People who are single and/or are choosing to be single, are in need of support. It is easy to wonder what is wrong or ask a lot of ‘why’ questions. God is the author of our stories and His will for us is to give us a hope, and a future. It is important to encourage single people to choose God and His will for them despite cultural rules or voices that say otherwise.
Possible things to pray for:
·      Patience for God’s will to unfold in their lives
·      Strength to stay pure and betrothed to Jesus
·      Choosing to focus on God’s story instead of culture/society’s story
·      Ask of joy and peace during this season/for this choice
·      Trust in God’s leading within you
