This day I pray for marriage. Strengthen marriages that are crumbling, bring peace to those that are seemingly falling apart. I pray that marriage may be held in high esteem and protected from separations and divorce. Help us to remember that marriage is more than just a slip of paper, but it is a sacred union.
I pray for couples who are struggling in their marriage and ask that they may seek what help they need and find peace again in their relationship. I ask that they may But if that is not Your will help them to find understanding and forgiveness.
I pray for those in strong marriages, keep them feeling joy and love in their relationship. Help them to be a model for others, let them to share their ups and downs so that others may learn from them.
I pray for those about to enter into marriage, asking that they may enter knowing the commitment that stands before them. Let them join together in a relationship built on love, trust and communication that is strengthened over time.
And Lord, I pray for those who are seeking marriage, for those who are still waiting. Remind them Lord that you are always with them so that they may not feel such loneliness. Grant them patience and peace as they wait.
Bless all marriages this day.
