50th Wedding Anniversary Prayers

The journey that begins with signing the dotted lines as two people say “I do” to each other is a great one. It is God’s own established institution. It is a journey of happiness, sadness, tolerance, fights, forgiveness, endurance, etc. The interesting part of it all is that it is till death separates them. The journey is not always easy as many people portray it, and it is not as difficult as some put it.

For a couple to stand together with all of these for 50 years, is not a small achievement. That should be celebrated, and it should serve as an example that marriage works. Our world is filled with so many divorce cases that are not even up to 10 years of marriage. Such an anniversary should be a celebration as well as a teaching platform. Many young marriages will have a lot to learn from this. It is like someone celebrating 50 years of age. It is just that this must have experienced a lot of hits from the devil because of the special responsibility God confers on marriage.

So, on a 50th wedding anniversary, the first kind of prayer to expect which is very important is the prayer of thanksgiving. There must be thanksgiving because a journey of 50 years can not be overlooked. It must have been God. To live with someone, and be committed for 50 years calls for thanksgiving unto the one who must have helped with graces to stay put in lack, affluence, disappointment, joy, etc. 50 years is a combination of all of these and more. Both the couples and the people in attendance must lift up their appreciation to God for the journey so far.

Now is time to pray for the couple. To start with, be reminded that the said couples are no longer young people. If they got married in their twenties, it means that they will be in their seventies. If they git married in their thirties, they would be in their eighties. This means they would be between 70 and 80 years of age. That’s old age already. This understanding will shape the kind of prayer you will pray for them. So, our prayer for them would be centered around that age and the achievement of staying together in marriage for that long. Now, let’s raise two prayer points!

The first prayer is that God would use them to raise great homes. This is the best way they can contribute positively to the kingdom of God. In Joel 2:28, the Bible says old men shall dream dreams. This means it is not finished for them because they are old or that their strength is little. In that verse, the dream being referred to is a prophetic dream. This is a tool for them to mentor and disciple young people. This is why we need to pray that God will use them to model what He wants in young marriages.

So, the prayer will be something like, “Lord, empower them to grow new couples into what you want a home to be.” Let there be great grace to enhance them be a voice to further the frontiers of Christian home building in Jesus’ name. Let them keep bearing fruit for the kingdom of God even in this their old age. Great things they have not been able to achieve for you, let them receive strength to help homes and couples to stay together. Let grace be made available beyond their imagination. After all Moses started his ministry at age 50, their home can still do great things for the kingdom of God.

Another important prayer to pray for these couple celebrating 50th wedding anniversary will be targeted at all they have worked for and owned in the last 50 years as a couple. The prayer will focus on them seeing those things grow, multiply, and making positive impact. This is an important aspect of life that every purpose driving person will pray to see in their life. It is a way of making them have a soft landing with God and that their lives have impacted the world positively in their own sphere. The key thing here is positive impact in the world.

So, the prayer will be something like, “Your children both biological and spiritual will not die before you in Jesus name.” They will outlive you and be to the glory of God in all ramification of life in Jesus name. This prayer point is very essential for parents. It is their joy to see their seed flourish. And every project that you have raised will continue to flourish beyond your imagination in Jesus name. Everything you have built with your hands will not die before your very eye in Jesus name. The works of your hand will be enclosed with grace for growth and continuity in Jesus name.

One important prayer that must not be missing for people of this age group is prayer on health. Normally by this time they would be experiencing decline in health. Some may even have health condition due to old age. It is imperative to pray for them in this line of thought that they would be strong. It is the wish of the Holy Spirit that we continue to flourish as recorded in 3 John 1:2, we pray that you remain strong in health even as your soul prospers. Let there be divine strength such that men like Moses and Caleb enjoyed in his days in Jesus name.

And if there are special health conditions, they can be prayed for too. God still heals irrespective of age. After all, healing is bread of the children according to the scriptures. Irrespective of their age, they are children in the kingdom of God. At least, they are children to God. We can pray for divine healing for them. Prayers can be like, “Lord, visit them with divine healing in Jesus name” Let every organ and system that needs healing be touched for complete healing in Jesus’ name.
