It's a pleasure offering you this unique wedding dinner prayer. Hopefully, you make it completely yours for the upcoming wedding - feel free to alter the prayer to fit your specific situation. Join me later for a Bible Study Lesson, and please tell others about the site!
Don't just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically. Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying. When God's people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality.
Bless those who persecute you. Don't curse them; pray that God will bless them. Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with each other. Romans 12:9-16a.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Let's bow our heads for the Wedding Dinner Prayer:
Dear Heavenly Father,
We praise your holy and righteous name.
We ask that your Spirit be with us and in us,
giving us all glad hearts on this very special occasion.
Lord, you providentially brought __man__ and __woman__ together some time ago,
and tonight we celebrate their beautiful wedding day.
This marriage begins with hope and joy - May those remain forever.
Lord, we pray that their vows are branded on their hearts,
protecting them from temptations, keeping them loyal and true to one another.
Let mutual respect be their normal daily practice,
protecting the dignity you uniquely designed in each of them.
Draw __man__ closer to you and your word, so he becomes the godly husband you expect, Lord;
and draw __woman__ nearer to you, that she be his pleasing, God-fearing wife.
Mostly, let Christian love prevail through all things, and above all things,
even the most difficult of circumstances.
Meld their precious, young hearts into a single heart that always seeks to glorify You.
May your strengths, Lord, be made manifest through their weaknesses.
Father, thank you for all the people who helped prepare for this grand evening.
All of their hard work made this a perfect wedding night for __man__ and __woman__.
Thank you for bringing everyone here, and please return them home safely tonight.
Bless the food, drink, and entertainment that we're about to enjoy together.
Take loving care of this bride and groom while away on their honeymoon.
Lord, please be present in their home as they establish themselves in their neighborhood. Keep them protected from harm. Help them to love their neighbors, looking out for their best interests.
Let your grace abound on this new family, blessing them with future children. We lift __man__ and __woman__ to you and ask for a long, happy and fruitful marriage.
To God be the glory.
In the name of Jesus Christ.
