A wedding prayer can be offered following a marriage service. This is a time for celebration and for the asking of God’s blessing upon the new family.
Here are some wedding prayers.
O Eternal God, creator and preserver of all, giver of all spiritual grace, the author of everlasting life: Send thy blessing upon this man and this woman, whom we bless in thy name; that they may surely perform and keep the vow and covenant between them made, and may ever remain in perfect love and peace together. Look graciously upon them, that they may love, honor, and cherish each other, and so live together in faithfulness and patience, in wisdom and truth, that their home may be a haven of blessing and a place of peace; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Lord God, our heavenly Father, we give thanks for the moment that brings ________ and _______ together in marriage. We recognize with thanksgiving the journeys that have brought them to this time, and we celebrate with them the hopes they hold for their life together. We ask your blessing upon them, to sustain them through the difficult and uncertain times that come to every relationship. We pray that they may continue to find in each other resources which will nurture their marriage. May they continue to grow together and may their love for one another deepen with the passing of years. We give thanks for the love and support of family and friends. Let us, who share the celebration today, be renewed in our commitments to one another. All this we ask in the spirit we have seen in Jesus Christ. Amen.
