Prayer for Strength
Jesus, my Savior, being in a long-distance relationship is hard. It’s hard to trust, to ignore doubts and let go of fears. You say to be strong and courageous. You say that I should not tremble or be dismayed because You are with me wherever I go. I know that, Jesus, but please help my unbelief. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit in my loneliness. Comfort me whenever I have a fight. Help me feel Your presence and comfort my needy soul. Amen.
Prayer to Defeat Temptation
God of Heaven’s Armies, You say that no temptation will overtake me except what is common to mankind. You say that You will not allow me to be tempted beyond what I can bear. Help me, God. It is difficult to be so many miles away from my loved one, unable to see his/her face and feel his/her warm embrace. Forge my strength against temptations of the flesh in his/her absence. Convict me with peace about the faithfulness of my loved one. Drive out jealousy, fear of the unknown, and lack of trust from my mind. For both of us, I pray that when we are tempted, You provide a way out so that we can endure the temptation and move beyond it, remaining faithful to each other. Amen.
Prayer for Patience
God of Mercy and Love, give me the patience to endure the distance between myself and my loved one. You say that love is patient, and I am struggling to see an end to the distance that separates me from my loved one. Keep our love alive and strong while we have to be apart. Teach us how to love like You love Your children. Teach us to bear all things, believe all things, hope all things, and endure all things. With love, I know that our love will conquer the miles that separate us. Thank You for the blessing of this relationship, Father. I pray that it will forever be kept in love. Amen.
Prayer for a Future
God my Great Provider, I thank You for my long-distance relationship. I place it in Your righteous hands and ask that You guide both me and my partner in our relationship. You know that plans that You have for us, Your plans are to prosper us and not to harm us, plans to give us hope and a future. I pray that if this relationship is in line with Your will, that You will show us what to do for the long-term health of our relationship. Lead us in our actions so we can protect this blessing we have received from You in each other. Direct us so that we may fulfill the plans that You have for our lives. Amen.
Prayer to Grow
Almighty and Everlasting Jesus, I give You thanks and I lift up Your precious name. You tell me to put away anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from my mouth. You tell me to be kind, humble, meek and patient. I try, dear Jesus! But I am so far from perfect. I have to get better at this and mature for my long-distance relationship to work. Help me to become mature in You, to pray with all my heart, and to adopt Your spirit of forgiveness. Mold me into Your image, and make me Your vessel. Amen.
