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.

Lord I know it is the devil who puts fear into the hearts of people of my generation. It is easy to feel that love and devotion take too much work, and to take the easy route of temporary flings and sin. I pray that you would reveal to my peers everywhere the joy and lasting hapiness that comes through sharing every part of yourself with the one person you will become a part of, through marriage. I pray that you would cast the fear off their eyes so that they may see the awesome possibilities that lay before them if only they could believe and discipline themselves to the ways of love. I pray for strength, integrity, love, joy, peace, and enlightenment for these people, in Jesus' name, Amen.

Father God I pray that all of us here in this troubled world learn to appreciate You and the love You have for us, and by essence learn to love and appreciate themselves and each other. I myself need this prayer as well. I pray for healing of emotional wounds and past hurts inflicted by family, friends and past/present mates. I pray that we all find our soulmates and live our lives abundantly, the way that You and Jesus intended it to be. Father i express my love for you and thank you for being here for me through all of lifes experiences-good and bad. In Jesus' Holy name, Amen.

Father heal the hurts of so many of our children who have not seen a "single" comitted relationship, but have watched their own parents fall apart. Give them new hope,and a strong courage to turn the tide towards faithful, true commitment. we trust in you. They are yours.

8/6/2003 14:17

Mother Within and Mother Without, see your children all about. Help your children to begin to let healthy, adult love in. So mote it be. :)

8/11/2003 10:07

Dear Lord - guide and bless us adults so that we may better teach, by example, what is commitment and love. Lord, forgive me my divorce 6 years ago and let me be ale to continue to talk with my now 16 year old son, such that he will benefit from my mistakes and still reach for love. Also Lord, please show me your will with Tom, who has lost his first wife to murder and his second to divorce. Help him to overcome his fear and pain... and if it your will that we be together or apart, let it so be. I pray this in your name.

9/8/2003 11:12

I pray for marriage. I am divorced. It the laws of men would make it so that divorce takes 5 years instead of one, I would still be married. May that true love come into your heart. When you marriage young, you don't really know what commitment means. When you are divorced, you learn just what it meant and that you gave up marriage for nothing better.

11/15/2003 03:44

Lord and Lady, you who have spent eternity together, please help all of us to be courageous, wise, and strong when facing matters of love and commitment. We so often get caught up in the little things, or become afraid to do the work that makes a relationship worthwhile. So many people are jumping from new relationship to new relationship without growth or depth of happiness. Families are growing up shattered as a normal state of being. We love You, You love all of us, help us to love each other...please?

GOD says its better to marry than to burn. So I pray that the lord would send down to every young person seeking a mate, whatever the lord has in store for us.

In JESUS name!!!

I pray that with God's help, I can rid myself of the fear of commitment. I've suffered in past with a distructive marriage and suffered abuse and I am afraid to commit now. I have met a wonderful man and would love to spend the rest of my life with him, but I am just afraid to give my whole self to him. I pray that God will help us to work this out. I thank God for helping me to become more spiritual, and come "Home" to my church after years of absence.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. - Proverbs 3:5-6
If the Lord had not been on our side when people rose up against us, they would have swalloded us alive because of their burning anger against us..Blessed be the Lord, who did not let their teeth tear us apart! We escaped like a bird from a hunter's trap. The trap is broken, and we are free! Our help is from the Lord, who made the heavens and the earth. - Psalm 124:2-3, 5-8

8/17/2004 00:11

I pray that we all might know love- that there are many of many different ages that do not know love. That you might make us strong and that you will lead us to our spouces and not be afraid of the greatness and safty that comes from having a family. We love you so that we might be able to love others. HELP. JML

I pray that since I have found the love of my life I will not be jealous but understanding and to always remember love covers of multitude of sins. I pray that God changes my heart and the heart of my beloved. I pray for love and joy and the continuance of God's love and grace on my and others lives. I pray that he continues to help me through life's journeys.

5/16/2005 16:07

I have entered a new relationship, and I pray that I may treat him with respect and love in all things every day. If he is meant to be my husband, it will work out. In the meantime, please let us both show each other that we care and help us lift each other up. Relationships are meant to enrich our lives and make us better - let us always remember that.

I do pray for our youth in every situation they face today! They have so much more to deal with now then even 10 years ago. I just ask God to lead the young people, who want His guidance and protection, in the direction of the purpose He has made them for. I interceed,in prayer, for those who don't know the Lord. I interceed for their families who do not know how to show them or teach them the right way of life. As I do with my small children, I cover today's youth with the annointing and protection of God that they will be open and committed to doing and living the way He would have them live. Our youth are in trouble because the enemy has deceived us all. I wage war on the enemy on behalf of our children at any age. We must band together, as believers, and fight together in the name of Jesus! Thank you for this important prayer circle. I love this one because it will benefit my children as well!

I am 19 and want so badly to be married. I pray for myself, and I pray for my friends and family that are unmarried. May eveyone have someone to help them through the worst of times.

8/1/2005 12:24

I pray for those who are currently married: Be good to one another and remember to do right by each other. Be loving and kind, and serve as a good example to your children.

For those who are engaged: I pray that you are marrying a person you respect and love, and that you enter into marriage for the right reasons. Life will not be a bowl of cherries, so I pray for your strength and continued love during bad times as well as good.

For those (like me), still waiting for the right spouse: I pray that we may know ourselves well and be open to the right person when he/she comes along. I pray that God brings us together with the person who is right and who will help us become better humans. May we know long, lasting love someday.

I can't believe I posted this prayer more than four years ago. A lot has happened in my life in that time. I am still searching for the right person with whom to share my life, and I know that God has someone wonderful in mind for me. I just pray that I am ready for him when he comes, and that I continue to count my blessings in the meantime. When I do meet him, I pray for a beautiful relationship based on trust, love and respect. I also continue to pray for everyone who is seeking a special person in their life. May we all know the joy of love in our lives, and may we all grow spiritually and emotionally through our healthy relationships.

5/1/2006 23:05

Father God I ask that You would bless our children and help them to let go of their fear of love and commitment. That You would allow them to love and respect themselves more so that they may share that love with others. Open their hearts and minds to love and commitment and to honer You with marriage in Jesus name I pray Amen

May the Maiden bless those who are young with loving families, so they may learn what love is. May Her hands guide them as they experience their first loves, and their first losses. May those under Her care understand that marriage is a solemn promise, to be neither rushed into nor shied away from.

I humbly ask that those people who see this circle to pray for my fiance and I. We're young, but we are happy!

2/18/2007 20:51

I pray that our generation will find love, and care for it. I pray that they will happily marry and be happily married to their soulmates. I pray that we all find the love and happiness we need in our lives. Amen.
