5 Heart-Felt Prayers For Son’s Wedding

What joy you must be experiencing to see your son getting ready to get married. 

God called you to raise this child, it hasn’t always been perfect but God’s grace is. Now this same God is calling you to let him go. 

Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. (Genesis 2:24 ESV)

You may be nervous or unsure if you can but deep down you know you are happy to obey God’s word. So with open arms, you trust God with this next stage in your son’s life. Let go of all you want to hang to and see how God provides for your son during this new season of his life. 

As I think about the weddings I have been part of I am reminded of how busy it all seems. Many times we wake up and the very moment remembers the long list of things we must do. We want to start our to-do lists immediately. 

We see the example throughout scripture of coming to Him in the morning. We recognize that all our strength and ability to get things done comes from you. 

O Lord, in the morning you hear my voice; in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch. (Psalm 5:3 ESV)

There is much to pray about though for the wedding and so we have put some prayers together to help you pray through that day. We hope that these prayers help you stay focused on Christ throughout the business and that through them you find peace and joy. 

Please comment below and share with us when the big day is so that we can join you in prayer for your son’s wedding.

By the breath of God ice is given, and the broad waters are frozen fast. He loads the thick cloud with moisture; the clouds scatter his lightning. They turn around and around by his guidance, to accomplish all that he commands them on the face of the habitable world. Whether for correction or for his land or for love, he causes it to happen.

Prayer For My Son And Daughter In Law

God, I pray for my son’s and daughter’s in-law marriage. As we get ready for the wedding love, hope, and anticipation of a great life fill the air. I pray that they experience this throughout their marriage. 

Father, you know that marriage is tough. Disappointments, pride, and sin taint what was once simple bliss. I pray that in those times they cling to you and your word for guidance. Help them not to be lured in by this world and the false hope it brings. Instead, help them to find true hope in their marriage, through you alone. 

God, I pray that my son would be a husband like you have called men to be in scripture. That he would love his wife well and lead her in a way that would help her grow to be more and more like Christ. 

God, I pray that my son loves his wife more than life. I pray he loves her beyond even what he could imagine. But I pray that he will never love her more than he loves you, God. Help him to love you with a never-ending, always seeking, joy-filled love. This is the greatest gift he can give his wife. 

I confidently pray these things because of who you are and the power you have to fulfill your will. In Christ’s name, Amen. prayers for son and daughter in law
