Let’s pray for them as they prepare for their wedding day and their future together as husband and wife.
Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. Psalm 91:1-2 NLT
Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer; answer me, for I need your help. Protect me, for I am devoted to you. Save me, for I serve you and trust you. You are my God. Be merciful to me, O Lord, for I am calling on you constantly. Give me happiness, O Lord, for I give myself to you. Psalm 86:1-4 NLT
Heavenly Father we thank you for the happiness that comes from an engagement – the initial promise of one to another. As they start this new phase of their relationship and time together, we pray for them individually.
Thank you for HRH Eugenie- her passion for life, people and her family. For the joy she brings to the people she meets and works with we pray you’d increase her joy through this moment in her life. We pray that in the intervening months before their wedding day, that you’d surround her with close confidants with whom she can share her struggles, dress secrets and anticipate the future. We ask Lord, for the media to be respectful of her & her family at this time.
Thank you for Jack, a man who you know so well. Thank you for the welcome that he has received into the York family. As he begins a new journey of being more in the public eye, God, facilitate advisors to help this process. If the media bring up unfavourable stories, give him a place of refuge and a safety among close family and friends.
Thank you for the parents of HRH Eugenie, Prince Andrew and Sarah. As they advise, guide, watch & assist in the many decisions that are made we pray for good communication between them as a couple. We ask Lord, that this would bring them closer together than ever before. Anything that is meant for evil against this couple will be turned into a great opportunity to give you thanks and praise.
Thank you for the parents of Jack and all they mean to him. As they enter the fringes of the Royal family, grace them Lord with your wisdom, discernment and a sense of peace. As they call on you for insight in those moments that they just don’t know what to do or where to turn, hear their prayers Lord, and answer their pleas for help.
Over the decisions that have to be made in preparation for the wedding day, bring the right people together. May it be a day where happiness is so obvious in the eyes and hearts of both Jack & Eugenie and their families. As they consider saying their marriage vows in front of family, friends and You, O God, may they know the seriousness of what they promise to each other. Support, encourage & strengthen them as the media watch this private moment which is likely to become international news.
Let your love and grace be upon them, now and in the days ahead.
In Jesus’ name,
