Prayers for Love

What good prayers to find love are there? Is there a miracle prayer to bring back someone you love? What prayers can you recite to be lucky in love? Is there a prayer to keep your soulmate?

So many questions when it comes to love. They all reflect the desire we all share to have an influence on others and get what we want in love. The short answer is: no, there is no magic love prayer. However, prayer can help you, especially with your love and emotion-related issues. When you offer your doubt and your pain to the Lord, you are allowing Him to work through you, and give you a new insight on life. Open your heart, and make room for real, true love. 

So, no matter what situation you are in today regarding your love life, turn to the Lord and pray!

Protection Prayer for a Couple

Song of Songs: the Blessing of Lovers

“I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine”

(Song of Songs 6:3)

“Place me like a seal over your heart,

like a seal on your arm;

for love is as strong as death,

its jealousy unyielding as the grave.

It burns like blazing fire,

like a mighty flame.

Many waters cannot quench love;

rivers cannot sweep it away.

If one were to give

all the wealth of one’s house for love,

it would be utterly scorned.”

(Song of songs 8:6-7)

Prayers for Broken Hearts

Gods’ love - a divine, pure and sincere love - can heal your every wound. Leave your pain in the hands of Christ, and let Him comfort you: Jesus loves us as we are, as Mother Teresa reminds us in the following prayer.

Prayer by Mother Teresa: I Thirst for You

“I stand at the door of your heart, day and night. Even when you are not listening, even when you doubt it could be Me, I am there, waiting for even the smallest signal of your response, even the smallest suggestion of an invitation that will permit Me to enter.

I want you to know that each time you invite Me, I do come always, without fail. Silent and invisible I come, yet with a power and a love most infinite. I come with My mercy, with My desire to forgive and heal you, with a love for you that goes beyond your comprehension.

A love in each detail, so grand like the love I have received from My Father

I come longing to console you and give you strength, to lift you up and bind all your wounds. I bring you My light, to dispel your darkness and all your doubts. I come with My power, that allows me to carry your every burden: with My grace, to touch your heart and transform your life. I come with My peace, to calm your soul.

I know everything about you. Even the hairs of your head I have counted. Nothing in your life is unimportant to Me. I know every one of your problems. I know your needs and your worries. Yes,  I know all your sins. But I tell you again: I love you, not for what you have or ceased to do, I love you for you, for the beauty and the dignity My Father gave you by creating you in His own image. It is a dignity you have often forgotten, a beauty you have tarnished by sin. But I love you as you are.”

Prayers for Lost Loves

Being broken up, separated, unrequited love… so many ways to feel hurt during your life! You might wonder “is it worth it to hope? Do I have to change who I am to attract my loved one? Or can I just accept and respect their freedom?” Prayer is a great way to learn discernment, and find the courage to face your challenges.

A Prayer for Protection and Perfect Love

“Oh Holy Spirit, God of Love, thank you for filling my heart with love, that I may offer it to You. 

Help me feel perfect love for my neighbour, especially for my close ones.

Make me a faithful believer, a generous, modest, sweet, humble, and trusting person, able to govern my own emotions, to conciliate and adapt to the unknown. 

Do not let me think of myself first, or do things for my own interest. 

Open my heart wide to the world; let me find pleasure in doing good. Remove the stains of jealousy, pride, vanity and narcissism. 

Soothe my anger: may I control my irritability and susceptibility.

Heal me from impatience: may I close my mouth to constant criticism or complaining when I am disappointed in others, when they reject me, judge me, or forget about me. 

Most Holy Spirit, let me endure it all, let me feel pain to understand and learn to go through it. 

Teach me to be righteous, to look out for my neighbour: do not let me hurt them, or judge them, but let me forgive them, even when they do me wrong. 

I do not want to hold on to grudges when I am offended, I want to feel happy for those who succeed better than me, and rejoice when truth prevails. 

Holy Spirit, teach me to believe in the goodness of others, to hope and trust in it, to not give in to despair, to love Christ, who helps me welcome others with kindness and compassion. 

Oh Mother Mary, Queen of Peace, make me an instrument of reconciliation;

Glory be to God the Father, who gives me the Spirit of Life, 

Glory be to Jesus Christ, who fills me with the Spirit of Love,

Glory be to the Holy Spirit, who works through me to bring my faith in the Almighty to fruition;

Amen, Hallelujah!”
