God Bless Your Marriage Today and Always


Father, we pray You will bless this marriage with Your amazing love

As they walk with You may their love for You and one another refine

Water their relationship with the sweet fragrance of Your love

Flowing river of God’s grace draw them to thoughts above


In the business of their lives give them times of sanctuary

Restorative peace

Restful renewal

Repairing of body, mind, and spirit


In Your created things there is joy if we take the time to see it

A robin redbreast with birdatttude

Strutting its stuff as it moves

Squabbling with other birds for its community position

Squirrels stuffing their cheeks with any food they can find

An eagle soaring through the sky

Trees dancing gently with the wind

Children laughing as they play

The smell of a rose

The sounds of silence


May the richest blessings of God be in your life

Comfort in times of strife

Calling you closer to our Father and one another

Infilling you with outstretched love for your sister, your brother

Let Spirit love flow

Compassion for the hurting

Reaching out to the abused, dejected and rejected

A love given to others that is as wide as the sea of Galilee

Telling others how from their prisons of pain they can be forever set free


Take time to see the message of God’s love in all things He has created

In the present of all He means to the both of you

Father, let each breath this couple breathes be filled with this knowledge

They are the apple of Your affection

Your love looking into their eyes

Your hope helping them see their brighter tomorrow

Your healing love for them and one another


Bless their marriage today and always
