Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your grace which You so generously, and continuously, bless us with. You are worthy of all praise and all glory.
I lift my hands in humble worship and adoration. Bless and empower my words and thoughts today, O Lord that they may be pleasing to you, my Rock and my Redeemer.
Romans 12:9-10 Don’t just pretend that You love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Stand on the side of the good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.

Guide and direct our relationship
I pray that You continue to guide our footsteps and our lives as we walk in agreement, according to Your will. I trust that our new relationship is a blessing from You, O Lord and I pray that You guide us and show us what we need to know.
Open the eyes of my heart, Father God, and reveal anything that is not of You. May I not go into this relationship love-blind but rather spirit-wise.

Draw us closer
Bless our relationship and draw us both even closer to You and to your will for our lives. May I never be unequally yoked.
Lord, teach and guide us that we will always seek You first in everything we do. May our love be fill with genuine affection and may we honor each other at all times.
1 Peter 3:7 In the same way, You husbands must give honor to Your wives. Treat her with understanding as You live together. She may be weaker than You are, but she is Your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. If You don’t treat her as You should, Your prayers will not be heard.
Proverbs 31:10,11 Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is worth more than precious rubies. Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life.
Bond us together
Bless our lives in our journey together and fill us with Your Glory. May we be bonded together, Lord, in the type of love Your Son Jesus showed on the cross.
Let our lives be a wonderful reflection of Your grace, as we abide in it forever. In Jesus’ name, I humbly pray, Amen.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
Heavenly Father, you are three and yet one, and it is a mystery. But Father, this one thing we know, that out of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, you created us to be loved by you and to share in your divine relationship.
We were created to fellowship with you and others, just as it is your nature that Three can become one. Even so Lord, you have blessed us in the realms of the Earth to have those human connections with one another, for us to experience being husbands and wives, parents and children, co-laborers and friends.
These relationships are a blessing to us, and we thank you that we can connect with people in these various ways, and express our friendship and love through these relationships.

Better Relationships between Parents and Children
Father, we thank you for the relationships of parents and children, that we can experience the care-free living of being totally dependent on our parents, to grow up and then know what it is to be on the other side, as you Father, have cared for us as a loving parent.
Oh what a wonderful window into the Heart of God has been revealed in the relationship between parents and children. For the children, we pray that their hearts will be full to receive the love, instruction of their parents, in an environment of trust and free from fear.
For the parents, we release wisdom and discernment in the way they should raise their children. We bless the relationships of parents and children. May great joy and peace continue to abound in the hearts of all that make up this family.

Better Relationships between Husband and Wife
Oh Heavenly Father, we thank you for the union of husbands and wives. Lord, you say this is a great mystery, that two shall become one, and be joined together by you.
Father, we bless those who have entered into marriage. We speak abundant peace, love and joy over their union, may they grow ever deeper in intimacy with each other.
We speak divine protection over them, from those who would seek to do them harm or bring division. Guide their steps along the way, as they grow and mature in the knowledge of each other and in your Grace, O God.
