Lord, I pray for your wisdom to date as a single Christian. Guide me every step of the way, I want to hear your voice clearly and not lean to my own understanding. I trust that your grace is sufficient for me however, if it is not your will, please remove the desire from me. Proverbs 19:2 states, he who hurries his footsteps errs. Therefore, I will not be anxious!
Heavenly Father, your Word warns against being unequally yoked with unbelievers; light and darkness cannot mix. Father, please protect me from ungodly relationships. Friendship with the world makes me an enemy with you. Don’t let me be deceived! “Evil companionship corrupt good morals.” 1 Corinthians 15:33. Lord, I do not want anything or anyone to separate me from my love for you! Even during dating, as a single Christian, I pray to remain focused on the things of you Lord and how to please you.
Guide me by your Holy Spirit. When you sent Samuel to ordain David as king, you stopped him from choosing David’s brother, (the wrong choice) and you said to him, "Don't judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. Likewise, keep me from basing my decisions on who I should date based on outward appearance only. Let my thoughts and desires honor you. I pray to flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace, and chose to keep my heart pure. I present my body as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to you, which is my spiritual worship to you. My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. I will not be conformed to this world. I will not be influenced by its thoughts and opinions of how I am to date. I will not be lured by the spirit of lust! I am sanctified; set aside for your good pleasure! I will glorify God with my body! As He is Holy so am I! Lord, I pray that you will always be my first love! Thank you for being concerned about everything that concerns me, including dating. In Jesus Christ name I pray. Amen!
Thank you, Holy Spirit, for giving me wisdom to manage money well. Forgive me for mismanaging my finances - having wrong motives, not tithing, giving offerings as I should and for allowing myself to become slave to the lender. If it is your will, let my creditors forgive the debt and/or give me a plan of action to satisfy my debts in full. All things are possible with you to those who believe. I believe! Father, your WORD says that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be removed, and be cast into the sea; and will not doubt in his heart, but will believe that those things which he says will come to pass; he WILL have whatsoever he says. I say to you, mountain of debt go, and be cast into the sea, in the name of Jesus! I am debt free… I owe no one anything but to love them! In Jesus' name, Amen!
Mark 11:23; Romans 13:8
Save me Lord from lying lips and from deceitful tongues. Take me out of the net they have hidden for me, for you are my refuge. Do not allow me to be deceived. Let my eyes see and my ears hear the truth, so that no evil plan devised against me shall prevail. Protect me by your blood Jesus! Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass by safely. I decree and I declare, whoever digs a pit for me will fall into it, and a stone will come back on them who starts it rolling. In Jesus' name, Amen!

Lord I pray for your guidance concerning my decision about _________. You are all knowing and all seeing, you are everywhere, at all times and you know which way I should take. Give me wisdom, I trust you to guide me. I never want to rely on what I think I know is right. Whether I turn to the right or to the left, let me hear your voice behind me, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Let my plans be established by seeking your advice. In Jesus' name, Amen.
James 1:5; Proverbs 3:5-6
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I repent for______. I receive my deliverance. I am no longer bound to the bondage caused by ______. I am covered and cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ. My sins are cast into the sea of forgetfulness. Jesus Christ died to set me free! I take authority over the powers of darkness. Satan will not steal from me through oppression/deception because of sin. God has given me power to tread upon serpents, scorpions and over all the evils of Satan and nothing by any means will hurt me! No weapon formed against me will prosper! The greater one, Jesus Christ dwells in me. I will not be deceived! God, you are a stronghold for the oppressed! By the power of your blood, I have been set free! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Philippians 2:10-11; Matthew 16:16-18; Luke 10:7; 1 John 4:4; Galatians 5:1; Isaiah 54:17 John 8:36; Psalms 9:9
In the name of Jesus Christ and by the power of His blood I banish depression from my life! I call fire from Heaven to melt heavy chains of darkness that are weighing me down in my soul - mentally, emotionally and physically! In the name of Jesus Christ, I rebuke the spirit of heaviness!
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me to bestow on my life a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair (heaviness). My soul is no longer cast down; I put my trust in God! He loves me and His joy is my strength! The LORD himself goes before me and will be with me; he will never leave me nor forsake me. I will not be afraid; nor be discouraged. Lord, when the righteous cry for help you hear and deliver them out of all their troubles. Deliver me! Answer me quickly, lest I be like those who go down to the pit of despair.
Every morning let me hear your steadfast love for me. Let me know that you are there with me and that I am never alone! You will keep my mind in perfect peace because it is dependent on you. You are a compassionate Father, who comforts me in all my troubles. Everything that I am concerned about that's causing anxiety in my life, I roll it over to you Lord. I put my hope in you, I praise you Lord. You are my Savior! You are my rock, my fortress and my deliverer!
Thank you for setting me free from the yokes that had me bound to depression. I am no longer a captive to the bondage of depression. My soul is no longer disturbed; I find rest in you alone LORD; my hope comes from you! In Jesus' name, Amen!
God's Prescription for Depression:
Proverbs 12:25 - Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down (depression), but a good (God's) word cheers it up.
2 Samuel 22:17-22 – He sent from above, he took me; he drew me out of many waters; (18) He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them that hated me: for they were too strong for me. (19) They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the Lord was my stay. He brought me forth also into a large place: he delivered me, because he delighted in me. The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness: according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me. For I have kept the ways of the Lord and have not wickedly departed from my God.
Psalm 34:18-19 – The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. (19) A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.
