Prayer For An Engagement Ceremony

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,
