In this season of love and romance, love is truly in the air as we celebrate our love with our partners. We celebrate because love is the most beautiful thing in the world. We all want to experience falling in love and being loved. But, most of all, we want to stay in love, just like how God loves us – permanent and never-ceasing (1 Corinthians 13:8). The gift of love from God is for us to have someone with whom we can share a lifetime. While some have already met the love of your life, some might still be waiting for God to reveal them to you. But whether you are in a relationship or not, saying a prayer for love is a powerful action of surrendering our (future) relationships to God and a greater demonstration of our love to our loved ones. As JC Ryle once said, “If you want to know how much someone loves you, find out how much they pray for you”. Here are 25 prayers for love to help you seek God’s guidance in finding and keeping a solid and lasting relationship.
