Over the years of being single, I collected some several scriptures that I would read/pray.
Isaiah 55:11 says that God’s word shall not return void but it shall prosper in the thing for which it is sent (that’s the abbreviated version). God’s word is as effective for prayer as it is for knowing God. There are times and seasons in our life when we must remind ourselves and God (not that he forgets) what He said; remind Him of His promises.
Whether married or single, as people we often misunderstand God. We have a flawed view of Him. God is not “out to get us”. He is not waiting for us to make a mistake so He can pitch us into hell. In general (meaning His overall personality) is not angry. He is not doing things to you to frustrate you or cause you grief. Guess what? Here is some Good News! God loves you and wants you to be happy. He came to give you abundant life…not lame life. Having said this, God is not going to send you a loser to date/marry. He isn’t going to say, “Because of all the things you’ve done (sins), this is the best I can do for you.” God isn’t like that. He has good things for you. These good things are based on how Good He is, not how good you are. You just have to be at the right place at the right time, doing what He is telling you to do. Do not worry about this too much, if you love Him and live your life for Him, He will help you be where you are suppose to be.
The following are scriptures I read and prayed over the years. These scriptures encouraged me and helped me stay focused (yes, I still made mistakes and did some things that I regret, but God still loves me and He still lead me into the abundant future He has planned for me).
Ladies, you can also read Isaiah 54.
You open Your hand
And satisfy the desire of every living thing.
If you desire to be married, if it in your deepest of hearts you desire a mate, then God will satisfy that desire.
Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.
I Corinthian 7:2
Search from the book of the LORD, and read:
Not one of these shall fail;
Not one shall lack her mate.
For My mouth has commanded it, and His Spirit has gathered them.
The LORD will perfect that which concerns me;
Your mercy, O LORD, endures forever;
Do not forsake the works of Your hands.
Bring my soul out of prison,
That I may praise Your name;
The righteous shall surround me,
For You shall deal bountifully with me.
