Wanting a Husband

This page is written for women

who are strongly wanting a husband.


Women who are waiting on God for a husband

sometimes fall into

intense pining for the companionship and

the physical touch that marriage promises.

Most of their friends try to comfort them

by trying to

downplay this heartfelt desire.

Many friends and family

think that

listing the problems of being married



the “advantages” of being single

will help the suffering woman.

But women who are intensely praying for a husband

do not see many

- if any -

advantages to being single.

Women who want a husband just want a husband, and they wish their married friends would take their pain seriously. After all, the Bible tells us to weep with those who weep.

Hurting single women want those who love them to help them by praying for their prince to appear -  instead of making them feel uncomfortable for wanting a husband.


Women who are praying for a husband just keep questioning:

"Why does God have to take so long?"

If you haven't opened your heart and
prayed to the Lord about your feelings,
now is probably the time.

God knows that you have been wanting a husband

for quite awhile.

But he welcomes your prayers

as he guides you to the one for you.


And there IS Power in Prayer!

We at Inspirational-Prayers

hope that our prayers

will assist you in waiting


your prince walks into your life.


Dear God,

I worship you -  the Lord of my life. The one who is my companion and my friend.

My life, God, it is more and more centered on you.

I’m learning to take delight

in being with you


being your daughter.

But God, my deep desire…

it comes flooding into my thoughts

at unexpected moments.

I find myself

giving life to meditations about an imaginary marriage…

and those fantasy thoughts

only cause pain as they remind me of my lack.

I struggle to avoid the envy that tries to approach me as I observe a married couple gently finding each others’ hand as they walk next to each other.

Lord, parties and social events become times that stir up thoughts of my unfulfilled desire. While I am there, I anticipate the solitary drive home and the emptiness of my bed. I know that it won’t be a masculine man who walks me to the car afterward, but instead, a group of emotions that includes sadness and loneliness, and sometimes even hopelessness and depression.

“Where is he?”

takes center stage in my mind.

The sad reality is that

I cannot find what only you can give me.

The longing in my heart to be a dual oneness can hit me like a hit-and-run driver. I find myself knocked down and desperately trying to regain my footing.

Oh, God, I come to you wanting a release from this pain. Oh, that I could release my desire to you once and for all - never looking back, but instead, allowing your timing to reign supreme.

Lord of the miraculous, Lord of the impossible, comfort me this day.
