A Prayer for An Engaged Couple
Thank you, Lord, for bringing us together and for the gift of our love which has already brought us so much joy.
Grant that we may always continue to love each other with reverence, patience and generosity.
In the hurried days of the final preparations, grant us the calmness to reflect on the moment when you will seal and sanctify our promises, binding us together in your love forever.
In joy or sorrow, in richness or poverty, in sickness and in health, may our love grow all the days of our lives. Amen
