The root of this yearning can be a dream to have a happier marriage, to be married, to have children or to have a loved one be saved.

Prayer for Unmet Desires

Dear Lord,

My heart has been dwelling on the things I want, not the things I’ve got.

It takes away my joy and draws me away from your plan for my day.

Forgive me, Lord.

Remind me to meditate on you.

Teach me to so deeply enjoy your blessings in my life that I can easily reject dissatisfaction.

May I fully embrace your plan for me today.

Second Prayer for Unmet Desires

Dear God,

My heart aches.

My deep desires keep finding their way into the center of my attention.

Frustration forces its way into my life as I cry out for my desire to be fulfilled.

Oh, God. I cannot make it happen.

I cannot produce the one thing that has remained outside of my grasp.

Oh, God, have mercy on me.

Bring my desire into a position of peaceful surrender.

Enable my emotions to obey your will for me this day.

I want to want your will for this day and each day of my life.
