A prayer for the Royal couple and all made one in marriage

The Church of England has today posted a prayer on its website for
Prince William and Catherine Middleton and all couples preparing for
their wedding. It can be used in private prayer, in groups or within
public worship



The prayer joins one provided for schools and young children already
published at  http://churchofengland.org/prayer-worship/topical-prayers.aspx#royalweddingschools.


The new prayer


God of all grace,
friend and companion,
look in favour on William and Catherine
and all who are made one in marriage.
In your love deepen their love
and strengthen their wills

to keep the promises they will make,
that they may continue
in life-long faithfulness to each other;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.
