Prayer for a Marriage

Dear God,

We come to You today with grateful hearts, thanking You for the gift of marriage. We pray for Your continued guidance and strength in our relationship, that we may honor and serve You in all that we do.

Help us to grow in love and understanding, to communicate with kindness and respect, and to always put each other first. Protect us from harm and temptation, and lead us closer to You every day.

We pray that our marriage would be a blessing to those around us, and that through our love and commitment to each other, we may be a light and an example to others.

We thank You for the joy and happiness that marriage brings, and we ask for Your blessings on our future together.

In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

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.
