Bride of Christ Prayer

Bride of Christ Prayer

Father in the name of Jesus Christ, I pray that You would help me to live a Godly life as your bride – a life that is holy, sanctified and set aside for Your purpose, and prepared for Your good work.

I confess Your word, that as your bride, my life is crucified with Christ, and in Christ I live; yet it’s not I that live, but it’s Christ that lives in and through me; and the life which I now live in the flesh as your bride, I live it by faith, power and strength of the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Father, You did not leave us alone, You have sent us the Holy Spirit to be our Helper. I pray therefore, that You would fellowship with me daily through the Holy Spirit.

I pray that while I am single, may You be the One to whom I am married. Lord, when I get lonely, may You, through the Holy Spirit, be the One who comforts my heart. May You be unto me as a close friend that sticks closer than any brother. When I need someone to talk to, may I also find comfort, as well as pleasure in talking to You. And as I talk to You, may You speak continually back to my heart, and may You be my daily companion who keeps me company, as You walk with me each and every day.

I pray that You would give me Godly friends and acquaintances that will be an encouragement to me to live for, love and serve You with all of my heart, soul, strength, and might. And, keep me away from those who would draw my heart away from You and draw me into idleness, worldliness, or ungodly situations or relationships.

I pray that You would help me to keep watch of the evil one in my life. Father, as your bride, help me not to be drawn or lured into sexual temptation, and keep me from falling into fornication, adultery or any other sexual sin, immorality or perversion.

By the power and strength of the Holy Spirit, I pray that You would also keep me from each and every satanic spirit of seduction. May You help me to flee youthful lust, keep me from compromising situations, and help me to avoid the very appearance of evil.

Father, help me to not allow the devil to conform my mind to see the single Christian life as one that is boring, incomplete or unfulfilling. I pray that through Christ Jesus, You help me to see my life as joyous, exciting and fully complete. I pray that You would fill every empty and lonely place of my heart with excitement in You and Your work. And may You always be the center of my joy, as You strengthen and renew my heart in You each and every day.

I pray that You would help me to be continually occupied doing Your work and Your will. Help me not to allow my mind to be consumed with the desire or want for a mate, but rather, consumed with You, Your Word, doing Your will, and pleasing You. And help me to keep my eyes, as well as my heart and mind stayed upon You.

I thank You, Lord, that my heart safely rests in You, Your provisions and Your loving arms of care. And may You continually be all of my fulfillment, my desire and completeness.

In the name of Jesus Christ, as your bride, I pray, AMEN.
