Prayer for our Marriage

Dear God,

You know our needs before we do. We do not ask for specific outcomes, only that you give us the guidance and strength to do Your will in all things, to accept those challenges that are part of our daily lives and to do our best to live lives of faith and trust.

You are the third partner in our marriage, enhancing our love for each other, strengthening us in times of trial, and supplying us with both anchor and wings, that we may remain steadfast and true while soaring far beyond where we could be alone.

Knowing our human frailty and imperfection, we sometimes make mistakes or misunderstand each other. Enlighten us with your wisdom and fill us with your mercy. As we strive to overcome those things that have broken our relationship, guide us to rediscover the love that brought us together, and help us to renew that love in mutual forgiveness.

We know that with your presence in our lives we are never really alone. When times of loneliness and worry do come, give us gentle reminders of that presence, that we may remember the many blessings with which you have graced our lives.

Amen.
