7 Prayers for Wedding Anniversary: First, 5th, 25th, and 50th

God instituted marriage and weddings. In the bible, He commanded Adam to be fruitful and multiply. He brought Eve to Adam in the bible and called them husband and wife. 

Therefore, God is interested in your marital affairs. He wants to hear you pray about it. 

When we begin the journey of marriage, there are so many uncertainties in our minds. 

However, with God on your side, your marriage does not have to fall apart like others.

I remember when I got married some years ago. I did not imagine it lasting as long as I have. The reason is that the things we have heard and seen in recent times make marriage seem temporary.

Those who are celebrating their first, 5th, 25th or 50th wedding anniversary can say these prayers. Invite God to keep blessing your marriage or to someone you know is celebrating their wedding anniversary.

There are 7 wedding anniversary prayers you should make. Read on to find out about these powerful spiritual weapons.

This is predominantly a prayer of thanksgiving to God about your wedding anniversary.

Everything in your life stems from God. There is nothing we have that God has not blessed us with.

This is why we must always learn to acknowledge Him for the good things he has done in our lives. One such is wedding anniversaries. 

This particular prayer of thanksgiving can be made on every wedding anniversary

It must be made in the early hours of the morning. You should say this prayer when nobody has called in to greet and congratulate you and your spouse. 

This way, you are proving to God that you acknowledge Him as the source and sustainer of your marital lie

Every wedding anniversary I have celebrated, this is the first way I pray to God. It has kept my marriage fixed, peaceful, and beautiful.

Start your prayer with the following Bible verse, to bless the marriage:

But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” — Mark 10:6-9.

Has your husband passed away? Pray for him. These prayers will help him in heaven.

4) 5th wedding anniversary prayer

“Lord, it’s been 5 years since I got married and that’s why I decided to dedicate a little of my wedding anniversary day to pray to You. Today I want to pray to You, to thank You, but also to ask You for help in my life and in my marriage.

After these 5 years, I realized that life as a couple is not easy, there are challenges, problems and adversities to be resolved. There are still bad people meddling in our lives and trying to ruin our marriage.

That’s why I pray to you Lord. To begin with, I would like to ask You for protection against all evils. So that You protect our relationship, our marriage and our love from all evil, all envy and all the evil eye.

Then I would like to ask You for financial help so that we can bear all the high costs of living, to be able to support our children and to give them a better life.

Finally, I wanted to ask You for peace. I want peace to continue living my happily married life, with my husband, my children and all my family.

I thank You Lord for never leaving us and for blessing our relationship from day one until now. Amen.”

Celebrating your 25th wedding anniversary is a big deal. Not everybody will ever accomplish this

Therefore, I congratulate you for coming this far!

Now, this special prayer is customized for you because of how long you have been building your marriage. 

At this point, you can become confident in yourself and begin to neglect God, which gives the devil an allowance to scatter your marriage. 

However, through this prayer, you can express your heartfelt gratitude to God for what he has done and also talk to Him about crucial and important details that are necessary for the success of your marital life. 

If you’re having a ceremony to celebrate, start by saying this Bible verse:

“Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up. Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; But how can one be warm alone? Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”Ecclesiastes 4:9-12.

I thank You for never abandoning us, even when it seemed that nothing was going to end well. I know that You, my God, have been by our side since day one and I know that You will remain by our side until death does us part.
