Prayers For Grace

A prayer in the middle of your wedding service may be an appropriate follow-up to any poetry or scripture that is read. It also provides a quiet moment before the BIG question and the vows. However, in weddings that need to be shortened, this prayer portion can be omitted.


O God, the Author and Giver of all good things, we bless you for the gifts of love and friendship and for the joys which gladden our lives. May your blessing rest upon and remain with {Name 2} and {Name 1} as they pledge their mutual love. Bless this day, and lead us always in your ways of love and peace. Amen.


O God, we pray for {Name 2} and {Name 1} who want to begin their life together with you and always continue it with you. Help them never to hurt and never to grieve one another. Help them to share all their work, all their hopes, all their dreams all their successes and all their failures, all their sorrows and all their joys. Help them to have no secrets from one another, so that they may truly be one. Keep them always true to one another, and grant that the years ahead may draw them ever closer to one another. Grant that nothing may ever make them drift apart. And as they live with one another, help them to live with you, so that their love which they are to pledge now may grow perfect in your love, for you are the God whose name is love. This we ask in Jesus' name. Amen.


Gracious God, as {Name 2} and {Name 1} pledge themselves to each other, help them and bless them; that their love may be sure, and their vows may be true. As you have brought these two persons together, inspire them by your Spirit, give them a new frame of heart fit for their new relationship so that with steadfast love they may honour the promises they make this day. Amen.


Gracious God, bless {Name 2}, and {Name 1}, who come now to join themselves together in marriage, that they may give their vows to each other in the strength and spirit of your faithful love. Let the promise of your Word root and grow in their lives. Grant them vision and hope to persevere in trust and friendship all their days. Keep ever before them the needs of your world. By your grace enable them to be true disciples of Jesus Christ, in whose name we pray. Amen.


Out of this tangled world, O God, you have drawn {Name 2} and {Name 1} together and are binding them firmly by the sure insights of love. We thank you for the homes in which they have been nurtured in their formative years; for parents who have sacrificed on their behalf; for the Church which has awakened them to the meaning of eternal life.

Gracious God, bless them as they come before you and their families and friends to affirm the choice that they have made of each other and their intention to establish a home where your love may be celebrated in the family. Grant them a seriousness of purpose that they may be kept from empty words and casual commitments.


Be with them and let your love be the example and the power to help their love grow. May you nurture them all the days of their lives that their dreams and their aspirations for life may find fulfillment in the doing of your will in all things.

We ask this in Jesus' name. Amen.
