Oh gracious and humble God, thank you for choosing us to stand for the Holy and righteous covenant of marriage. Your word states in Genesis 2:24, “A man shall leave his father and mother and cleave unto his wife”. Teach us both how to leave and cleave to each other daily. Father we understand that no human knows how to love perfectly only you have the power to do this in and through our lives daily. The sanctity and identity of marriage is reflected in the love that we share as husband and wife daily. Teach us how to love more perfectly and deepen our relationship with you so that our commitment as husband and wife will be “knitted” uniquely together so that everyone we meet and minister to, will trust that Marriage between husband and wife is still popular. Help us to celebrate not just a 12-month anniversary, but to live each day in full adoration of what your covenant love for a husband and wife looks like…… As a faithful husband/wife, teach me how to trust your will for my marriage, and how to fill the needs of my wife/husband and show me how to love my cherished companion in a way, where your kingdom will be glorified through the love that we share…..may we be totally honest, and faithfully committed, to the intimacy, legacy, and call to serve each other selflessly as husband and wife, I ask this prayer in Jesus name…….Amen!
