Thank You for this marriage that You have given us, and thank You for guiding us to where we are today.
You say that love is patient and kind, and yet there are days when I’m anything but patient, and I’m hardly as kind as I should be. Your loving compassion and grace, has reached down to us more than we have ever deserved. Thank You.
Please teach us to give more than we are given and to forgive before we’re forgiven.
Teach us to love as You love. Help us to reach out in grace. And finally grant us the strength to hold onto each other when everything in this world threatens to pull us apart.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
