A Prayer for the Married Couple
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for this occasion.
Thank you for allowing this couple to commit themselves as Husband and Wife.
On this day Lord, you have given this couple the responsibility recognized as a spiritual gift of companionship.
Together, here today Lord, while in the presence of family and friends.
We ask you to strengthen their bond.
We ask you to allow them to recognize the fault in themselves, before considering arguing to relieve tension and frustration that all couples face.
Give them the desire to communicate with one another when the other needs the attention of their life mate.
Allow them to cherish the sanctity of marriage knowing that the other is all they need, mentally – emotionally and physically, in their partnership.
With all the love you have for this couple Lord, Bless them, so that we as their friends and family may celebrate this day with them for the rest of their lives.
And for those friends and family members, who could not be here in a physical form, allow their sprit to be felt in the hearts of this couple, so that all the positive energy within this setting can lead this couple into an optimistic future.
In your name Lord, Amen.
