8.9.13 arrow prayer: Lord, on this day we give thanks that You have brought us to this time of celebration for we would not have made it 27 years together without Your grace and mercy and constant loving kindness. Through sad times and sick times, through happy times and well times, through arguing times and peaceful times, through struggles and through wedded bliss times, through times with 3 children and times as empty nesters, through financial distress and through financial steadiness, through all times, You have sustained us. You have delivered us from the bad times and blessed us with happy times. You have enabled us to forgive one another because You first forgave us. We ask that trusting in Your grace You preserve us in faith in You and in each other continuing our wedded journey together. Amen.
