Most women, when they reach a certain age, begin to worry about who their future husbands will be and if they will ever find him.
Many Christians now believe that if you want to find a husband, you must devote your life to God in order for him to provide you with one. The best decision you can make as a Christian is to devote your life to God, but that doesn’t guarantee that you’ll find a husband once you’ve done so.
There are many single ladies out there who are deeply committed to God and have been for years, if not decades. There are also ladies who are married despite their lack of devotion to God.
But, in all of this, I am certain that if you are loyal to God, your life will unfold according to his purpose. When you devote yourself to God, you allow Him to work through you, and His purpose is carried out in your life.
This means that, while committing your life to God does not guarantee that you will find a husband right away, it does guarantee that you will be precisely where God wants you to be and that his will will be done in your life at the appropriate time.
So, if you’re a devout Christian who has been praying for a husband for years and still hasn’t found the one, don’t assume God has forgotten about you. Know that you’re serving a good and faithful God who has your best interests at heart. Have faith in Him and trust that in his time, he will lead you to the one.
But until then, what you can and should do is draw closer to God and pray. When praying, instead of focusing on all the physical attributes you may want in a man, focus on God leading you to a man who is a devoted Christian, who will help strengthen your relationship with God.
Also, pray for God to prepare you and your future husband for a godly marriage that is rooted in God. Here are some sample prayers to serve as a guide when praying for your future husband.
Prayers for my future husband
Prayer to find a husband
Almighty Lord, thank you for the life you’ve given me. Lord, I’d like to have a husband with whom I can share this life. So please prepare a god-fearing man for me. A man who puts you first in whatever he does. A man who wants nothing more than to worship and serve you. A man who will respect and adore me as a wife. Thank you for listening to my prayers and answering them, Amen.
Prayer to look out for the right qualities in a man
Precious Lord, I come before you today to pray for my future husband. I pray that when it comes to finding the right man for me, you will guide me in the proper direction. I’ve made poor mistakes in the past by relying on my own thoughts and entering relationships that weren’t good for me. Father, I don’t want to make the same mistakes again. So this time, I give myself to you. Assist me in my search for a Christian man.
Please help me in finding the man that you, Lord, have prepared for me. Please don’t let me pick a spouse based on my own ideals. Instead, provide me insight and mental clarity to keep an eye out for the ideal qualities in a husband. Please lead me to a man who loves you and is eager to learn more about you so that we can worship you and study your word together. Please direct me to a man with whom I can properly serve you. A man who will love me and whom I will be able to share a happy marriage with. This I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Prayer for a devout man of God
Everlasting God, You said in your word that it is bad for a man to be alone, therefore you provided him with a fitting helper and friend. I’m alone now, and I’d like to find a suitable companion. I pray that, just as you provided Adam with a companion, you provide me with a life companion. I pray that he is a devout man of God who desires to know you on a deeper level. I pray that he is a man who lives a life that honors your name. Help him to be submissive to you and grow in faith in Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen
Guide us to one another
Dear God, thank you for guiding and protecting me throughout my life. God, I get lonely at times, and I’d like to find someone to share my life with. So here I am, humbly requesting that you provide me with a husband. Your word says we should ask, and it will be given to us. So, Lord God, I beseech you to provide me with a godly man with whom I may share my life.
Direct our paths, order our steps and guide us to one another. Please don’t let us make bad decisions by settling with the wrong people due to loneliness. Grant us patience as we wait on your timing for the right time to meet. Please give us insight and understanding so that we can grow and mature individually. Prepare us for each other, as we wait on your timing, Amen.
Guide me in recognizing the right qualities in a man
Lord, I’ve been in the wrong relationships in the past for all the wrong reasons, and I’ve had my heart broken numerous times because I was looking for the wrong qualities in a man. Father, I pray that you will guide me in recognizing the right qualities in a husband.
Teach me to focus on his heart rather than his external appearance. Rather than focusing on his material possessions, teach me to look for a guy who is more concerned with inheriting God’s kingdom than with his own. Please lead me to a godly man who is filled with the Holy Spirit, who fears and desires you above all else. This I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen
Please give me patience
Compassionate Lord, I’ve been praying to you for a husband for quite some time now. I pray that you keep giving me the patience to wait on your time. Please don’t make me jump into anything that isn’t right for me. Please don’t let me get caught up in how long I think it’s taking. Concentrate my thoughts on you and how to serve you. I’m confident that, in your own time, you’ll lead me to a man who will love and treat me as his wife. Thank you very much for listening to my prayer through Jesus Christ. Amen

Prayer for my future husband’s work
Dear God, I’m praying today for the success of my future husband’s business or work. I have no idea who he is or what he does, but you certainly do.

Please, Lord, guide him in the right direction for work to do. If he is already working, I pray you will continue to establish his work. Assist him in being honest and hardworking. In Jesus’ name, bless all his works and make them productive, Amen.
