Marriage Prayers and Blessings



Lord, help us to remember when we first met and the strong love that grew between us.

To work that love into practical things so nothing can divide us.

We ask for words both kind and loving, and for hearts always ready to ask forgiveness as well as to forgive.

Dear Lord, we put our marriage into Your hands.




The Marriage Prayer

by Aaron Isaac Guadarrama


Oh Heavenly Father, I have found favor in your eyes,

Truly, Lord you have blessed me.

Today my heart has become one with my wife,

Forever be one, living for you Father for eternity.

I've waited for this moment to arrive;

I've waited patiently to drink the cup of love.

In Holy matrimony, today my Lord,

You have brought us together from above.

There she is, as radiant I had dreamed and imagined,

My new beloved wife.

Here I am, before you Father,

As her new husband, thank you for your blessings,

My Lord guide us as we begin our new lives.

This beautiful gift you have given me I will treasure,

I will hold and guard dear to my heart.

I will not take for granted of your love for us Father,

You are the center of our attention

Indeed the most important part.

Our faith, our hope, our love is in you,

We recognize Father you are the marriage builder.

My deep love for her can only come from my true first love,

The One died on the cross

Who made both of our lives brand new,

Thank you for our salvation, my precious Savior.

Lord, I know today, saying I do, were more than just words,

Was more than just a saying ritual in the wedding ceremony.

To have and to hold,

For richer and for poorer,

In sickness and in health,

Till death separates us,

Lord I pray, I honor what is Sacred,

I pray that I live up to my testimony.

Lord, words can not express the gratitude of my heart the love I have for you,

The answered prayers and blessings you keep pouring like new shower rains.

There is nothing too small or too great that you can not see us through,

I know you will watch over this marriage that was planned and made in heaven.

Yes Lord; guide us with your hand,

As we walk together with you side by side.

Today a new chapter is unfolded; a new journey begins,

Thank you Heavenly Father, for my lovely bride, my sacred gift,

In Jesus name I pray,

A Marriage Blessing

We thank You, O God, for the love You have implanted in our hearts.

May it always inspire us to be kind in our words, considerate of feelings, and concerned for each other's needs and wishes.

Help us to be understanding and forgiving of human weaknesses and failings.

Increase our faith and trust in You and may Your prudence guide our life and love.

Bless our marriage, O God, with peace and happiness, and make our Love fruitful for Your glory and our joy both here and in eternity.
