Beloved Guruji, I pray to you, I want to marry. You have given your blessings to me as well. Please make the person you have asked me to consult agree too. I have come under your care and shelter. I pray daily to you, will you answer my patient prayers?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

See, whenever we pray it is necessary that we must follow it up with one sentence.

‘May my wish be fulfilled or if there is something better for me may that be fulfilled’.

How do you know what is best for your well being? So always add this line to your prayer, that if there is anything better for me may that happen.

Whatever is needed and is best for you only will happen. Remember these two things always. For a devotee only the best will happen.
This does not mean you keep rejecting everyone who comes your way thinking something better is yet to come, this is also wrong.
Listen to your inner voice.
