Lord, we thank you for all of the 50 years that we have had peaceful and blessed married life together. Today (25.10.2017), as we celebrate our Golden Jubilee, our prayer is that you will continue to bless us.
Keep us, 0 Lord, from pettiness. Let us be thoughtful in word and deed. Help us to put away pretense, and face each other in deep trust without fear or self-pity. Help us to guard against faultfinding, and be quick to discover the best in each other and in every situation.
Guard us from ill temper and hasty judgment; encourage us to take time for all things, to grow calm, serene and gentle. Help us to be generous with kind words and compliments. Teach us never to ignore, never to hurt, and never to take each other for granted. Engrave charity and compassion on our hearts.
Let our testimony of love and forgiveness be a help to other couples as they start on their own journeys into married life. Lord, we pray that You will honor our commitment to each other and to You by granting us many more years of happiness together.
Please, pray for us.
