Prayer For Newlyweds
Father, we pray you will guide them, and with us, their family, friends, and community, help them make this choice and renew it day after day.
In good times and in bad, for better or for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, till death do us part.
Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. Prov. 3:3-4
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29
Let us pray. Lord God, you sustain all creatures and never cease to give your children the food they need. We bless you for bringing us together in the love that unites us around this table where the food we take strengthens our bodies. We pray that, nourished by your Word, we may grow ever stronger in faith as we strive for the coming of your Kingdom. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
We know that all of us need God's blessing at all times; but at the time of their engagement to be married, Christians are in particular need of grace as they prepare themselves to form a new family.
Let us pray, then, for God's blessing to come upon this couple: that as they await the day of their wedding, they will grow in mutual respect and in their love for one another; that through their companionship and prayer together they will prepare themselves rightly and chastely for marriage.
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.
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,
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,
