Does God answer prayers about relationships? I am sure this is a question you have asked at one point in your Christian life concerning relationships.
Most people who ask whether God can answer their prayers concerning their relationship are usually people who are having relationship problems or looking to be in love.
One thing you need to understand is that for God to answer the prayer concerning your relationship, you need to know what God’s will is concerning the relationship you want to be in.
Most people are frustrated with their relationships because they don’t understand God’s will concerning relationships nor do they consult God as to whether the relationship they want to be in with a particular person is right for them.
You need to understand that the most important relationship you can ever have here on earth is the one with God as only that relationship will never fail you and meet the greatest needs and desires of your heart that human relationships just cannot meet.
With that said, let us answer our question today,” does God answer prayers about relationships,” to help you know whether God answers prayers concerning relationships with references to bible verses in both the old testament and the new testament.
Does God Answer Prayers On Relationships?
The answer to that question is twofold, which is yes, and no. Yes, in the sense that He can answer your prayers concerning your relationships if they are in line with His will.
No in the sense that He will not answer your prayer concerning your relationship if that relationship isn’t right for you or in line with God’s will and purpose for your life which is more important than the relationship you are trying to make work.
If you have a problem with your relationship and would like to get it resolved, you may be wondering if God answers prayers about relationships.
Yes, God does answer prayers about relationships if they are in line with His will. There are many reasons why He answers our prayers when we pray for help with a relationship.
One reason is that God wants us to have an intimate relationship with Him first before we can have any relationship with any humans. When we get close to God through prayer, He wants to draw us into His presence.
Having an intimate relationship with God is what will set the foundation of all the happy and healthy deep fulfilling human relationships we all desire and long for in our hearts.
Remember, when it comes to relationships and marriage, God wants you to have a happy marriage with a person who truly loves you with Christ-like love that is selfless.
Nevertheless, this will only happen if God is in the center of your relationship or marriage and if the person you consider to be your future wife or husband is God’s will for your life, and remember God’s timing is always the best (Ecclesiastes 3:11). So, no need to rush.
In short, God will give the green light to go ahead with the relationship with a particular person if that person is God’s will for you as God wants the best for you with the person you intend to spend the rest of your life with.
No, If It’s Not His Will For Your Life.
At times, God may choose not to answer your prayer request about being in a particular relationship with that person as He knows that person you want to be in a relationship with isn’t the right person for you.
You may be wondering why your relationship with a particular person you so wanted to spend the rest of your life with didn’t work out despite doing everything right on your part and praying or fasting for that relationship to work out.
In such situations, it’s easy to blame God as to why the relationship you disparately wanted to have didn’t work out despite all the prayers you made to Him concerning that relationship so that it works out but never worked out anyway in the end.
However, you need to understand as Isaiah 55:8,9 tells us that God’s thoughts are not our thoughts nor are our ways His ways which are higher than ours.
You need to understand that God knows better than you do and that there is a reason why He doesn’t want you to be in a relationship with a particular person for your own protection.
Bear in mind that only God knows the true nature of the heart of every person and unlike you who can easily be blinded by outward appearances, God sees the true nature of the heart of that person you want to marry or spend your life with.
God Says No To Protect You.
If that person isn’t right for you, God would rather have you break up with that person and suffer a temporary heartbreak rather than being miserable with the wrong person you initially thought was right for you for the rest of your life.
Once you understand this, you will be grateful further down the road when you meet the right person who was meant for you as to why your past relationship never worked out.
Remember, God wants you to have a happy relationship or marriage here on earth but this can only be possible if you do things God’s ways when it comes to selecting a life partner you plan to spend the rest of your life with.
Choosing the right partner requires the guidance of the Holy Spirit because there are so many people who pretend during courtship and only show their true colors when you say,” I do,” to them.
If you are not led by the Holy Spirit in choosing the right mate for marriage, you will be led by the flesh and choose based on outward appearances and not the inward character of a person.
Many people aren’t experiencing the love they deserve in relationships or marriages because they didn’t ask for the guidance of the Holy Spirit in choosing a mate that will truly love them with Christ-like selfless love 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 talks about.
This is why we have so many heartbreaks and broken marriages in society today as most people don’t understand what true love is but are led by their lustful desires or feelings of the flesh that they mistake for love.
How Do I Know If God Wants Me To Be With Someone?
How do I know if God wants me to be with someone? It’s a question I’ve asked myself many times. The answer is that it depends on the person, and what their personality traits are.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think about a person who might be right for you? Well, for me it’s usually their personality and godly character implying that the person I want to be with must be saved and born again.
Do they seem like the kind of a person who would bring out the best in me? Would I enjoy spending time with them? Would we have fun together? And most importantly, what is their relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ, and is it sound?
Moreover, it’s important to remember that God does not want us to date or court people just because they are popular or have money; He wants us to date people because we would make each other happy and love each other the way God does.
Sometimes God will ask us to court people who don’t match up with our current preferences so that we can learn more about our character through trial and error (1 Corinthians 12:26) as well as make us understand what true love is all about.
God wants us to be with people who are good for us and help us fulfill His purpose or destiny for our lives, not people that will sabotage His purpose for our lives.
The Bible says that marriage is intended to be between a man and a woman (Genesis 2:24), so if you are in a relationship that doesn’t feel right, it’s probably because something is missing in that relationship.
If you’re not sure whether God wants you to be with someone, ask Him whether that person you want to be with is His will and purpose for your life so that you don’t make mistakes and suffer for the rest of your life.
