Prayer For A Newly Married Couple

Heavenly Father, how we thank You for the institution of marriage and we pray your blessing on the beautiful gift of marriage – and today Lord we lift up a dear couple to you - these newlyweds, who have made their pledge to each other, and before Your throne… and we pray Your special blessing on their holy union.

Lord, may You be the lifted-up in their lives and in their home, so that in the days that lie ahead the precious bond of marriage may be strengthened and their love for each other and for You, grow and blossom - as together they seek to have their lives enriched with Your presence.

Lord as they start out in married life help them to talk together – and to You… and help them to share their joys and sorrows with each other and to keep You at the centre of their marriage.

May each develop the grace of seeking the best for the other and thinking of their spouse as more important than themselves and Lord, we pray that You would help them to grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, in Whose name we pray,

Amen.
