A Wedding Prayer

A few years ago I was asked to say the prayer for my Cousins Wedding.  I thought wow, what an honor, how wonderful.  Then… I started to write and it was not easy.  I wanted to portray to my cousin and her now husband what I wish for them in the future.  I wanted it to be perfect of course.  So, for all of you who may be struggling I want to share my prayer.

If you would like to share your prayer please contact us.

 

A Wedding Prayer

 Teresa and Shawn

8-25-07

Lord, we have gathered here today

To celebrate the love and commitment

That has united Terri and Shawn,

In a wonderful bond of marriage.

We ask that you bless this food that

We are about to receive with grateful hearts.

May your blessings descend also upon

These newly married spouses,

Their families and friends

Who join us here today.

We sincerely pray that you bless

Terri and Shawn

With a love to last forever.

In sickness and in health may they find your strength

In doubts and troubles may they see your light

May their love continue to grow with each new challenge

May they always find strength in each other

May they be blessed with children to keep their days and nights busy

And when the children sleep

And they look into each others eyes,

May they always feel what they feel today.

May they live each moment of each day for each other.

                                                    – Amen

(prayer written by: Nadene Woelfel)
