8 Prayers For Wedding Reception

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8.

A wedding is a spiritual union in the eyes of God. It is a day when two people decide to spend the rest of their lives together. They invite everyone that’s important to them to come and witness this union and also help them celebrate their love. While we celebrate we must not forget the spiritual implications of what happened that day.

Love is the strongest emotion one human being can express towards another. When love reigns in the heart the fruits are beautiful and calming. When we love each other we don’t hurt each other, we are patient with one another and we respect each other.

During the celebration of this spiritual union, we must remember the union we share with God. God’s love for us is the perfect example for us to follow when we love each other. He is forever loving, caring, protective, and giving. We must do the same.

While we celebrate people’s love we should look at our own lives and examine ourselves and our relationships to see if we do what God expects from us. There are questions we should ask ourselves about our own marriages and relationships during these celebrations;

Are we selfless? Do we listen? Do we love unconditionally? Do we protect? Are we there for them no matter what? We must truthfully answer these questions inside us. We should search our hearts and look back to the day we also made those vows and see whether we are following and honoring them or not.

If we are, we must pray for God’s strength and guidance to be able to continue doing the same. If we have deviated from our vows then we must ask God to fill our hearts with humility and patience. We must pray for forgiveness and be prepared to stop the wrong we are doing and turn around to do the right thing.

Closing prayer for wedding reception

Wedding receptions are celebrations of the lifelong journeys people decide to embark on together. It is a chance for us to share in their joy and also give them our blessings for the future. They should also remind us of our lifelong journeys with God and our partners.

We must not live for ourselves but lay down our lives for other people. When you place the lives of your partners above yours you are exhibiting divine love and you please God at the same time.

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us.
