A prayer for a boyfriend will help you gain God’s assistance and let your significant other know that you love and care for them.
Praying for a boyfriend is one of the ways you can show your love and support for him. Praying helps you focus on what they need and what you want God to do for them. Doing it together can also be a great way to bring you closer. Say a prayer for your boyfriend not only during difficulties but out of thanksgiving toward God. Below you will find more ways to pray for your boyfriend and how important it is to do so.
What is a Prayer for a Boyfriend?
A prayer for a boyfriend is a powerful way to show your support and concern for him. You must pray for each other, especially in a committed relationship. Our emotions are easily swayed and can lead us to think that everything is perfect the way it is when in reality, it’s not when God isn’t at the center of your relationship.
How to Pray for your Boyfriend?
Thanksgiving to God.
Before we ask God for anything, our prayers should always start with thanksgiving. Thank God for giving you and your boyfriend a new day to experience God’s grace, mercy, and love. Thank Him for His sovereignty over your relationship and for helping you build your relationship on God’s love and guidance.
Appeal to God for his protection.
Pray for your boyfriend’s safety; ask God to watch over him as he drives to work or when he’s out hanging and playing with his friends. Though we never really know how our day will go, we still ask that God guide and protect you and your boyfriend from potential harm or accident (Psalm 91:3-7).
Ask for guidance in the achievement of his success.
When asking for guidance in achieving success, we must remember Proverbs 3:5-6. Pray that your boyfriend trusts in God and does not lean on his strengths because our capabilities are minute compared to God’s leading and guidance (Philippians 4:13). It is also a good idea to ask God to help your boyfriend make good connections with his workmates and superiors.
Pray for a stronger relationship.
We must place God at the center of any relationship and prioritize Him. No relationship is perfect, no matter how compatible you think you two are with each other. It is also important to remember that neither of you can complete the other nor fix the other’s shortcomings. Only God can completely change a person because only through Him can we know true contentment.
So you must pray for a stronger relationship (Ephesians 4:2-3). Pray for a relationship that is founded and nourished by God’s love. Ask God to strengthen your ties to honor and glorify Him.
Ask for your desired special petition.
And lastly, you can pray for your desired special petition, like asking God to help your boyfriend know Him more. Or ask God to help you and your boyfriend direct your focus toward Him so God remains at the center of your relationship.

5 Bible Verses to Inspire Your Boyfriend
Song of Solomon 7:10
“I belong to my beloved, and his desire is for me.”
Though this verse is more applicable to married couples, to a certain extent, it can also be appropriate for girlfriends towards their boyfriends. ‘I am my beloved’ can be likened to the girlfriend’s commitment and loyalty towards her relationship with her boyfriend. In return, the boyfriend’s desire is towards his girlfriend only, meaning his dedication and loyalty is towards her only.
“He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord.”
Proverbs 18:22 tells us that whoever finds a wife gains favor from the Lord. As Christians, dating isn’t a form of leisure but a way to find the companion we’ll spend the rest of our lives with. A wife or husband is a gift from God, and according to Proverbs 18:22, a spouse helps us remain humble and selfless. They also help us with our journey through life.
Before looking for a lifetime companion, we must remember that this verse only counts if our spouse is a gift from God. In a world where people marry just about anyone and then get a divorce when the spark is no longer there, finding a spouse sent from God is a blessing.
1 Thessalonians 3:12
“May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you.”
God’s love for us is endless and abundant, so it is only fitting to love others as much as we are loved. Though there will be times when it will be difficult to love our boyfriend, we should still choose to be patient and understanding because that is what Jesus has done and will continue to do for us. We must remind ourselves that despite our shortcomings, God did not restrict His love for us but continued to shower us generously.
“And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”
The ‘love’ that Paul pertains to is not the commercialized version of the attachment, where it’s all rainbows and butterflies. True love comes from God, a committed affection and respect for the other person. It is an unconditional type of love, one that doesn’t change, nor does it judge. And it is this type of love that binds all virtues together. It is also this unconditional love that we should convey to others, like our boyfriends.
“Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.”
As Christians, we know the power of words and how they could potentially encourage or harm another person. We also know it is better to speak the truth than trick someone with lies. But some facts are too challenging to say especially when it’s someone you know and care about.
So when it comes down to that, choose to speak the truth in love. Aside from saying it gently, you must also convey that the reason behind the harsh reality is that you care for them. Say it in a way that you’re not reprimanding them but that you are concerned that if they make that mistake to someone else, they wouldn’t be as understanding and take offense.
Why is Praying for a Boyfriend Important?
On our own, it would only be possible to achieve our goals and aspirations. It’s why we have a support group in our church called an accountability group that helps look out for our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Praying for your boyfriend has the same effect; we’re helping in looking out for his mental and spiritual well-being. It’s your way of showing support for your boyfriend and looking out for and caring for his well-being.
Praying for your boyfriend is also an invitation for God to come into your relationship.
Helping your boyfriend tell God his concerns and worries teaches you both to trust in Him alone. It also reminds you that neither can you fix the other’s problems or shortcomings; only through God’s grace and mercy can you completely heal from your wounds.
A lot of people underestimate the power of prayer. Praying for your boyfriend is a great way to show your love and concern for them. The beautiful prayers above are examples you can use for any situation and modify them however you want. We hope you’ll take this moment to pray for your boyfriend so that he will be equipped with God’s love and protection.
Have faith and pray for your boyfriend and relationship continuously. God will guide your boyfriend and your relationship toward success and happiness as long as you follow His leadership.
