Wedding Anniversary Prayer

Dear Father,

Thank You so much for this day
For today we celebrate (number) years of marriage together.
Thank You that You are journeying with us.
If a three-stranded cord can not be easily broken
You are our third thread.
Your life entwines around us
Making us strong and keeping us close.

Lord, forgive us for the times we have failed and hurt each other.
When we have neglected our friendship together.
When we have not put our partners interests and well-being before our own.
We are truly sorry for these times and resolve to live life differently.

Today we commit ourselves afresh to each other.
To always support, always trust, and always serve our partner.
Lord, come and reignite our love! Inspire our thoughts and fashion our plans!
We are so excited to be married and so thrilled about our future together.

Thank you Lord. We love You.

1 Corinthians 13 - Love

A creative reading of the Apostle Paul's famous hymn about God's love:-

Love is a symbol of eternity. It wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of an end.
