Prayers for the Royal Wedding

Churches prepare prayers for Prince William and Catherine Middleton

The Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales has released a prayer for use around the time of the Royal Wedding.

Heavenly Father,
we ask your blessing
upon his Royal Highness, Prince William and Catherine
as they pledge their love for each other in marriage.
May your love unite them through their lives.
Grant them the strength to serve you, our country and the Commonwealth
with integrity and faithfulness.
Through Christ our Lord.

The Church of England has prepared a prayer for Prince William and Catherine Middleton and all couples preparing for their wedding. It can be used in private prayer, in groups or within
public worship.

God of all grace,
friend and companion,
look in favour on William and Catherine
and all who are made one in marriage.
In your love deepen their love
and strengthen their wills
to keep the promises they will make,
that they may continue
in life-long faithfulness to each other;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
