Dear Lord,

Thank you for this opportunity of love
You’ve brought into our lives.
Help us to see this love grow
Together, stronger, and within Your Kingdom.

Though we may not be following established tradition
Bless us as we proclaim our love
To each other, to our friends and family
And to You.

Grant us the strength to open our hearts,
Our minds and our souls
To each other
And to You.

Guide us as we join our lives together
Co-mingling our goals
Our dreams
And our strengths.

Help us to overcome or weaknesses
And failings through love,
Tolerance and understanding
As taught to us by Your example.

Protect us from those outside influences that may desire to
Destroy us, for their own reasons.
As we, together, face the challenges
That life presents.

Know that it is Your love for us
And our love for each other
That will
Overcome.

Together, as one voice, we ask
You to forgive our mistakes and shortcomings
Though we are thankful for the knowledge
That You already have.

We ask that you bless our love and our lives
That we may hold on to that love
Until the day
That we no longer walk this Earth.

In the name of Your Son, Jesus,
We pray.
