Marriage Proclamation

 Sunday 11th February 2018 

World Marriage Day Proclamation 


Congregation Standing: The Pastor or a couple will lead, and the congregation will repeat : 

  1. We decree and declare that God has designed marriage as a Covenant and a lifelong union of one man and one woman as husband and wife in Christ and is meant to signify the covenant between Christ and His bride the church (Malachi 2:14,5; Ephesians 5:24). 
  2. We decree and declare that God created Adam and Eve, the first human beings, in God’s own image, equal before God as persons, and distinct as male and female (Genesis 1:26,27). 
  3. We decree and declare that God ordained marriages should happen between one man and one woman who belong to the family of Jesus (2 Corinthians 6:14- 16) and it is God who joins them together as one (Matthew 19 : 6).
  4. We decree and declare that marriage is under bondage due to sin and by the work of Jesus on the cross, marriage has been redeemed and restored to the original design of God (Colossians 2:14,15). 
  5. We decree and declare that the work of Christ on the cross cleanses the marriage from all the lust, defilement, uncleanness, immorality, unworthiness and sanctifies and justifies it (1 Corinthians 6:9-11). 
  6.  We decree and declare that marriage should be Sanctified and made holy and blameless just as Christ has sanctified the church (Ephesians 5:25-27; I Thessalonians 4:3-8 ). 
  7.  We decree and declare that marriage is a Sanctuary, the dwelling place of God (Malachi 2:11). 
  8.  We decree and declare that true covenant love is not earthly but comes by the love of God shed in our hearts by the Holy Spirit and with this love husband and wife love each other (Romans 5:5).
  9. We decree and declare that the Holy Spirit in our marriage will teach us, guide us, counsel us and lead us into all the ways of the Lord. (John 16:13; 1 John 2:27)
  10.  We decree and declare that each marriage has a calling and a purpose in God’s divine plan. (Genesis 2:18)                                                                                            The Pastor will pray after this, blessing the marriages of the congregation & also will pray for young people to make right choices in their marriage and honor God & the body of Christ .
