Prayer For Engagement

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 place in our hearts and in our lives.

You are the God of love and we thank You Lord, that You have caused such a deep love for each other to develop between us. We want to dedicate our future together to You, Lord. Be with us Lord, as we grow closer together, and as we make our plans for the future, we ask that You would guide us and direct us in all our decisions. 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,


Heavenly Father, we thank You for this joyful engagement ceremony and praise You for the close bond of marriage which was ordained by You, to bring together a man and a woman in holy matrimony.

We thank You for bringing this couple together in love, and pray that You would direct and govern their lives together. Draw them closer to each other in the bond of godly love and fellowship, and remain close to them in the future decisions and choices that they will make in their life together.

Be with us now Lord, as we join with them in joyful celebration of their commitment to each other, and we pray that You would bless us all during this special engagement ceremony.

Guard and guide their future together and may Your grace and blessing shine down on them in untold measure today, and in the days that lie ahead. This we ask in Jesus' name,


Lord, we come before You now to ask Your blessing on this engagement, and pray You will pour our Your grace and favour on this Christian couple, in the commitment that they have made to each other and in their desire to consecrate their future relationship to You.

We pray that in the days and months that lie ahead, You will prepare their hearts and minds for the sacred institution of marriage to which You have called them, and we thank You Father, that their mutual love for each other is founded on their sincere love for You.

We pray that you would continue to bless and guide them with each passing day, and to honour and keep them, as they plan their future together.

May the light of Your love shine on them today and throughout their future together. This we ask in Jesus' name,


Heavenly Father, we thank You for the precious gift of our lovely daughter, and praise You Lord for the many joys that parenthood has brought.

Thank You for the privilege of allowing us to watch her develop into a beautiful young woman, and that in Your grace, You have seen fit to bring this special man into her life, and to draw them together in the bond of love.

Lord, as they take this next important step in life and pledge their love to each other, we pray Your special blessing on their engagement, and that their betrothal will be an extra-special time when they draw closer to each other, and to You.

May they never forget the importance of the commitment that they have made to each other, and we pray that they would continue to love and serve You in their future life together to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name we pray,


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. This we ask in Jesus' name,


Heavenly Lord, thank You for drawing this couple together in love, and for the betrothal commitment that they have made to each other. And so we lift them up to You, and pray for Your blessing on their engagement and future life together.

Guide their choices and plans in the days that lie ahead. Strengthen and uphold them as together they make arrangements for their wedding day. Give them wisdom and understanding of the commitment that they have pledged to each other, and may they find great joy and deep contentment in their love for each other.

May Your love and peace undergird them and Your Holy Spirit lead and guide them. This we ask in Jesus' name,


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,


Dear Lord Jesus, I pray today for all those that have made the choice to become engaged and spend their lives together in the union of marriage, which You Yourself ordained and blessed. Lord, I pray that You would help all betrothed couples to recognise the sanctity of the promises that they have made to each other, and give them grace to forsake all others and cleave only to each other, for as long as they live, as You ordained.
Give them wisdom and guidance as they start to make their future plans together, and provide each of them with the wise counsel from godly counsellors, so that they may have all that they need to equip themselves for a future together, when they become united as one.
Lord, in a world where the sanctity of marriage is becoming so unpopular, I pray that You would renew a deeper understanding and reverence for the true meaning of marriage, to all engaged couples. Bring each to a deeper understanding that Christ's love for the Church is a beautiful picture of what marriage for every Christian couple should be.
In this period of engagement, I pray that You would prepare each one for tremendous changes and challenges that their marriage will bring. Help them to overcome all the difficulties that will arise as they adapt their single status into a meaningful marriage partnership. May they grow closer together in love with each other and with You, day by day. In Jesus' name,
