7 Scripture Prayers for Singles

1 Corinthians 7:8-9
Dear Lord, I am currently single and to society this may seem strange or looked down upon. But Your word says to the unmarried and to the widows that it is good for them if they remain single so long as they have self-control. I thank You for the discipline You have given me to be single, I pray that I do not feel pressured by society to find a partner as I know that I am great as I am, Amen.

1 Corinthians 7:34
Hallelujah to Your Name Father! Being single has been hard and has felt lonely at times, but Lord we look to You. Your Word declares that an unmarried or no longer married individual can be devoted to You and be holy in body and in spirit. Thank You for keeping me holy! I pray that I always focus on You, irrespective of my relationship status. The most important relationship status is the one with You, Amen.

Colossians 2:10
Holy Father, as a single it is easy to often feel like I’m less or a leftover. It’s easy to feel lonely and depressed; but being single does not mean that we are not whole. Your Word declares that we are complete through our union with You, who is the head over every ruler and authority. Our completion does not come when we find a partner, but our completion can be found in You. Thank You Lord for making us whole, Amen.

Psalm 37:4
Righteous God, I take delight in You and in doing so (Your word tells me that) You will give me my heart’s desires! I am single right now and I understand that this doesn’t guarantee that I will get a partner. But I find comfort in knowing that whether I am single or married, I can always find delight in who You are. In addition to this, You give me what my heart desires! Father, I adore You and I praise Your Name for this, Amen.

Ephesians 2:10
Awesome Creator, I thank You because I am Your masterpiece! I am beautiful in Your eyes. Your word reminds me that being single does not mean that there is something wrong with me, because everything good comes from You. Lord I am good, and I have been created anew in You, so that I can do the good things that You had planned for me long ago. I pray that in my state of singleness I remember that I am beautiful, Amen.

Mark 12:25
Heavenly One, I thank You for who You are. Right now, I am single but when the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. In heaven, the priority is worshiping You, therefore let this be my priority on earth. Let Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. I pray that when I am single, I praise You with all my heart and when/if I am married, I do the same, Amen.

Matthew 6:33 & Isaiah 54:5
Wonderful Counselor, I pray that I seek first Your kingdom and Your righteousness, and all these things will be given to me as well. I pray that although I am single, I do not seek a partner more than I seek You. Lord, I have everything I need in You and I praise You for it. You are my Maker and my husband, Lord uniting with You is the only way that I can be truly whole, Amen.
