Anniversary Prayer To Grow Love And Unity
Heavenly Father, thank You that You have brought us together as man and wife, and thank You that we are celebrating yet another wedding anniversary, for which we praise and magnify Your holy name.
Thank You for the guidance that we have received through Your Word, and Lord, we pray that day by day You would develop in both our hearts an increasing desire to put on love, knowing that this is the perfect bond of unity and peace, when founded on the Lord Jesus Christ, our Rock and Foundation. May we both grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ as together we walk in spirit and truth, and may our life become a shining example, where Christ remains the centre and circumference of our marriage.
Give us wisdom we pray, as we face the forthcoming year, and grant us to grow in love and unity one with one another and with You, so that we may be a demonstration of Your grace and mercy towards us. May our love for You and our faith in You bring glory to Your name. In Jesus’ name we pray,
Church Anniversary Prayer
Heavenly Father, thank You that we are celebrating this church anniversary. We thank You that we are all One in Christ, and we pray that as members of Your body, Your Holy Spirit would knit us together in the bonds of unity and love.
Lord, You have promised that You are the One that would build Your Church and we ask that You would continue to equip each of us, both individually and corporately with the talents and gifts that may be used to Your praise and glory for the edification of the rest of the saints of God.
Protect us from the wiles of the enemy who seeks to destroy and cause divisions among Your body. Help us to be sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable and gentle one towards each other. Let us not be motivated by selfishness but in humility may we seek to regard the needs and necessities of others before our own.
Give wisdom to the elders and deacons and give wisdom to those that teach and a teachable spirit to those that listen. And may the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of the Father and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all this day and for ever. In Jesus’ name we pray,
