Couples often spend countless hours on wedding planning but only a few hours preparing for their marriage. When they are engaged or seriously dating is a great time for the Church to embrace and ready them for what’s to come. Take some time to pray for the seriously dating or engaged couples in your church. Is there one or more you could invite to your house for dinner? Your ministry and prayers for them might be one of the most powerful ways God will work to prepare them for marriage.
