Marriage Prayer – Grant Us the Strength to Hold Fast to Our Vows

 

Dear Heavenly Father,

Grant us the strength to hold fast to our vows. When we got married we promised to love, honor, and cherish each other as long as we both shall live. And so we ask that you teach us to love the way that we should, with patience and kindness, forgiveness and grace.

Show us the best way to bestow honor one to another.

Open our hearts to fully cherish each other, and open our eyes to see the blessings we have.

Finally, Lord, may we never take these vows for granted, but rather fulfill them with honor and strength.

In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. – Hebrews 12:1-3, KJV

____________________________

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. – Hebrews 12:1-3, NIV
