A Marrying Prayer...

Here is a prayer on marriage or a “Marrying Prayer” from the book Celtic Daily Prayer. It touched me today and I thought I would share it with all of you.


All we have came only from You. Everything we hope for will only come from Your love. All that we enjoy You gave us freely. Everything we ask for is only Yours to give.

Give us the light to understand. Put fire behind our will. Be at the beginning of all we begin. Excite our love, strengthen our weakness, encompass our desire.

Shield our thoughts, and cradle our bodies, and as we breathe this prayer, in our hearts may we feel Your presence.
