Dating & Relationships


Dear Jesus,

Thank you for being our God, our father, our saviour from death, heartache, destruction, guilt, everything that sin brings.

Thank you for your love, that we don’t deserve.

For this love, that you are, you deserve all the praises.

I have a personal request.

Your word says that a congenial spouse comes straight from you.

If and whoever you wish to unite any of us with in marriage and life, give us the wisdom to know he/she is right for us.

Help us all to become suitable people. Suitable in your eyes.

Whatever you desire to teach us, help us to understand what we are being taught.

In your Name,



Dear Jesus,

I want to let you know about something that has been on my mind for a while.

I am not going to worry about it.

This relationship that I have formed with (name), please show us that you have approved of this union.

How do we know that you have approved?

What can we learn from this? How do you desire us to be towards each other?

In your Name,



Dear Jesus,

Thank you for your guidance.

Lord, it says in your bible  that it is good to be single. 

We should desire singleness more over marriage.

But lord, some of us do desire marriage and much more a relationship that you are pleased with.

Give us wisdom in this. In making wise choices in the dating relationships we form.

Remind us to always ask your opinion on all matters concerning our relationships.

In your Name,



Dear Jesus,

Its a brand new week. I didn’t even notice it was coming. 

Thank you for a relaxing break with friends and family.

Friends and family are very important to me. Some of us value friends and family very highly.

But some of us find it difficult to put it into action, including me.

What practical things can I do to keep in touch with my loved ones? To show them my thanks.

And where and who do I put that energy into?

You’ve made it clear in the bible that we should be thoughtful about what we give and who we give to.

For not everyone will appreciate it.

In your Name, 



Dear Jesus,

Thank you for the women and men in my life.

Thank you for making us male and female and making us so different.

Each beautiful, each with our very own set of ways and qualities that make us a man or a woman.

I heard someone say that there is so much potential in being wife and a mother.

I want to be a wife. I want to be a mother. Lord is this your will?

In your Name,



Dear Jesus,

Thank you for creating family.

Its a little bit of heaven on earth for sure.

To be able to call strangers family and treat them the same way we do our own families is a blessing straight from you.

Thank you for own families, who take care of us, who are so generous and provide for us the way that you do. 
I want to see others as family dispite the painful experiences I have.

Help us not to lose that passion and desire.

In your Name,



Dear Jesus,

I am single. I have no husband, no wife, no boyfriend, no girlfriend.

I would really like to meet someone, get married, have children of my own.

But now I am single, and you have said that it is good to be content in whatever situation we are in.

To handle our circumstances and deal with them as they are and not how we would wish them to be.

So Lord, help all of us who are single to enjoy our singleness, to experience and learn as much as we can learn in our singleness.

Lord thank you for helping me this far.

In your Name,



Dear Jesus,

You are so worthy to be given all the praises.

No-one else should be given that honour except for you, not me, not anyone.

You provide our every need, you are always willing to listen in on to us. You are always available to us.

Nothing we do separates your living care from us because you are a good friend.

I find it very hard to trust people and to trust wisely. Its an art I am learning to use sensibly. 

I understand that not everyone can be trusted and sometimes that is hard to understand. And likewise I am learning there are some people that I can put my confidence in and that is also hard to put into practise.

But help us all to know that you can always be trusted.

In your Name,



Dear Jesus,

Lord I want talk about a sensitive subject.

I want to talk about sex.

Lord, you know the challenges many of us face when it comes to sex. Especially for people who are single.

Lord what are your views on the subject?

What do you think about sex? Is it ok to kiss? Is it ok to foreplay? Is it ok to do these things with my friend?

Lord you know each any one of our thresholds and what we can handle.

So please help us to distingiush between what is ok and what not ok.

Thank you.

In your Name,



Dear Jesus,

When I comes to intimate relationships I know you only want the very best for us.

You want us all to be happy and enjoy fullfilling relationships and not ones that only undermine and hold us back.

Lord help me to understand what is right in a relationship, what is acceptable and what is for good.

Lord I know how hurtful some actions can be to you and my relationship with you.

So help us to determine what is right especially at this crucial time.

In your Name,



Dear Jesus,

I am single and I am really longing to meet someone who you think is good for me.

Lord, I believe I am ready to take this step into dating.

Thank you for helping me make that step and preparing me to do it confidently.

But I am constant in need of your help and advice when making my connections.

Continue to guide me in this Lord.

Thank you.

In your Name,



Dear Jesus,

I am so grateful for the people that you have given me the provilege to meet and know.

They all bring something so unique to the table of life. 

Thank you for making us all so different and guiding us in such a way that we grow up to be very unique individuals.

Whatever it is you grown us to be so far, I pray that we will impact someone else in a very positive way.

Even if it is just one person.

In your Name,



Dear Jesus,

Meeting someone is a beautiful thing. 

Your word talks about love and the intimate encounter between a man and a woman.

I am grateful that you specialise in matching people together.

And I am grateful that you help us to choose for ourselves who is right for us and who is not.

In your Name,



Dear Jesus,

Relationships can be complicated.

Whats right for one person isn’t right for another.

What one person should be investing in another person should be investing in another.

Teach us what is important in our situations single, dating or married. 

It says in your bible that it is good to be single because we can invest our time in pleasing you but to be married also means investing our time in pleasing another. 

I believe both of these things are beautiful.

In your Name,
