Thank You For Married Life

Heavenly Father, thank You for all Your goodness and loving kindness to us, and for the beauties and joys of married life. Thank You for knitting these two hearts together in love and bringing them together into the sacred marriage partnership that was instituted by You in the beginning.

Knit them together I pray, in love and unity, and be their ever present support in times of joy as well as sorrow, in prosperity as well as lack, in sickness as well as in health, and provide for all the needs and necessities of life, throughout the course of their marriage together. May Your love and blessing rest upon this newly wed couple, and may their home be a place of peace and contentment, encouragement and hope.

I pray that the love that they have for each other at this dawn of their future together, will continue to grow ever brighter as the years pass. Give to each a heart that is keenly aware of the needs of the other, in preference to their own wants and desires.

May this marriage be one that lifts up the Lord Jesus, and may You remain the author and finisher of their life together, so that their love for each other will reflect and radiate the love they have for You. In Jesus' name,
