When Life Hits Pause: Here Are Restart Buttons
In experiencing delays or stagnation, we often resort to prayers as singles or married.
However,  there is an additional thing you should do with praying, you are to watch.

Mat 26:41 (KJV)  
Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

To watch is to be on guard. To gather your faculties is what it implies. Think, reflect, examine yourself, and take the required steps to determine what could be the cause of the delay.
What do you watch out for?

When Life Hits Pause: Here Are Restart Buttons

Here are two of them.

1. Watch Your Attitudes
Let’s address singles first. Attitude is a settled way of thinking or feeling about someone or something, typically one that is reflected in a person’s behavior.

It is all about you and what makes you do certain things at any given time.

A wrong attitude can drive promising potential spouses away. Bad attitudes deter.

Before you start to pray, ensure that you have worked or are working on your attitude.

Bad attitudes will lead to breakups one after the other.

Here are a few scriptures on attitudes that can help and that you should meditate on.

Php 2:14-15 (KJV)  
Do all things without murmurings and disputings:  [15]  That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

Col 3:23 (AMP)  
Whatever may be your task, work at it heartily (from the soul), as [ something done ] for the Lord and not for men,

Pro 17:22 (AMP)  
A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones. 

In marriage, do not allow bad attitudes to create loopholes for the devil which he can exploit to bring delay to different aspects of your marriage.

When your spouse is making an effort after a disagreement or quarrel, do not reciprocate with annoying attitude. It is like dribbling the ball backward. Remember, you are a team. Your spouse is not the problem, the devil is!

2. Watch Your Preparation
Nobody will be fully prepared or ready for marriage, but there should be a certain level or preparedness.

Pro 18:22 (KJV)   Whoso findeth a wife…

Not he who findeth a sister or a woman…
That shows that a lady should learn what it means to be a wife, a helper before venturing into it.

Do you really know what it means to be a helper?

Have you read books on communication, temperament, etc?

Are you ready to be a wife and not a knife?

The same applies to a man.

Are you ready to be responsible?
Are you ready to raise a family?

Do you have the spiritual clout to head and lead a family?

Without adequate preparation, delay can easily creep in.

If God sees that a marriage at an earlier time will destroy you, God himself would throw a monkey wrench in the whole thing, because He doesn’t want evil to befall you.

Your preparation actually enhances the speed at the end of it all.

As married couples, your preparation continues. Do not sweep issues under the carpet. Face issues and be scientific as well as spiritual with them. Read books, search for answers, and find out how you can constantly improve yourself!

May God grant more understanding.
