Great and Mighty God,
We give you praise for this joyous occasion and for the marriage of Lyle and Alexandra.
We look to you, asking that you, in the abundance of your favor, would strengthen and uphold them in this sweet union. May it be as unassailable as that union that exists betwixt Christ & his church. May they be one, even as the Godhead itself is one.
We pray that you would fill their home with rivers of love and cause joy to daily grace their service to one another.
May you grant them many years of happiness together and allow them to enjoy the delight of many children.
May it always be that they are faithful to their vows, ready to forgive, patient with each other’s infirmities, tender in speech, and firm in devotion.
Above all, may this relationship that you have fashioned be strong in the service of Christ.
And Lord, we ask your blessing upon these evening hours. May our celebrations be pleasing in your sight and a testimony to the depths of our gratitude for all your benefits.
