A generation afraid of LOVE & MARRIAGE

Please pray for all the young people in the world who are afraid to love and commit to each other.

I am in my mid-twenties, and I have come to realize that so many people my age are afraid to love, and mostly afraid of making a commitment to one person in marriage.

Please pray for our generation -- that we may come to know the beauty of love and commitment. Please pray that we will open our hearts and let love in.

Love casts out fear - yet there is a whole generation living in fear. Please pray that we will abandon the fear and embrace love in our lives.

I truly believe that we are each meant to spend our lives with one special person who will be our partner, our love and our friend. I believe that committing to marriage makes us more complete human beings and enables us to give more back to the world.

Please pray that our generation comes to know love as a necessity and a joy -- not a burden.

Our Heavenly Father, we call upon you to guide this generation in decisions of marriage. So many of us are afraid to commit because we are not sure of our choice. Please Lord help us make the right choices, guide us to the partner you have chosen for us so we may live a happy and fruitful life. A life dedicated to glorifying you.

"But if you love... let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
and to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart
and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart
and a song of praise upon your lips."

Kahlil Gibran
Lebanese Poet, Author of "The Prophet"

I am in my early twenties, and just recently got married myself! :) Thank you for your prayer that people in our generation learn to love fully, and commit to that love through marriage. It is sad to see how many young people are afraid to love; I know that being with my husband has been the most beautiful experience, and I join you in prayer that the love of God may be expressed to young people through His gift of marriage!

7/23/2001 17:46

I do pray that this generation not only learns to love & commit to one another but that having children is truly the most blessed gift of all.

7/23/2001 19:10

I couldnt agree with you More! Please God shine your divine light of love and happiness and commitment on the hearts of this challanged generation and on the heart of the Angel who proposed this prayer.

Oh Father, our Lord, please help us understand and follow your teachings. Let us embrace the beauty of committing to our soul mates, the joy of giving and receiving unconditional LOVE. Give us the strength to be loyal, to see the beauty in our own backyard. Keep us from falling into temptations so our commitment to each other and to You will last forever. Allow us to experience Your Love though the hearts of our mates. We trust You and we know that You will help us build a better place to live and love.
Help my soul mate to find what he is looking for and on his way there to find You. Once he does that I know he will commit to me. Because I know You hear my prayers every nights.

Lord,our Father and Savior who art in heaven,I pray in the name of Jesus that you show this generation the true importance of marriage and commitment.Help them to open their eyes as to WHY you made this your law.That,it should'nt be looked upon as a duty but a blessing to find ONE person who was meant for you,commit to each other and share everything you have together as ONE.I want you God,to show these young people all the bad that comes out of not going before you in some type of ceremony and professing their love for each other.Show them that,when they trust in you and do what you ask them then no mistakes will they make in this life.You never intended for a woman to have to raise a baby alone or abort a precious life you sent down into this world.Or a man to share himself with multiple partners as this is the reason we have so many sexually transmitted diseases.Help us all Lord,to see the error of our ways and find our way to you which is where we all will truely find PARADISE...Amen!

Heavenly Father I come to you humbly and with bended knees to ask that you bless everyone that enter's into a commitment of marriage before you. Our world is full of chaos and unpredictablility and loose morals, but you word tells us that Blessed is the Man who walks in your favor, when a Man makes a promise, he creates an island of certainity in a heaving ocean of uncetainity.I ask you to touch the hearts of Men all over America to know the height and depth of your Love so they will know the importance of the love for their Mate. I pray the immorality and indifference, hate and dissention be utterly neutralized and washed away by the sacred commitment and covenant between two people who have said I do, before God....A firm foundation secured by a Godly Man will build our Family unit strong once more. I thank you Jesus that our prays will never be returned void. You are our protector and teacher and our comforter. In Jesus Name I ask these things Amen.

I pray for all of our generation who gets afraid at the thought of marriage and and commitment. Help us father from our state of confusion and get settled with who ever you have planned for us. One thing i believe is troubling us is the fact that we find too much fault with the once we are planning to tie the knot with. Lord please help us to come out from our confused state and help us understand your unconditional love for us to that we can also love our spouses unconditionally. I know that when i pray you unswer me. Thank you so much lord for unswered prayer in Jesus mighty name i pray with thanksgiving. AMEN AND AMEN.

Father, I thank you for revealing to me what love is. Love is affection. The root word of affect is in the word affection. When you love someone you affect their lives, you increase them, you agree with them in fulfilling their purpose on the earth. I thank God for teaching me about submission. Wives should submit to their husbands. I thank God for teaching me to be able to submit to the man of God. Love you all. Amen

Dear God, I have also encountered many people afraid to commit; afraid of the pain they might encounter in a relationship, when in fact the pain of loneliness is so much more acute. Please open their hearts to the Light of Your Love, let them not be afraid to seek out completion with another in Your Holy Name, this I ask in the Name of Jesus The Christ, for Thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory, Now and Forever, Amen!

10/17/2001 23:05

Dear Lord, I too know many afraid of committment, and it is sad that they will go through much of their lives on a false path, guided by fear and lust and not Your Love. Teach us, Wise Lord, to love each other unfailingly, as You love us. In the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.

You are the way the truth and the light through all things in this world and the next. Live God's way and no way should be the wrong way. With Love and Wisdom from a unequally yolked soul divorced after ten years.
