Powerful Prayers For A Wedding Reception
1. Dear Lord, thank you for all that you have given me.
Dear Lord, thank you for all that you have given me.
Thank you for my family members, who love me and support me unconditionally.
Thank you for the gifts of friendship and kindness I’ve been blessed with in my life.
Thank you for this beautiful day and everything it represents: love, joy, hope, strength—and everything else we hope to find in each other’s arms tonight as we commit ourselves to one another in marriage; may those arms always remain open to receive us with grace and tenderness when needed most.
2. Lord, thank You for Your goodness to us.
Lord, thank You for Your goodness to us.
God is good, always good. He is with us always and in control of everything that happens in our lives. He listens to us and watches over us at all times, even when we feel like He isn’t listening or watching. God wants a relationship with each and every one of His children—me included! Thank You, Lord, for being so present in my life today!
3. Dear Lord, thank You for the beauty of this day.
Dear Lord, thank You for the beauty of this day. Thank You for the beauty of nature and for the people who have gathered to celebrate this union. Thank you for the food we are about to eat and the music we will be listening to. Amen
4. Dear Lord, as we come together today as family and friends to celebrate this special occasion, we ask that You would be with us.
Dear Lord, as we come together today as family and friends to celebrate this special occasion, we ask that You would be with us. Please surround the bride and groom with Your love. May their love for one another grow stronger each day.
O God, please surround all the guests in love and peace. May every heart be filled with joy as we gather here today to celebrate this union between two individuals who have chosen each other to share their lives together.
Please bless this marriage by helping them find happiness together; help them learn from each other’s strengths and weaknesses; help them become better people because of their relationship with one another; give them patience when they disagree on things they disagree—and always remind them that You are in control of everything in life!
5. Thank You, Lord, for blessing us with the gift of love.
- Thank you, Lord, for the gift of love.
- Thank you for giving us the blessing of marriage.
- Thank you for giving us our family, who share in this great day with us as we all come together to witness the union of two people who love each other dearly.
- Thank you for bringing all these wonderful friends into our lives and allowing them to be a part of this special occasion!
6. Thank You, Lord, for Your presence in our midst today.
Prayers can be used to ask for help, to thank God for His goodness, or to pray for our marriage. Here are two examples of how you can use prayers in your wedding ceremony:
- Thank You, Lord, for Your presence in our midst today. We know that without You there would be no love and without love, there would be no marriage. So we come to You today asking that You fill us with the love that only comes from You, Lord Jesus Christ, and may this love give us strength as we commit ourselves one to another forevermore.
- Dear Father God who loves us so much that He sent His only Son into the world so that we could experience eternal life; bless this marriage with Your Holy Spirit; make it fruitful as husband and wife walk together through life; bring them together into a place where they can trust each other completely; enable them always to share their thoughts openly with each other so they will grow closer together through silence rather than apart from talking too much about themselves all the time which leads nowhere except perhaps divorce court if not before then later on down the line when children get older because neither parent knows what else has happened since then until now when hopefully things will work out better than expected or at least something good will come out of all this messiness despite its imperfection because after all nothing is perfect except for Your Son’s sacrifice on Calvary’s cross whereby He died upon Himself so that now everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins by grace alone through faith alone because none deserves salvation but rather only those who repent sincerely turn away from evil ways (Romans 3:23-25)
7. We ask You, Lord, to bless our marriage and bless our love with Your presence.
We ask You, Lord, to bless our marriage and bless our love with Your presence. May Your divine grace guide us on this new journey together as we build a life of love built on trust, honesty, and integrity in You. Empower us to be Christ-like always even when we do not feel like it. Amen
8. Help us to never lose sight of Your great love and tender mercy toward us, and give us the grace to reflect that same love and mercy in our relationship as husband and wife.
Perhaps you have been married for years, or perhaps it is your first wedding. Either way, planning a wedding can be stressful. Asking for God’s guidance and help will help you through the process. You may not know what to do next in life; you may feel lost, or unsure of yourself and your future as husband and wife. You can always pray when you are unsure what to do next in life – ask for help from God when you are in need! God is always there to help us! We can also ask God to help us in our marriage – He loves us so much that He wants nothing more than our happiness! If we ask Him now, He will listen!
9. We can always pray when we are unsure what to do next in our lives
In moments of uncertainty, we can always pray. Praying is a way of giving thanks and showing gratitude for the gifts and blessings in our lives. It is also a way to remind ourselves that we are not alone in this world—we have God by our side!
When you find yourself at a loss for what to do next or feeling overwhelmed by challenges that seem too difficult to overcome on your own, take time out to pray. Take some deep breaths; close your eyes; remember that God loves you no matter what challenges come your way; ask Him for help, guidance, and strength; thank Him for all He has given you already (this will make it easier).
We all need prayer at times like these—especially when it is difficult for us to see past our current situation into something better ahead on the road ahead.
Prayers are great for any occasion and can be the difference between success and failure. Whether you are looking for a job, trying to get yourself out of debt, or just need some help in your personal relationships then you should consider using these powerful prayers for weddings. They are easy enough to memorize so that anyone can use them when needed and they will surely bring peace into your life when times seem tough!
