Prayer for a boyfriend

I am a little shy to bring this topic onto this forum, but please have patience with me.
I am a single woman and I’m 30 years old.
I am not sure if God wants me to remain as a single woman for the rest of my life, but I want to have a relationship with a devout Catholic man. I have never been in a relationship before, but what I know is that I want to have a relationship with a good Catholic man and have a family. Is there any good prayer/novena for getting a good boyfriend? To be honest, I don’t even know if God wants me to pray for such thing, because there is certainly a possibility that God wants me to remain as a single woman for the rest of my life.

Is this something that I should pray for? if yes, what are the good prayers/novena for such an intention?

Thank you,

I don’t know what prayers you can pray or should pray but I was once told by a priest to pray for a girlfriend so I do that. I’m about the same age as you. I think that priest thought it God’s will that I have a girlfriend so that’s not something I have a problem praying for and I think the best you can do is pray for what God wants you to do and to know the difference between what you want and what he wants

Just pray for God’s will for you. If that leads you to someone or someone to you, that’s good.

I know you said you are shy, but while you are praying, you still need to get on with the business of life and making yourself the best you there is. :thumbsup:

Have you tried Catholicmatch or AveMaria for Internet dating?

Praying for God’s will to be.

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.


Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.


Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.


For Help in Trials

Most holy apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your beloved Master into the hands of His enemies has caused you to be forgotten by many. But the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hopeless cases–of things despaired of. Pray for me who feels so hopeless. Make use, I implore you, of that particular privilege accorded to you of bringing visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need, that I may receive the consolations and succor of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, in particular (catholic0913), and that I may bless God with you and all the elect throughout eternity. I promise you, O Blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to you. Amen.

Best advice I can give is change into another circle of friends,
In our Area ladies go to Aqua Aerobics , single & Married , they go for morning Tea
Or go out for lunch as a group,
they always seem to know someone that needs a BF / GF
Just need to change the Aproach ,good luck

Sure, it’s fine to tell God what’s in your heart, and it’s quite normal to want a relationship and family. That’s what most people want.

Praying for you.
