The Prayer of William and Catherine.

God our Father,
        We thank you for our families;for the love that we share and for the joy of our marriage.
              In the busyness of each day keep our eyes fixed on what is real and important in life,
              and help us to be generous with our time and love and energy.
         Strengthened by our union,help us to serve and comfort those who suffer.
               We ask this in the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
I understand that this prayer was composed by them both.For the first time in any royal wedding that I have watched over the years, I felt that this was a Christian wedding,that they truly believed,and that the vows they made were hugely important to them.My prayer for them,is that they may be sustained by the love of Christ,
be blest with children,and serve their country well.

I totally agree and the sermon by the Bishop of London was spot on too! Her brother read the Bible passage beautifully. I only heard it on the radio so far which was a great way of taking in all the words spoken and the heavenly singing. It was all so encouraging for a proper Christian take on marriage. However, looking on the BBC website for clips there were none of the above - only all about who was wearing what, mainly. May God love them and help them to keep their vows!
