Lord of life and love, we pray for all who are preparing for marriage;
for those who are already married
and for those who find their marriages difficult.
Be with them all;
in their joy and sadness, their hope and their expectations,
and above all,
help them to understand that you hold them in love each moment of their lives.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Lord Jesus, as we prepare for this wedding,
we ask that You would be our most honoured guest.
When you attended your friends’ wedding in Cana,
you demonstrated your power by supplying what was lacking.
Jesus, please be with us in the planning and help us see any details we might be neglecting.
Please give us the love and wisdom to deal with any unforeseen challenges or issues.
We rejoice in this celebration to come.
We pray for protection for our friends and family as they travel to the wedding.
Marriage was Your idea, Lord,
we ask that this celebration will be a wonderful way to begin a brilliant marriage.
A Wedding Blessing
Lord bless this beautiful couple with love and hope we pray.
Keep alive forever more the vows they’ve pledged today.
May you bless their dreams and visions,
And keep them always safe.
May peace and joy be with them now
On this their wedding day.
