In the last few weeks, I have attended two bridal showers. At each one, the host asked for each attender to share some words of wisdom with the bride-to-be. Many pieces of advice were offered, including

  • don’t go to bed angry
  • pray together daily
  • and continue to date your spouse

  • Please take a moment to pray with me for these couples as well as the many other couples that are getting married in these summer months:

    “Lord, I pray for each couple that is getting married. May you bind them together as one. I ask that you would reveal to them the sweet joy of knowing another person so intimately. Use them for Your glory each moment of every day.

    I also ask, Lord, that you would be with each marital couple that is represented in this group. We pray that our marital relationship is pleasing in Your sight. Continue to work in us, both as individuals as well as a couple. May You be glorified!

    In Jesus’ name we pray–“

    Genesis 2:24 (NIV) For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.

    Your turn to share: What words of wisdom would you share with a bride-to-be?
