LONDON (Reuters Life!) - The Church of England issued a special prayer on Thursday ahead of the upcoming wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, asking worshippers to call on God to give them the strength to be faithful to each other.
“In your love deepen their love and strengthen their wills to keep the promises they will make, that they may continue in life-long faithfulness to each other,” the prayer from the Anglican church says.
The church, which has William’s grandmother Queen Elizabeth, as its supreme head, advises the prayer can be used in private prayer, in groups or within public worship.
It has already issued a prayer for schools and young children to use in the run-up to the wedding on April 29.
