7 Relationship Prayers for Engaged Couples

Heading down a path of marriage is a big change for couples. These relationship prayers for engaged couples will keep you focused and on the right track as you head down walking down the aisle as man and wife.

Prayer #1

O Lord,
You are Lord over all creation. Everyday we are surrounded by the miracle of life. Your creativity bursts across the skies at sunset, it emerges from spring buds that bloom. Thank you for the beauty of marriage. Like three streams that merge into one single river, you are journeying with us. You are the creative, restoring current that runs through our relationship.

May we stand strong in our friendship like a tall oak tree. May we pull together through the different seasons of our lives so that we become closer. May we ride out the storms and rest in the fair weather. May we care for one another, so that we blossom and bloom as individuals. May we have your vision as we soar above the everyday to glimpse the kingdom of heaven. May we learn the truth of real beauty as we change and age together. And may we reflect your love, hope, and truth that you have poured into our union. Thank you that through your strength and grace we are able to love, care and provide for our loved ones and the wider world.

Prayer #2

Dear Lord,

We are so thrilled to have found each other, and excited to be engaged to be married. We are so blessed to have discovered a best friend, and feel content by the intimacy and trust we have found together. We are so thankful to be your children, adopted into your family, and so grateful to be living in your grace. We feel so privileged to be planning our special wedding day. May it be fill of your truth, hope and love.

Prayer #3

Dear Heavenly Father, how good You are to give us the gift of anticipation about joyous occasions to come! Thank you for the person You have ordained for me to marry, and for directing our relationship thus far. I pray that you would continue to make your will known to us, in big ways and small, as we pursue your will together. We long to glorify you in our relationship, now and forevermore. It’s in the name of my Savior, Jesus Christ, that I pray. Amen.

Prayer #4

Lord, help us remember that our love for each other reflects your love for us. May we empower one another to fulfill our purpose in life. May our love be an example for our children and a model for all. May our experience as a couple give us a preview of the oneness we will experience someday. Help us to see that everything is either love or a call for love. Help us to celebrate our similarities and honor our differences. Help us to accept our limitations and utilize our talents. Thank you for this opportunity, this life, and for my loving partner. Amen.

Prayer #5

She and I have set the date. I’ve never known anything so sure in all my life. Lord, I love her. It’s just so right. So right, too, to thank you. To thank you for what you’ve given me as a person: my talents, my abilities, my self. I thank you for my family, my brothers and sisters. In a unique way they all have something to do with this. Thanks for her, and her family, and all that made her. The experts have little to say to me, now that I’ve experienced love. And you, Lord, you are what we share. I love you, too.

Bless our marriage. Draw us to you. We’re a trinity: she and you and I.

Prayer #6

Bless our lives in our journey together and fill us with Your Glory. May we be bonded together, Lord, in the type of love Your Son Jesus showed on the cross. Let our lives be a wonderful reflection of Your grace, as we abide in it forever. In Jesus’ name, I humbly pray, Amen.

Prayer #7

Lord, send out your Spirit and renew the face of the earth. Father, Jesus gave his life because he loved deeply and completely. May our love for one another be all encompassing and all consuming. Make our love be pleasurable. Make it be as creative as it is stable, as passionate as it is respectful, as gentle as it is strong, so that all who know us will see in our love the hand of you, our creator.

If and when we are blessed with children, may they thrive in the passionate and energizing love that has its beginning in the love you have for the world and all its peoples. We ask this through, Jesus, our Lord and brother.
