Prayer for married couples
(a prayer that celebrates the wonder of being married)

Dear Father God,

Thank you for the blessing of marriage.
Thank you that we find shelter as two beloved children, cradled in your wings.

Thank you for the safety found in intimacy.
May we walk closely with one another, sharing in the joys and sorrows of life.

Thank you that you are in the centre of all we do.
Come shape and direct our lives together moment by moment.

Thank you for the fruits of love, joy, patience, kindness, and faithfulness.
May our marriage be fresh in this new growth everyday.

Amen.




Prayer for couples in trouble
(a prayer for married couples going through a hard time, that they would be able to stay together)


O Lord,

Thank you that we are known, loved and protected by you.
Thank you that you walk closely beside us, even if we choose to be alone.

We ask that you would come and shelter both of us through this difficult season.
May your light fall upon our relationship, bringing clarity and truth.
May your word breathe new hope into our minds, bringing freedom and grace.
May your peace settle in our hearts, bringing calmness and serenity.

We come before you, we wait upon you. Come Holy Spirit. Come in music, come in beauty, come in adventure, come in fellowship. Come Living Lord and pour your love afresh into our hearts.

Amen.




Prayer for someone you love

Lord, you know the deep love I have for this beautiful soul.
We are so thankful to have found each other.
I lift them to you now, and ask for your blessing.
Please watch over them, keep and protect them.

Lord, help me to care for them as you do.
May freedom and grace surround them.
Show me how to honour them and bless our connection.
May your mercy and love follow us all the days of our lives.

We love you.
