We humbly come before You today to seek Your blessings and guidance for our marriage. We are fully aware that it is only through Your grace and love that our union is made strong.
We implore Your continued protection and provision for our relationship. Grant us the wisdom and strength to communicate openly and honestly with each other and to always prioritize each other’s needs above our own.
Help us to navigate the challenges that may arise in our marriage with trust in Your plan for our lives together.
We pray for a deeper understanding and commitment to the sacred covenant of marriage that we have entered into before You. We pledge to love, honor, and respect each other, in sickness and in health, in wealth and in poverty, through good times and bad, until death do us part.
We ask for Your blessings upon our children and our future together as a family. We trust in Your faithfulness and Your love to sustain us through all of life’s adventures.
We give You all the honor and glory, now and forever. Amen.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ESV
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Matthew 19:4-6 ESV
He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”
Colossians 3:18-19 ESV
Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.

Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.

Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.
