let him be passionate about our relationship, let him be smart, hardworking and loving to me and my boys. AMEN

  4. Thank you. I am so torn up about this. I have my dream job and have lovely friends and so I’ feel selfish asking for me yet my prayer is a kind CHristian man to share this all with and build a future with. Are some people just not meant to get married because that’s my biggest fear that I may be praying for something that isn’t part of the plan at all. Scares me

  5. This is just what I needed to hear. I declare to trust God and wait for His answer in obedience, even though it is difficult.

  6. Amen! This article & prayer was a confirmation to me that I should be praying for God to develop me, and that he should let my heart know when I have met the right one!

  7. I really appreciate this sometimes i would even feel bad when praying for a life partner. i trust God will bless me with a God fearing man i just need to wait for Him. As i wait i will be saying this prayer.

  8. Thank you for this prayer. I have met someone, but not sure that he is the right person for me from God. As much as i would like him to be, i want it to be God’s choice and will not mine. So i try and pray to God asking him to bring the right person, if it is this man, then i pray that marriage will not delay and God shall reveal it to me. I have to totally trust God on this matter.

  9. Wow!!! This prayer is like someone just read my heart! It is everything I feel wholeheartedly and honestly yearn to have. I know God knows the desires of my heart, but I also pray that my desires will line up with His. I thank you so much for helping me to express my desires to God. As I pray for my future husband (and so much more) I also pray God’s abundant blessings on you and your ministry.
    Thank you, again!

  10. Well I’m still praying to God that the men he brought to me be the one, he was there during my pregnancy all the way and never left. His now studying to become a pastor, its been 3years I’ve been with him. In jesus name please Lord I pray he marries me.

  11. This was a great article. I am ernestly trying to make a habit (a mindful one of course) to pray for my husband. I pray in the present even though our union is in the future. I don’t know him, at least I don’t think I do…either way, I’m going to keep praying for him.

    I’m also in a dating relationship, I am careful though not to assume that the man I’m dating will be my husband. I don’t know, so I want to pray appropriately.

  12. Very beautiful and well composed prayer. i will be using it as am praying for a partner.

    1. Tamara, How are you doing? I was so glad reading your short but cogent one line sentence reflecting on praying for a partner. Coincidentally that has been and still my sincere prayer to God for a God loving and fearing respectable life partner.

      I graduated with a degree in Missional Studies. I am a born again Christian who do not believe in any sinful bodily affairs before marriage according to I Corinthians 6:15-20 which I believe you do too as a Christian.

      Anyways, since both of us are praying for God fearing partners, I would please like us to be good friends as we pray and see where the Lord will lead us. Pray the Lord guide and give us a discerning spirit as we both pray for His Will for our lives. You can respond to this mail with the email address provided. Looking forward to hearing from you. Remain bless in the Lord.

      In His Service,
      Ibrahima Barry.
