Prayer for woman


are desperately wanting a husband and children.

These prayers are designed to

help women feel heard


so that they feel

the comfort of God.


Dear Lord,

Sometimes I feel like a volcano that is ready to explode: quiet on the outside, and solid-looking and majestic.

But inside, I’m ready to erupt.

Oh, that I could scream loud enough for you to respond to my cry and give me a husband! I feel as though I can’t bear this any longer.

Another day is going by, and it looks like it will be another day without meeting “my prince.”

Another day, God, another day!

You are the God who is all wise. Can’t you think up a way for having a husband to be right for my life?

God, I want to make you proud.

I don’t want to mumble or complain.

I don’t want to be

self-centered or rebellious against your will.

How do I get my mind under control

so that I do not think,

“Husband” or “Baby”?


entertains me for hours.

How do I get the strength to kick self-pity out of my life?

Take me in your arms, and let me feel your love.

God, hold me tight even if I feel angry or struggle to run away from your will.

Give me revelations that will keep me from doing something stupid. Help me keep my heart tender toward your will for me.

I love you, God. I really do. But oh, I need your strength. I really need your strength.

Sunday Morning Isolation



While I was sitting in our big sanctuary last Sunday,

I was very aware

of the sermon


its implications on the listeners.

Several times

as the daily relationships of life were listed,

it was spouse and children

that were continuously highlighted.

It wasn’t that they were part of the list -

they were the list.

When life is discussed in church,

it is

generally ordered around

husband, wife, and children.

For those whose

hearts are unsatisfied with singleness,

the list

is just one more avenue

for emptiness to find an opening into their day.


As a woman,

the pain of singleness can be horrifically excruciating.

Every experience, whether at work, church, grocery store - or even turning on the television - reminds dissatisfied singles that their deep desire for family is being unmet. A woman can position herself to find men, but she cannot manufacture the godly man who will create the sparks that ignite romantic love and draw them into the agape experience of a godly union.

Worse yet

is the predicament

of the woman

who sees that her body is coming near the end

of fruitfulness.

The ticking clock

becomes louder and louder in her ears

as she desperately tries to contain her desires.

Married women

sit down next to her in prayer meetings

and dramatically

explain their dire need

for relief of problems such as

“time” for themselves.

To a dissatisfied single

"time for themselves"

sometimes seems like a small, insignificant problem.
