Our prayers should bring honor to God by an attitude of gratitude.

Regardless of what we are going through, we know from Scripture that there is so much to thank God for, beginning with His character qualities.

  • He is faithful when others are not.

  • He will never change when others do. Consequently, we are blessed immeasurably just by knowing God personally.

Prayers for single women who fear being single

Dear Heavenly Father, I have been single now for _____________, and I sometimes fear I will be single for the rest of my life. I long to be a good wife to the right man. But I fear that will never happen.

I know that fear does not come from you, so that means this fear is something the evil one is trying to harass me with.

Lord, I know that the evil one does not want me to not trust you. Your word records King David as saying “When I am afraid I will trust in you.” Lord Jesus, I choose to trust you.

And LORD, many Bible verses say to be thankful. I choose to thank you for this time of singleness even though I don’t understand it.

I ask that you will guard my single heart and help me to desire your will in my life.

Help me to be conformed to your image. I ask that I might love you more than the desire for a life partner. May you be my heart’s desire first and foremost. Then may your love spill over into others as I serve them.

Help me to wait on you to give directions for the next steps in my life.

In the name of Jesus, Amen.
