Prayer for a New Marriage  

prayer for a new marriage

Lord, I praise you for giving me a godly spouse and allowing us to share a lifetime together.

Marriage was your idea according to Genesis 2:24. You wanted two people to build a life as husband and wife for the sake of building your kingdom.

Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother, and will join with his wife, and they will be one flesh. Genesis 2:24 

Whenever I look at my spouse, I can’t help but give you glory.

Bless our marriage and make it prosper with each passing year. Be in our midst daily, in the good and challenging times.

May your love keep us together in a bond of unity that allows us to multiply what you have put in our hands.

Help us remain in this covenant of love just as we promised each other on our wedding day.

We will show love and kindness to each other all the days of our lives together. May it be a testimony to others who hope to tie the knot one day.   

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Lord, you have sustained our marriage for this long and for that I give you the glory.

Thank you for the years that my spouse and I have shared. We have had many great times and we carry with us great memories which we will cherish forever.

Right now our marriage is struggling and we need your help.

Give my spouse and I a spirit of understanding and take away the spirit of strife between us.

Help us sit together and talk about the things that are not working in our marriage without fighting.

Show us the root cause of the problems we are experiencing and give us the wisdom to know how to handle them.
