Loving Father, what a joy when two of Your children are joined together in holy matrimony and make their vows to each other before Your throne of grace. Bless this wedding – and bless their future together.
Thank You for the beauty of love that has grown between them and we pray that in their life together You would lead and guide in all things and that they would live in a bond of unity – with Christ Jesus as their focus.
Lord we pray that their commitment towards each other will grow stronger and become more meaningful with every passing year. Guard and guide them in their life together, give them both the grace to fulfil the needs of the other in love, and keep them humble before You – as, in the power of You Holy Spirit - they seek to fulfil their promise made to each other. We ask this in the name of Jesus,
Dear heavenly Father, we thank You that You were the One that established the marriage union, where a man and woman may join together in holy matrimony – to become one. We pray for the marriage of this Christian couple on their wedding day, and pray that You would richly bless their union and life together.
We pray that the groom may love his wife as Christ loved the Church and gave Himself for her and that his bride would similarly live in gracious submission to her husband, as is pleasing in Your sight.
We pray that You would remain the central focus of their lives and that with Your help and guidance their marriage would become a union that is honouring to Your name. Fill their hearts with heavenly joy we pray and may the love of Jesus flow like a refreshing river from one to the other – in Jesus name we pray,
Dear Lord Jesus – a wedding is always a happy and joyous occasion, reflecting that future day when the Lord Jesus will come in the clouds to claim His bride – the Church.
We rejoice over this marriage and pray that the pledges they make to one another may come from a sincere heart that places You in the rightful position in their union together – knowing that in a Christ-centred marriage is one that can stand the pressures of life as they rest in Christ - the strength of the Holy Spirit.
May their home be a place of peace and harmony and may all their cares and anxieties be handed over to You, knowing that Your grace is sufficient for all their needs according to Your riches in glory.
Bless them both Lord – bless them as they start their life together and throughout the years that lie ahead and with the passage of time we pray that You will remain in Your rightful position in their hearts and home so that they may be a true Christian witness of Your grace in their lives, in Jesus name we pray,
Dear Lord, we lift up this wedding and thank You that in the beginning You designed that men and women should become one in the bond of marriage and we lift up all Christian marriages and pray that each husband and wife would remain faithful to the other, and also to You Lord… in a world where the holy bond of matrimony is so quickly being eroded away.
Protect those that are married from the temptation that inevitably comes to all who are seeking to live a godly life that is pleasing to You and keep them from developing the world’s mindset - that is increasingly seeking to devalue the established laws of God with man-made alternatives.
Protect the marriages of pastors and Church leaders and indeed ALL Christian marriages. May they be true witnesses to the truth of Your Word not only in the wider world but in the privacy of their own homes, and may the love of the Lord Jesus be very evident in each life as they seek to grow in grace and in a knowledge of You…. In Jesus name we pray,
