Send me someone



Lord, send me someone.

Send me someone who adores me.

Send me someone who cherishes me.

Someone who invites me to church.

Someone who wants to know how my day was.

Send me someone who wants to meet my family, learn where I came from, and why I am the way that I am.

Someone who doesn’t have to change me.

Send me someone who loves to take naps just as much as me.

Someone who is proud of my accomplishments.

Send me someone who prays for me.

Someone who builds me up instead of breaking me down.

Send me someone who will reassure my heart, and our relationship.

Send me someone who can love my heart just how it is.

Someone who wants me to meet their family and loved ones.

Send me someone who is so proud to call me theirs.

Someone who can communicate with me.

Someone who knows what they want.

Send me someone who isn’t afraid to show me off, instead of hiding me.

Someone who will do anything to make me happy.

Someone who takes their time to fix things when I am upset.

Someone who jokes with me.

Send me someone who makes me a better person.

Someone who looks at me differently than anyone else.

Send me someone who accepts my sassiness and stubborn attitude.

Send me someone who loves dogs and can forgive me when I bring home one too many.

Someone who knows how to take the blame and apologize when they have done wrong.

Send me someone who lights up when I walk into the room.

Someone who lets me cry, and is okay with it.

Send someone who won’t steal food off my plate.

Send me someone who is straight up with their intentions, problems, and what I can do to help.

Someone who forgives me for my previous mistakes.

Send someone who is loyal.

Send me someone who sees my heart for how it truly is.

Send me someone who loves me like You do, Lord.

I am in no rush, so when You’re ready… Send me that guy.

But first, help me.

Help me cope with my insecurities.

Help me become more patient.

Help me understand personalities that are unlike my own.

Help me love myself and allude confidence.

Help me get my priorities straight.

Teach me to be a Proverbs 31 woman.

Help me become the wife and mother my husband has always dreamed of… (the cooking needs some work).

Help me become more independent.

Help me become a light.

Help me establish my lifelong friends, my future bridesmaids.

Teach me to think before speaking, and not be easily-angered.

Help me see the positive in everything.

Help me be someone that attracts my future spouse spiritually, emotionally, and even physically.

Help me grow thick skin, and create a softer heart.

Teach me to put others before myself, take away my selfishness.

Teach me to listen, and not speak.

Teach me to listen to YOUR plan, and trust it.

Help me accomplish my goals.

Help me become a woman someone would be proud to be with.

Help me with my sassiness, Oh Lord… HELP ME WITH THE ‘TUDE.

Teach me to come to You before coming to others.

Teach me to search for a relationship with You before a relationship with a man.

Teach me to love like You, Lord.

Teach me.

    After recently going through a break up, this hit much more close to home than you can imagine. Although I was heart-broken, it seemed that it was God’s way of getting my attention and putting my feet back on a path towards him. The things you mentioned here, plus more, sums up my desires at this moment. God has definitely changed my ways of relying on others more than I did on Him. So thankful He sometimes uses the simplest things, such as blogs, to be used as a tool for other Christians. Thank you for being obedient!

    In the past few days I have been struggling. Struggling to be patient and understand why things happen the way that they do. I was with the same person for 5 years, we were true to our Christian values throughout the entire relationship. In the end, being together just wasn’t right for our futures. As I have begun dating I have found many people who, once they find out my values, disappear. Most recently I have been told that a relationship with that person would not work because they had messed up in the past. they respected my perseverance but that they wanted to put me in a box so that no one would ever change me and being in a relationship with me would be too risky. This has left me feeling as if i am being penalized for my faith that i have worked hard to build and maintain.. Discouraging to say the least. I’m relieved to see that there are others working toward the same goals that I am and beginning to see that patience and growth in myself is what i need. Thank you for your beautiful words.

    To bad every woman doesn’t think this way! Definitely a dream girl, absolutely gorgeous who in their right mind wouldn’t want to show her off!

        Don’t expect that perfect person to fall down for the sky. But with a little bit of positivity and patience he will show up. 🙂 I’m patiently waiting for the same thing..

    As I am 18 year old girl headed to college, I really needed to read this. I pray that you and I both find a guy like this but that we more importantly allow God to write our love story and grow closer to Him. 🙂

Felt lead to pray for u. Oh the plans he has for u. He has a great plan, but its only found in him and his way. Keep writing. God has given u a gift.

    Being in college surrounded by the expectation to find someone during this stage & looked at differently when I’m about to start my senior year single while everyone else is getting engaged is hard. My prayer has always been Lord send him when you know both of our hearts are ready & calm my anxious heart until that point. Until then I just pray for my future husband and his relationship with the Lord every time a wave hits me about being single. Thank you for these words!!

    Where are you located? I have a son to send you via God of course 🙂

    This is an amazing prayer. I pray that God answers your prayers. Don’t give up. Where are you from by the way?


  20. Seth Pennington · June 28, 2016

    I really needed this today. In a world of dating gone wrong, it is nice to know women still seek good men. I think every good guy tends to have the “we finish last” perspective after so long. It’s nice to be reassured.


  21. Mrs. Harvey · July 1, 2016

    I have 2 Christian sons, never married. You don’t indicate where you are locacated, so I assume this isn’t a hunt for a husband, but it is a good idea. Located in Columbus, OH, (Buckeye land.)

    Love this – great post! My daughter who is also waiting for someone shared a podcast recently. May I also recommend it to you and all of the singles who read your blog? It’s Breakaway Ministries – Dating Who? Dating How (Part 1 & 2). Remember to always wait for the RIGHT person!

    Bailee, I love this! I am a long-time high school teacher, mother of four, and Bible class teacher. Your post was shared by one of my former (and favorite) students and I am going to read this next weekend during a high school girls’ Bible class retreat. It was exactly the puzzle piece I needed to pull the whole lesson together. Thank you for sharing some amazing thoughts and for being such an awesome writer. (Did I mention that English is my subject?!) Keep up the good work and I look forward to reading more from you in the future!

    Bailee Barber:
    I don’t know who you are, or where you live, but I know that God is everywhere! He sees all! He knows all! Just reading this is mind-blowing enough! I literally pray for this almost every night. Not only God to prepare my future spouse, but myself as well you know? And that I pray that she feels that I’m praying for her and that she knows that she’s loved by You and myself.
    I’ll stop right there, cause I can keep going on and on about this! So encouraging to know that I’m not the only one that prays like this! Praise God! I thank you so much for sharing this! So brave of you!

    Well I am here stuck in NC being disabled. Have no way to travel. Just surviving one day at a a time. Hoping to find someone like you to start the rest of my life with. Juggalo27028 is my Facebook and ps4 game tag. If you are wanting to learn more about me have nothing but time being trapped in this body of pain.


  28. Kayla Hall · August 5, 2016

    I love this blog Bailee! I can not believe how far it has spread, all of my friends down here in DFW area LOVE it! So good:)


  29. ahmedjabaifitness · August 8, 2016

    The best thing I could do when dating was give up. The best person for me found me and stayed in my life. I am still with her and literally love each other and take care of each other beyond belief. The best part…SHE IS THE TYPE OF GIRL I WOULD HAVE NEVER DATED BEFORE HER. My heart was telling me yes so I did and I am forever thankful for that decision. We tend to have an “ideal partner” and push away those that would be perfect for us. My advice is stop asking and searching for that someone and let that someone prove to be worth in your life. Too many people force love nowadays….let the soul connection happen naturally like it should and you will find the one 🙂 Cheers!


  30. Liz · August 17, 2016

    This is awesome! Really speaks to preparing for marriage instead of searching for it. What a beautiful and honest reminder! Thank you!

    I will pray for you! I hope that one day I can truly learn to love the way Jesus wants us to. 1 Corinthians 13:4-

    I am truly impressed with what you had to say. For me I’m a man who is 21 and is trying to do the same so I can relate. All I know to help the both of us is it’s on Gods time not your own so yes when he is ready he will send someone. For how pretty and smart you sound in this article it won’t be long trust me. Have a blessed day!


  35. Kathleen Bieritz · October 20, 2016

    Wow! That is a beautiful piece. Thank you for sharing.


  36. Bailee Doherty · October 21, 2016

    This was incredible. I opened this page up to see it was written by a “Bailee” and instantly felt like this was something I was going to be able to relate to. And it truly is. Thank you for sharing this!

    Being a survivor of an abusive relationship, this is exactly what I prayed for. I truly learned what love was through the Lord. I just believe every young girl, especially in today’s day and age, needs to know this. Beautiful.

    This is as beautiful as the person who wrote it. Most amazing spirit that I have ever experienced. I pray that you find what you’re looking for.

    Dear Lord, I beg you to give Bailee someone extremely special to love her more than she could have ever imagined.

    Thank you so much Jesus.
