Prayer (Love & Marriage)

Lord, Friend, Sustainer and Comforter, thank you for the love you give every waking hour of the day. Thank you for tearing down society created walls that were constructed to marginalize and disenfranchise groups of your people. Thank you for sending each of us someone who like you, loves us without conditions; someone we have learned to love, respect and intend on growing old with. Lord, Friend, Sustainer and Comforter, thank you for how you unhardened the hearts of those who sit in high places as you guide them to support love and legal marriage of same-gender- loving people, who are parents, grandparents, doctors, lawyers, and yes regular people. I thank you in advance for interceding and guiding them to do what is just and right. Amen
