Marriage Prayer

Catholic Prayer for Marriages

I can’t believe that as of today (Thursday) Michael and I have been married ten years. The time has just flown by! There have been a lot of ups and downs over the past ten years but I have always been thankful that God has put him in my life and called us to marriage.  From the moment I saw him I knew he was “the one” and I still know it. 🙂

In honor of our anniversary, I want to share this beautiful prayer that I found online (here and here).

“We thank you, O God, for the Love You have implanted in our hearts. May it always inspire us to be kind in our words, considerate of feeling, and concerned for each other’s needs and wishes. Help us to be understanding and forgiving of human weaknesses and failings. Increase our faith and trust in You and may Your Prudence guide our life and love. Bless our Marriage O God, with Peace and Happiness, and make our love fruitful for Your glory and our Joy both here and in eternity.” — Traditional Catholic prayer, author unknown

I pray  not only for our marriage but for yours, too. May your marriage be strong and blessed in every way!

  3. […] 5. Here’s another simple way to get closer to your spouse this Lent – pray together! Sign up at your local chapel for a holy hour together; read Scripture or pray the Rosary together after dinner. Make it a point to participate in the Paschal Triduum. If you’ve never prayed together before, this can be intimidating, Langr writes, because prayer is “an incredibly personal, vulnerable area of our lives.” She suggests starting out with a simple prayer such as this one: […]
