AS WE BECOME ONE...

A Bride's Prayer
O Father, my heart is filled with a happiness so wonderful. I am almost afraid  this is my Wedding Day. I pray Thee that the beautiful joy of this morning may never grow dim with the tears of regret for the step I am about to take.Rather may its memories become more sweet and tender with each passing anniversary.

Thou hast sent me one who seems all worthy of my deepest regard. Grand unto me the power to keep him ever true and loving as now.May I prove indeed a helpmate,a sweetheart, a friend, a steadfast guiding star among all the temptations that beset this impulsive heart of mine.
Give me the skill to make home the best loved place of all. Help me to make its light gleam brighter than any glow that would dim its radiance. Let me, I pray Thee, meet the little misunderstandings and cares of life more bravely.
Be with me as I start my mission of womanhood and stay Thou my path from failure all the way.Walk with us even unto the end of our journey. O Father, bless my Wedding Day, hallow my Marriage Night, sanctify my Motherhood if Thou sees it fit to grant me that privilege. And when all my youthful charms are gone, and cares and lessons have left their traces, let physical fascination give way to the greatest charm of companionship.
And so may we walk hand in hand down the highway of the valley of the shadow which we hope to lighten with the sunshine of good and happy lives.

O Father, this is my prayer. Hear me, I beseech Thee.
Amen.

Hi Ria,

I have been a silent reader of your blog since many months.
After reading the "Prayer of a Bride", I was moved and it struck a chord with me. I had to leave my sincere wishes for the both of you.

Wish the both of you a lifetime full of love and companionship!!!
