From Your Treasured Daughter

Found this prayer in one Christian site for single and I want to share it with you guys. This is a good reminder for single persons like me. Though there are a lot of temptations everywhere but if we are connected and holding on with the Lord, then we can able to stand straight and firm. I always says it to the teens in our church and even to the "not so teens" - NEVER COMPROMISE YOUR FAITH. Circumstances and people will test you but be strong not to disconnect yourself to the Maker. 
Being single is happy and free but it takes hardships and courage to deny all what this world is offering, but it does not mean that you can't. We can, as long as you are in the presence of the Lord, all things are possible. Pray fervently. Stay away from people and places that will forsake you into sin. Be friends with someone who will lead and accompany to you to the right path - to Jesus.

You know this road isn’t easy for me. You know my heart’s desire; to love and be loved. You’ve seen where I’ve come from in life, and you see where I’m going but in this moment, waiting on you is just so hard.
I’m surrounded by a culture pushing me into ideas and ways that I know don’t align up with your will for me. My heart tries to pursue, yet you tell me to wait.
I am your cherished daughter, and I know the plans you have for me are great. But I pray right now, in this moment you fill me with your peace.
Help me to become fully satisfied in you, before you bring my Boaz to me. Help me to trust the process of becoming the woman you desire for me to be.
You see my heart’s full potential. You know that when I love, I love deeply and when I fall, I fall hard.
Father save my heart for the man you have set aside for me. Prepare me to be the kind of wife he needs me to be.
I want to be a wife after your own heart.
Choose to fully chase after you, God. When you bring along the man I am meant to marry I will not stop chasing you. We will chase after you together. We will be each other’s helpmate.
We will love each other purely and deeply, but we will love you the most. We will constantly strive to keep you at the center of our lives and marriage, for I know you are the glue that will hold us together.
When my Boaz comes along I will not forget my first love. I will not forget the one who loved me first, and loved me enough to give me a godly man who will love, cherish, and treasure the woman that I am.
While I am here waiting on you, I will choose to serve. I will choose to chase after your heart. I will choose to embrace all that you have called me to be. Wherever you go, I’ll go. Wherever you stay, I will stay.
I will leave the world behind to chase after the God of my heart. I will trust in you, even when the road seems hard and I feel like I can’t take another step.
I will let you mold me into the wife you have called me to be. I will love, cherish, honor, and treasure my future spouse. I will rely on the covenant of marriage and your strength to bring me through when my emotions try to lead me astray.
I thank you for all that you are, and all that you are preparing me to be. I thank you that I can trust you with every single detail of my life, that everything that matters to me matters to you.
I know that in your perfect timing, when you see fit, you will bring us both together to love and serve you. Thank you for loving me.
