Our lives belong to you. Help us to trust you completely as obedient children.
If there is anything standing in the way of our complete commitment, we ask you to reveal it to us so that we can serve you with all that we have and all that we are.
We admit that we have ignored your instructions for marriage as you intended it. We have made marriage more about our personal wishes than your perfect will. Again, since we belong to you, help us to serve you, whether married or single, with contentment and with willing hearts.
In the end we see that eternal life is nothing more, nothing less and nothing other than life given to us as a gift from you and to be lived completely for you. Make us people whose lives reveal that to the world.
