Following the pattern
of the prayer our Lord taught us, we
can pray for a particular person or
situation using and applying each of
the petitions in turn. The whole
prayer can be focused and brought to
bear, for example, on a particular
meeting, or on a particular person
in physical or spiritual need or on
particular members of a family. We
wish them well, so would it not be
good to continue to pray for William
and Kate as they begin a family:
‘Father we place into
your hands William and Kate and
Thank you that you
holy name was held high, hallowed on
their wedding day in all that
was said and done in the
Cause your name be
honoured, too, in their relationship
with one another as they build
their family home together.
May your kingdom
come, may they, together, submit to
your holy rule and live in a way
that pleases you.
Cause your will be
done in each decision of the months
and years that lie ahead. May there
be a touch of heaven about this
Give them day by day
godly wisdom, peace and safety that
they may live without anxiety before
Lord, have mercy on
them and grant them each a forgiving
spirit towards one another as they
prepare for, and adjust to, the
arrival of a baby.
Grant them grace to
withstand the particular temptations
that come with wealth and position,
and from would-be suitors who would
break the marriage.
Finally, Father, at
work and in the family home we ask
you to protect them from every kind
of evil; evil from within and evil
from without, and from every
onslaught of the evil one.
Cause your holy name
be held high in this marriage,
Sovereign Lord, King of Kings.’
