Our Father in heaven Hallowed be Your Name Y@HOVAH RA’AH LORD our Shepherd Ps. 23:1 Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done. On earth as it is in Heaven.

  • Pray for a true understanding of Marriage.
  • Good counselling for those marrying in church
  • Good guidance for those choosing to marry outside the church
  • Marriages based on Christian principles

Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. Gen. 2:24

Father we pray for marriages and thank You that as Your word says  “the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us”. [Rom. 5:5] Because You are in them we acknowledge that love reigns supreme.  That nothing is done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind esteeming each other better than oneself. [Phil. 2:3] We pray that love is displayed in full expression, enfolding and knitting each other together in truth making them perfect for every good work to do Your will working in each other that which is pleasing in Your sight. [Heb. 13:21]

We pray that they would conduct themselves and their marriages honourably and becomingly. We ask that they would esteem their marriages as precious, worthy and of great price recognising the covenant they have made with each other. [Mal. 2:14] We pray that they would commit themselves  to live in mutual harmony and accord with one another; delighting in each other, being of the same mind and united in spirit.
Father we ask that the partners be gentle, compassionate, courteous, tenderhearted and humble minded. [Is. 32:17] We pray that they would seek peace keeping their hearts in quietness and assurance. Because they follow after love and dwell in peace their prayers are not hindered in any way in the Name of Jesus. THey are heirs together of the grace of God.

We pray for ministers who prepare couples for marriage that they will be guided by Your Holy Spirit to provide the right counselling and help them understand the covenant they are making with each other before You.  

Father God we thank You that marriages grow stronger day by day bonded in unity because it is founded on Your Word and rooted and grounded in Your love.  [Prayer for Harmonious Marriage by Germaine Copeland (modified)]

Please pray and share with your intercessors, Bible Study Groups, Prayer Groups, Church Prayers, Men & Women’s Groups. Thank you.
