Finding a marriage partner


(My English not very good). I have a great desire: to find the right person, get married and have family. I am 38. I passed through bad relationships for many years. I missed lots of opportunities but now I am willing to do all the right things and take the right attitudes to maintain a good and health relationship. If it is possible that praying and beg to God he makes a miracle and send me a person very quickly and get married before getting older, before it's too late? Please help me.

Dear Friend,

In Yogananda’s book, Spiritual Relationships, he gives the following affirmation, which he recommends practicing daily for six months:

“Heavenly Father, bless me that I choose my life companion according to Thy law of perfect soul union.”

Tune in to the depth of this prayer and use it instead of begging from God. Try to see God as your dearest friend, who has your highest interests at heart.

Find ways to discover within yourself the joy you are seeking in a marriage. This will not only help you be a happier person, but it will help you be a person who is more magnetic to men.

In divine friendship,
