Wedding Anniversary Prayer

This page features three inspiring prayers and blessings for those who are currently celebrating their wedding anniversary together. To begin with there is a prayer that reflects on God's presence in their marriage and offers a renewal of commitment to each other. There is also a short prayer for couples, and an ancient Judeo-Christian blessing suitable for writing in card or posting online and sending to the husband and wife.

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.

Prayer for love relationship

(a prayer for couples)

As we draw near to you,
Quiet our minds
Refresh our spirits
Inspire our hearts
Bind us together
With your truth.
We dwell in your promise
Rest in your grace
Bathe in your restoration
Meditate on your goodness.
Bind us together
With your love.

Ancient Blessing
A traditional Judo-Christian blessing for your marriage:-

May The Lord Bless You

May The Road Rise Up To Meet You

A Traditional Irish Blessing

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
the rain fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of his hand.

A Beautiful Marriage Prayer

Julie Palmer from Prayerscapes leads us in an uplifting blessing prayer:-

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.
