7 Helpful Prayers For A Wedding Shower

Last Updated on October 19, 2023 by Emma

Wedding showers are a great time to celebrate the upcoming commitment that two people will make to one another. They are usually filled with familiar faces, cakes, and presents. Sometimes even a game or two. 


Freely you have received; freely give. (Matthew 10:08 NKJV)

You have been asked to pray during this event and you may be feeling overwhelmed. Yes, you have a relationship with God and pray all day long but to pray infant of a crowd is different.

We know you want to take this seriously and honor the bride and groom through your prayer. But you may also recognize that this is an opportunity to glorify and speak truth on this beautiful occasion. 

We hope one of these prayers will be perfect for your occasion. Please comment below and let us know if we can be praying for you as you prepare and pray for the Wedding Shower.

Closing Thoughts

Weddings, showers, and all the preparations for two people coming together as one is an exciting time. Praying through each one of these steps is important. It’s important not because God doesn’t know what is going on, He does, but because it reminds us who is in control. 

We are so blessed as Christians that we know that God is in control. He is in control even of the wedding showers we will participate in. So we love praying to God because we are reminded of this truth and we get to talk to our God who loves us. 

We care about the details of your life and pray with you through them. We would love to know when your wedding shower is so we can be praying with you. We invite you to also share your comments and prayer requests down below, at the end of this article.
