Prayer For Engaged Couple
Dear Heavenly Father, we come to you with joy and thanksgiving as we celebrate the engagement of this couple and the commitment they have made to each other to be joined together in marriage. We thank you for all of the time they have shared together and for the many joys and challenges that have given them the opportunity to know each other more deeply. Thank you for the love that has grown between them. Help their love to continue to grow daily as it encompasses all of the many wonderful aspects of love including compassion, a sense of belonging to each other, friendship and unconditional love.
As they plan their wedding and begin charting the direction of their new life together give them the ability to communicate well and to laugh often. Give them the grace to value each others' opinions, hopes, gifts, faith and dreams. Be with them in their times of disagreement that they might learn how to find common ground, how to give up personal control, how to talk over differences and how to express emotions in healthy ways. Help them to learn how to trust each other. Teach them how to deal with money issues, job demands, family obligations and personality differences. And grant them the time they need together as a couple to stay focused on their relationship during the course of wedding plans and busyness of modern life.
Most of all, enable them to form a strong spiritual bond based on your eternal love that will last for a lifetime and beyond into eternity. May you bless them with your loving presence now and always. Amen.
Heavenly Father we thank You for this joyful engagement celebration and the commitment that these two people have made to each other, to spend their lives together, as husband and wife.
We come to You today, to celebrate their decision and consecrate their future into Your hands and we ask for Your special blessing on this engagement ring, praying that he who gives it and she who wears it would recognise that significance of this important symbol:- a life-time of loving commitment to one another.
We pray that Your blessing would rest upon them, throughout this engagement period.. as they plan for their future life together. We ask that this may be a time when their love for each other deepens and grows.. as they cement their future happiness on You

I believe that the Holy Spirit is working in our realionship , that my my fiancee victor will not be deceived by the persuasive words of anyone who would lead him astray or attempt to seduce him
I give You praise and honor, Lord, and I thank you that no weapon formed against our marriage has prospered and I believe that You Lord will silence anyone who is attempting to come between us, telling my spouse that reconciliation is wrong. With the spiritual authority given to me in Jesus name, I rebuke anyone who would attempt to put a wedge between myself and my fiancee through ungodly advice, use of banned spiritual arts as mentioned in the bible for direction, or through false teachings or words.
Lord, I believe the Holy Spirit is working in my fiancee life right now, ministering to his heart, and I believe the Holy Spirit will righteously convict and correct my fiancee thoughts, words and actions and place in his heart the burning desire to rebuild our engagment because He knows life is better with me and the grass is NOT greener in other pastures as the deception of the world leads us to believe. I petition you dear Lord, that My fiancee would humbly accept Your conviction and correction and seek your direction.
Lord, I ask You to convict and deal with any unconfused sin in his life. Enable us to deal with any sin that would be hindering our marriage.?Lord, I believe it is in your Will that we are reconciled back to each other despite anything we've done to each other in the past and I forgive my fiancee for any wrongs I feel he has done as I pray that He forgives me.God, Your words are trustworthy and you have promised these things to me though your words given throughout the ages through the profits, disciples and Jesus. You have promised that You will build a home for me and that it pleases You to bless my marriage. I praise and thank You Lord, for keeping the promise you have made concerning me, my fiancee and our home.Lord I believe you will guard the fidelity of our marriage in this time, and will keep his eyes blinded to temptations of our Human nature or the influence of the Devil. In the name of Jesus, I pray that You would bind the work of Satan from this marriage and cast that influence awayLord, I believe You will be here with me to assist me in staying strong and courageous throughout all the trials, struggles and issues , and I praise you for not allowing me to be afraid or feeling discouraged if things don't seem to be progressing in my time. Your power is greater than the power of Satan and all who do his work, and I believe all good things will be done on Earth and in Heaven in Your time, such as the restoration of my engagment . I refuse to be discouraged, I refuse to be defeated. You are the God of all hope and I claim in every way this victory in my engagment though your Word.Father, I plead that we will speak the truth to one another in love. Cause us to honestly share our feelings without being arrogant or spiteful. Replace those feelings, Holy Spirit, with love and honesty and enable us to work through our differences.
Jesus, I plead that we will put away all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and slander, along with every form of malice. In the place of this, I pray that would will be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving each other and being there for each other and hold each other and spport each other and care about each other cheer each other and text each other and call each other and say i love you and i miss you and all the romance and sweet and loving and listening to each other when one of us sick let us check on each other Let be no cussing and no yelling and no cheating and no each other and no being dishonest and no being unfaithful and no fighting father god rain down your holy spirit right now and your mercy and grace right now and fill us with your present right now fill us with Bring me and victor close to each other like we was first met bless us see each other and spend more time each other Father, I pray that You would rekindle passion and desire between myself and my fiancee and heal any emotional wounds we may have caused one another.?It is Your Will that victor and i engagment and our marriage to be for a lifetime and therefore go has joined together, let no man separate.

Lord Jesus, to teach us to love one another, You became one of us, taking as a tabernacle the body of Mary. You said: "Be one in each other, even as I and the Father are one."
You have desired that [name] and I should live in You as with a single life, like two branches of a single vine, which Your providence has entwined. Let our love pass through You, that it may realize a perfect union, not only of our hearts but also of our souls, and that, growing from day to day, it may likewise increase our life in You.
Help us to bring to our home enough beauty, health, thrift, strength, purity, and ideals, to make it a model of the new world we wish to build with You, and to give You priests, perhaps, but certainly apostles.
With all this, let us never forget that it is through us that Your kingdom must be established--in factories, offices, shops, in all the places we frequent, in our streets and houses . . . on earth as in heaven.
Have pity on all those youths and maidens whose hearts are wounded and whose dreams are broken. Guard the promises which have been made according to Your Spirit. And may Your blessing soon give us to each other forever. Amen.
God, we pray today for those engaged to be married. This is a time of hope and anticipation. May they now begin to discover the principles and power of covenant love and faithfulness. This couple has made a promise to make a promise; they have chosen to make a choice. This day, though not their marriage, is a beginning and they can only imagine now what their union will entail. Today, give them wisdom and guidance and wise counsel to learn truths that will equip them for life together. Give them strength and efficiency as they plan the logistics of their wedding, and their family life beyond. Show them how to leverage the stresses of this season to cultivate maturity in their love. Amidst the joy of engagement, help them embrace the crucible that tests and purifies them. Engagement is a time trial where they will watch and learn about themselves, each other, and the uniqueness of their relationship. Walk with them closely through this process. Remind them at times of doubt that you are there. For you yourself understand engagement, for you are engaged to your Bride. As this couple anticipates their wedding, in the same way we all anticipate the consummation of history the wedding of Jesus with his People. May this human engagement reflect that same eternal hope!
Lord, as we prepare for the sacrament of marriage, we come to ask what you desire from us.
Guide us to know your will.
May we look to your love for us as our model of how we are to love each other.
Show us how to nourish and cherish each other as we would our own bodies.
Bring your strength to our weakness so that we might help each other grow into people you created us to be.
Enable us to grow in our intimacy with you and with each other so that we might experience the fullness of your love.
Thank you for the gift of marriage so that we can more fully understand your love for us.
Pray that you and your spouse-to-be would let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, and that the two of you would be firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel (Philippians 1:27). Ask the Lord to grant you even now a vision of the joint ministry He has planned for your marriage.
Acknowledge to the Lord that although your heart makes plans, the LORD establishes your steps (Proverbs 16:9). Ask Him to direct your path and that of your beloved, as you both trust in Him. Yield your will to His in all things.
Confess the truth that unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain (Psalm 127:1). Share with God your heart's desire that He would build your house, and be the foundation on which your home is established.
Recount back to God that without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed (Proverbs 15:22). Ask the Lord to place the right counselors into your life and the life of your betrothed; that He would give your advisers wisdom; and that He would grant you a teachable spirit.
Six biblical prayers for engaged couples. Pray these over your own engagement, or on behalf of an engaged couple in your life.
Praise the Lord for the gift of His divine power which has granted you all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called you to His own glory and excellence! Revel in the His precious and very great promises granted to you, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire. Pray that you and your beloved would progress in spiritual maturity during the time of your engagement and in your marriage, making every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:3-8).
Ask that the God of endurance and encouragement would grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 15:5-6).
Dear Heavenly Father, how good You are to give us the gift of anticipation about joyous occasions to come! Thank you for the person You have ordained for me to marry, and for directing our relationship thus far. I pray that you would continue to make your will known to us, in big ways and small, as we pursue your will together. We long to glorify you in our relationship, now and forevermore. It's in the name of my Savior, Jesus Christ, that I pray. Amen.
Gracious Heavenly Father, we come to You with joyful hearts and grateful thanks for the beautiful way that You have brought us together in love, and pray that as we make our betrothal pledge to each other, that You would bless our time of engagement.
We pray that as we leave our single status behind and move forward to the day when we will be fully united in holy matrimony, that You would bless our time together, and that it would be a period when we would draw even closer in faithful love to one another, and also to You.
Grant that we may be loyal in our commitment to each other and learn to love one another with godly wisdom and open truth. Fill our hearts with grace, goodness, gentleness and kindness towards each other, and prevent any foolish jealousies, unnecessary pretences or unfounded distrust for the other.
Help us to found our future together on biblical principles, and may we never lose the first love and initial enthusiasm we discovered in each other. May we grow in grace and in a knowledge of our Lord and Saviour together, in Whose name we pray,
Loving Heavenly Father, we come to You together on this special occasion of our engagement, giving You our grateful thanks that You brought us together, in love. Keep us united in love to each other and to You, and help us to keep You in the rightful

Lord, we desire to be pure in Your sight and chaste in each others company, and pray that you would keep us from temptation.
Unite us in love and peace and teach us Your ways as You guard us and guide us. And just as You poured out a special blessing on the young couple in Cana of Galilee, we pray that You would bless our union, bless our engagement. Bless us Lord, from this day forward and for evermore. In Jesus' name we pray,
