Our Engagement and Betrothal Prayer

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, and may we grow in grace and in a knowledge of our Lord and Saviour together, in Whose name we pray,
 
Amen
