Prayer For Couple
Lord God, we acknowledge your greatness and our need for your grace in our marriage.
We thank you now for the gift you have given us in each other, this opportunity to love and be
We accept this beautiful challenge and ask you to bless us.
May our love encourage us to grow to be holier individuals, bringing out the best in each other.
Following your example, Jesus, may we be quick to forgive, ready with a healing word or touch.
Teach us to speak to each other with charity and honesty.
Help us avoid the temptation to take each other for granted.
Instead, remind us, day by day, to see each other as you see us.
May we be as patient with each other as you are with us.
May our love be generous, reaching out beyond ourselves to all we meet.
We pray that they may meet you in us.
Let our life together be a light of hope to those who fear that a total commitment is not possible

Lord, be a partner with us in our marriage; with your help it will be strong and enduring.
We rejoice that you have brought us together.
May we always be one in you.
O Lord, You are Lord over all creation. Everyday we are surrounded by the miracle of life. Your creativity bursts across the skies at sunset, it emerges from spring buds that bloom. Thank you for the beauty of marriage. Like three streams that merge into one single river, you are journeying with us. You are the creative, restoring current that runs through our relationship. May we stand strong in our friendship like a tall oak tree. May we pull together through the different seasons of our lives so that we become closer. May we ride out the storms and rest in the fair weather. May we care for one another, so that we blossom and bloom as individuals. May we have your vision as we soar above the everyday to glimpse the kingdom of heaven. May we learn the truth of real beauty as we change and age together. And may we reflect your love, hope, and truth that you have poured into our union. Thank you that through your strength and grace we are able to love, care and provide for our loved ones and the wider world. Amen.
Lord, we come to You today because we simply want to pray together regularly. We know we need to set an example for our (family, kids, others), but we also want this for ourselves. We're not sure about how to start. Help us, first of all, to agree about the importance of praying together. You've said that where two or three come together in Your name, You are right there with them. So we are coming together in Your name, asking You to meet with us.
Teach us to be as disciplined in praying together as we are in other areas. Our spiritual lives need discipline just like our bodies need help with a healthy diet and physical exercise. And two are always better than one to help ensure success.
Help us to encourage one another and to set a specific time or times for praying together as a couple often. If we need to get up earlier, stay up later, start with mealtimes, or bedtimehelp us to find what works best for us. Even if it requires scheduling a regular date or appointment on the calendar to initiate prayer as a priority and habit, we're willing to do that.
Lord, You've promised to meet all our needs, but sometimes we don't even know what our needs are. Help us to open up with You and with each other as we look to Your Word for guidance in praying together. Guard us from distractions like excessive television, social media, work, or anything else that can steal our time and commitment to pray together.
We want to pray together for our family, for friends, and for our world. We ask You to teach us how to praynot just Bless us, and Give us, but really how to talk to You as a friend and as our Father, to focus on You and get to know You better, as well as each other. Help us not to be embarrassed as we take turns praying and not to worry about what words to say or how it sounds. You love honest and submissive hearts, and we want to pray that way together.
Forgive us for allowing other things in the past to keep us from praying together. Help us to be one in our desire to honor You, and to establish honest communication between the two of us so hidden sin won't hinder our prayers. Teach us how to keep our marriage intentional at all times. We realize that neglect in any area will affect both our desire and our effectiveness to pray together.
We want to know You and to make the desires of Your heart become our desires as well. Teach us how to pray according to Your will and to be patient to wait for Your answers. Thank You for Your sacrificial death, that allows us to come boldly to Your throne and find help and grace for every need we have.
Put strong Christians in our path who can help us with our prayer life and keep us accountable so we can keep growing strong in our own marriage. You are our Heavenly Father, and You love us as Your children. So today, we are coming to You, pledging our desire to begin praying together. Bless us as we seek to honor that pledge every day of our lives.
In Jesus' name, Amen
Grant that I and my spouse may have a true and understanding love for each other. Grant that we may both be filled with faith and trust.
Give us the grace to live with each other in peace and harmony.
May we always bear with one another's weaknesses and grow from each other's strengths.
Help us to forgive one another's failings and grant us patience, kindness, cheerfulness, and the spirit of placing the well-being of one another ahead of self.
May the love that brought us together grow and mature with each passing year. Bring us both ever closer to You through our love for each other.
Let our love grow to perfection.
Heavenly Father, thank you that you are our creator, you know us better than anyone else. You brought us together and you have promised that you have plans and a purpose for us, plans to prosper us and not to harm us. Remind us that you are the center of our relationship and that you are the one who watches over our future. May we look to you for wisdom and guidance. May your peace, which surpasses all understanding, guard our hearts and our minds in Christ Jesus. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
God of Unfailing Love, may we be filled with love for each other that reflects your love for us. Your love is patient, let us be patient with each other. Your love is kind, let us be kind to each other. Your love does not envy, let us not be envious of each other. Your love does not boast, may our relationship be built on humility. You love does not dishonor others, let us honor each other. Your love is not self-seeking, let us love each other with a selfless love. Help us to love each other well. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Father, your greatest command was to love You and love each other. You've given marriage as a holy relationship that reflects our relationship with You. Show us how to follow your example and set aside our selfishness and pride and humbly serve each other. Help us to be of one spirit and of one mind and value each other above ourselves, looking out for each other's interests. In the midst of our busy lives, help us take time to love each other deeply from the heart, as you have loved us. May the love we have for each other be an example to the world of how You love them and gave Your life for them.
Lord, I pray for your peace to rule richly in my marriage and in my home. You said in your Word that the peace you give passes all understanding. I receive that peace right now. I choose to let the peace of Christ rest in my heart. As the peace of Christ rest in my heart, it will extend to my marriage.
