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.

All I know is I'm afraid. I'm torn both ways myself. I want relationship; but then again I don't want to get hurt. I haven't had the best of luck. I'm in my mid-twenties & sometimes it really all seems so pointless at times. But I know in my heart that God has a plan for all of us. The hardest thing I think, is to remember instead of getting discouraged; rather, be thankful for today & for God's little surprises that make it all worth while.

Heavenly Father, I thank you that you revealed to me. That looking for the perfect mate is not the answer, but being the perfect mate is. I loose the fear of commitment to all those who are in bondage that they may grow closer in love in Jesus name amen

Dear Lord, I pray and I know that you hear the prayers of your people. Please here these on this special request for a generation who will stop giving into the temptation of pleasing themselves with worldy relationships and who will start looking to you for the right guidelines to a godly relationship. Help those of us who are struggling with others who are scared of committment and gives us your Holy Spirit to guide us through the words they need to hear for reassurance. Help all of us to know that if we look to your word for the answers and come to you with pure hearts, you will keep our relationships strong, and our marriages and families as well. In the name of our Precious Lord Jesus I pray-Amen!
I once heard a minister who was performing a wedding say that a marriage is like a triangle with you and your spouse at the bottom two corners and the Lord at the top, well then the closer you get to the Lord the closer you get to each other!

Father,
I pray from the deepest part of my heart and soul that people will return to innocence and the plan you had for our lives. May people not embrace the world's difinition of Love, but through your wisdom follow your Word and find a life-time mate(if that is your will for their life). Proverbs 18:22 says the man who finds a wife finds a good thing. She is a Blessing to him from the Lord. Mark 10:9 says no man may seperate what God has joined together. Thank you for your Grace and Wisdom, and your Undying love for us, your children. In Jesus name, AMEN*
Thank you for this Prayer Post, as this is a serious problem today. I too am in my mid-twenties, and see my generation shying away from committed relationships. The media and the rest of the world play a big part on how people think today, so I also Pray for us to have discernment on what is Truth and good in our lives, and what is from the World(and all that encompasses...God Bless and Love to you*

Our Heavenly Father, please bless the young people around the world, that they will understand the importance and sacredness of marriage. Please help them to understand that marriage is ordained of thee and that it is an important principle in this life. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen

Dear Lord
I pray for all those (like myself) who are searching for someone who will love, honor, cherish and respect them. It is really hard in this day and age to find someone with these qualities in a male or a female. Please Lord, answer the prayers for those who really want to have a loving, meaningful relationship blessed by you Our Father. Amen.

I am getting married in September and am getting panicked over this. I have prayed Novenas to St. Martha and St. Clare, The Infant of Prague and wish to thank them for listening to my prayers. I hope they will continue to hear my prayers, guide me and my fiancee in the right direction, and give me the courage not to be afraid of committment to this person who is gentle, loving, my soul mate and best friend who I love spending my life with. I can find no fault with him, but am simply afraid to move to the next step especially when I hear of so many stories of marriage breakups these days. I have always feared separation and marriage breakup since I was young and always aspired to have the happiness that my parents share. I want to be with the one person for life. Please pray that I can overcome my insecurities and move confidently to the next stage. Please pray that all will work out for us. I have prayed that we will have overcome this difficulty before March, which is 6 months before our big day. My fiancee is very understanding of me and has supported me wholeheartedly through these insecure times, despite the difficulties it imposes on him. His love for me has not been shaken because of this. Grant that we will always be so understanding and loving of eachother throughout any difficulties that we may encounter in our lives together. Grant that these trials serve to strengthen our relationship with each other, and strengthen our faith in God.

If you need someone to pray to, I have always prayed to St. Martha and St. Clare. These never fail.

St. Clare: Ask for 3 favours, 1 business and two personal. Say nine hail Marys for 9 days with a ligthed candle. Your request will be granted by the 9th day no matter how impossible it seems.

St Martha:O St. Martha I resort to thee and to thy petition & faith
I offer up to thee this light which I shall burn every Tuesday for 9 Tuesdays
Comfort me in all my difficulties through the great favour thy didst enjoy when our Saviour lodged in thy house
I ask thee St. Martha to have definite pity with regard to the favour I ask (mention favour)
Intercede for my family that we may always be provided for in all our difficulties.
Say Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be THREE times each

Promise to make known the Novena of St. Martha. Say every Tues for 9 Tuesdays with lighted candle. This miraculous saint grants your requests NO MATTER HOW DIFFICULT, BEFORE THE 9 TUESDAYS ARE ENDED.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

Father, help not only this generation, but all who walk in singleness to recognize our need to love and be loved. Cast out those fears that hold us back. When we fear love for fear of being hurt, help us learn trust. When we fear marriage because of looming divorce rates, help us to seek out Your wisdom and guidance. When we fear commitment for fear of what it might take from us, or demand of us, help us to rise above selfishness. Remind us not to enter marriage lightly for superficial, selfish, or materialistic reasons, and to take neither our partners nor our vows for granted. Remind us that "perfect love casteth out fear" and that when we place our love and trust in You, we can learn to reach out to others and love and trust them as well. May we become more aware of these lessons, that we might mature spiritually as a people. Amen

I pray to God that the Arab countries unite! They have to stand up together and make peace with the rest of the world. No fighting, only TRUE LOVE because this is the only savier! We do not hate Israel, they are like us. Arabs and Israeli's have so much in common, that is why they fight. We have to accept a compromise and stand by it, and show the rest of the world how it is to make REAL PEACE, it is not by signing documents, it's by talking to the people, it's by forgiving them for what has happened in the past, and starting a whole new page.
I pray that everyone learns to think like me, because we will combine our energies, and make a change. Because we can make a change.

I pray that people are in touch with God again, and this will make us valuble human beings who truely deserve this beautiful earth we live on.

From Racha Zeidan
With Love

Thank you God for this beautiful world!
I love you.

Love and marriage is what we make it ourselves. I was afraid of commitment because of being surrounded by divorces and unhappiness. Then I realized it has nothing to do with me. I don't have to be part of the statistics. Love and marriage is beautiful; sharing is the most wonderful feeling in the world. Building a life together; out of nothing... You can't describe it, you have to live it. Don't be afraid of commitment, but know how to work on it. There can be no such thing as pride in a marriage. Be honest, be open and you will have found your best friend!

Lord, I pray for love and acceptance of Your will in the youth today. Teach them dear Lord through myself and others that Your way is the path they should follow and that no other comes before You. While they look for love among each other, show that only through You will their ideal mate and friend be revealed. Help them to wait on you and seek your counsel. So many nights I wish and ask your forgiveness in mistakes I made because I didn't know to check in with You first. Now, I pray that they will realize, like I do, that You come first. Give us all the strength to follow Your will. Amen
