Here, finally, is a short prayer which you might say together in preparation for your marriage:
Good and gracious God,we praise you and we thank you
as our wedding day draws near.
Bless us as we prepare
to marry in the Lord.
May we come before you on that day
with love in our hearts
and your grace in our souls.
May we give witness to the world
of our faith and our trust
in you, our God,
Creator of love, Creator of life.
We make our prayer through Christ our Lord.
