Many Christian singles have asked us how to pray for their online dating match. Our ingenious answer is simple: Pray for your online dating match just like you would pray for anything else in life.
Some Christians are confused when it comes to praying for a dating match because they are not certain how proactive they should be. For example, one person wanted to know as they pray for a dating match whether it would be okay to use one of the online Christian dating services. Are they still waiting on God if they do so? Ultimately, how you approach dating and courtship are personal decisions between you and the Lord.
How to Pray for a Dating Match with Faith
Our bible verse of the day is found in Colossians 4:2:
-Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful-
When we are praying for our dating match, or anything else for that matter, Paul gives us several prayer tips.
- Be Devoted-The meaning of the word here (proskartereite) suggests a determination not to give in or give up until you see God move. So let me ask you a question. Have you given up praying for your dating match?
- Be Watchful-The word here (gregoreo), implies that when we pray, we should actually expect God to give us some tangible answer. Imagine that!
- Be Thankful-This last characteristic of prayer implies a step of faith showing thankfulness for future provisions.
If you are a single Christian seeking your dating match, puting these prayer tips into action will help you keep focused our Lord, who is able to do more than we can ever ask or think.
