My God,
You are the author of love and the giver of marriage. I come before You with a heavy heart, lifting up my friend’s marriage to You. I pray that You would bring Your peace, wisdom, and restoration to their relationship. Help them to grow in love and understanding for one another, and to be quick to forgive and slow to anger.

Lord, I ask that You would strengthen their commitment to one another and help them to prioritize their relationship above all else. Grant them the grace to communicate openly and honestly with one another, and to seek Your guidance in all of their decisions. May they find joy and fulfillment in their marriage, and may their love continue to grow stronger each day.

I pray that You would protect their union from any forces that seek to divide them, and that You would surround them with supportive friends and family who will encourage and uplift them. Help them to build a solid foundation on Your word and to keep You at the center of their marriage. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
