Prayer and dating

I wish I had taken the time to pray before entering my past relationships.
We get so fixated on what we want in a relationship that we fail to focus in on who we are and what God is doing in us.
If I could go back, I would have asked God for more healing as I examined all the inner-workings of my life.
If you clicked this article, there’s a good chance you’re looking for a prayer for love.
You may have been praying about love for a while, or maybe you don’t know here to begin. Because I’ve always had a tendency to think about love, rather than pray about it.
But there are so many things I know now, that I didn’t know then.
I would have prayed for more discernment as I made choices in my life and relationships, rather than letting my life and relationships control me., I call this process “dating inward.” And I truly believe it’s one of the most important steps in finding love.What I didn’t always understand was that the best relationships are made up of two healthy people. But rather than be so consumed with finding love, I would have asked God to help me experience more of his love.I would have started working on me while standing alone. What I didn’t know then is that knowing God’s love is the greatest way to understand earthly love - and to learn to love yourself.I had so much to learn about trust back then, and so much I’m still learning. But if I knew then what I know now, I would have sought to be filled while standing alone.While there are so many things a healthy relationship can do, there are so many things it can’t. It can’t bring ultimate joy or perfect contentment. Partly because I didn’t really trust God, and partly because I allowed life to just happen.
