I highly recommend the novel: And Rachel Was His Wife. Its based on the true story of Rachel and Rabbi Akiva, but with fiction(new characters etc…) Its GREAT! And I learned a lot from it to improve in Abodat HaShem.
Prayer for Finding a Husband(Adapted from Rabbi Mordechi Dolinksy’s book, “Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover”)Translation of the Prayer composed by the Holy Shelah
May it be Your will Hashem, my God and God of my forefathers, that You find for me with your many mercies and the greatness of Your kindness, my true and befitting marriage partner at the right time. The right partner, worthy of having children, a learned man, great in Torah and the fear of Heaven, born from the seed of righteous and truthful men who have fear of sin. Just like You found the true partner for Adam Ha-Rishon, for Avraham, Yitzchak, Yaakov and Moshe, each one his true partner at the right moment and time. And please let the partner that You choose for me be a good man, one with pleasantness of action, a master of good deeds, a man of grace with intelligence and fear of God, a pursuer of charity and a doer of kindnesses. May he not have even a little insufficiency, or physical defect, or imperfection, and not be an angry or aggressive man. May he just be modest with a humble spirit, healthy, and strong. And please don’t allow any interference from ruthless individuals or enemies whose intentions and manipulations would aspire to prevent me from meeting my marriage partner.
May the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart find favor before You, Hashem, my Rock and my Redeemer.
