Looking Forward to Marriage
Gracious God, how I look forward to finding someone
special to be my partner for life. Give me a sensitive heart,
a discerning mind, and a ready will. Help me understand
the mystery of Your love; help me to learn to share.
As I meet my future spouse, please help us to learn how
to commit our lives to one another, to our families, and
to your world. Nourish our sexuality and guide it to
good and honest ends. As we look forward to the commitment
of marriage, may You be the common center
of our hearts and of our home. Bless and strengthen all
couples with love and life. Amen.
