Unequally yoked and dating
Here are 3 prayers for couples that are dating that I hope you can use or pass along to someone you know who’s still dating.
We can pray for things but we must be sure that it’s God’s will for our lives.
In this chapter we’re going to look at the godly way to find a husband or wife.
We’ll contrast the modern dating culture with godly dating practices.
Please know that I am seeking You and Your righteousness first and foremost above all things (Matt ), including the person I’m dating but the truth is, I can’t know what they’re like in their heart so help reveal to me if this person is who You know would be a good partner for life.
Help me to not rush into anything because I might live to regret it if once we’re married and the true person is revealed, I am bound to them for life.
I do not want to cause my partner to sin but it is so hard in this world because of the promiscuous nature of mankind.
I know that you have called us to live lives that are pleasing to you and to be holy as you have called us to be holy.
I do not want to take advantage of someone else just to satisfy my own flesh and in the mighty name of Jesus Christ I pray, amen.
I know it’s hard to be alone and live the single life but it’s better to be single than to be biblically bound to someone for life who turns out to be an unbeliever or one who is living in disobedience to God.
Some of the loneliest people I know are people who married someone that is radically different than who you thought they were.
For example, we know it is not God’s will that we be unequally yoked with non-believers.
This means that our best friends shouldn’t be unsaved people so how much more should we not be dating someone who’s not a Christian.
Paul wrote “Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers.
