Don’t let dating websites and friends fool you, God is the ultimate match-maker.

Looking for true love can be quite a tiring job to say the least. And it’s something that some of us are blessed to find quickly. On the other hand, there are those of us who have to search far and wide for Mr. or Mrs. Right, running into a few unpleasant characters along the way. Yes, the dating world is not an easy one to be apart of. And after a countless number of disappointments, it can lead to bouts of loneliness but most of all, desperation.

Memberships to online dating services start to look more and more appealing to you when before using them was not even a thought in your mind. You have even found yourself taking your friends up on blind date offers that you would have normally shut down with the quickness at the mere suggestion of them. Never thought you would resort to these routes a day in your life right?

Not to mention the fact that during our droughts, we start to seek advance from the worst possible sources ever. Since when did players and “the single yet salty” crew become the know-it-alls when it comes to finding the perfect soul mate? That rarely turns out well for most of us. We can become so desperate to find love that we look for guidance from any and everybody that is willing to share their “wealth of knowledge”. But the one that truly can solve our dating troubles is God.

So often, we ask God to bless us with material things like fancy cars, beautiful homes, money and any other things that we desire to have. But why is it that some of us never ask God to bless us with a good partner? Why don’t we ever send up that prayer for companionship?

If God is the one that has all the power, the one who controls everything that goes on in this world from the rising of the sun to the rain that falls down here on Earth, why would He be incapable of delivering a soul mate to you?

Some may say praying for companionship is silly, that God wouldn’t take a prayer like that seriously.

The response that: All prayers hold importance, not only to you but to God as well. He listens to us when we talk Him about our troubles and the things that we want to happen in our lives, including finding a good person to spend the rest of our lives with.

So when online dating has failed you and blind dates always seem to turn out horrible, it’s time to call on God for that soul mate you are looking for. Pray to Him that He shall send you a person who will honor and keep you, respect you as a human being and treat you as their equal, be your backbone when you are weak and take care of you when you are sick. Be sincere in your prayer for companionship to God for if it is truly in your heart to find love and you believe in His power, your dating troubles will be solved.
