Prayer of Spouses for One Another

Lord Jesus Christ, help us to love each other as You love your Immaculate Bride, the Church. Bestow on us Christian forebearance and patience in bearing each other's shortcomings. Let no misunderstandings disturb that harmony which is the foundation of mutual help in the many and various hardships of life.
Inspire us to lead truly Christian lives and cooperate with the sacramental grace given us on our wedding day. Give us the grace to live together in peace and happiness, slow to speak harshly and quick to forgive each other.
Enable us to rear our children in your love, assist our neighbor after your example, shoulder our rightful civic and religious burdens in union with You, and bear witness to You before our community. Amen.

Lord Jesus, grant that I and my spouse may have a true and understanding love for each other. Grant that we may both be filled with faith and trust. Give us the grace to live with each other in peace and harmony. May we always bear with one another's weaknesses and grow from each other's strengths. Help us to forgive one another's failings and grant us patience, kindness, cheerfulness, and the spirit of placing the well-being of one another ahead of self.

May the love that brought us together grow and mature with each passing year. Bring us both ever closer to You through our love for each other. Let our love grow to perfection. Amen.

Prayer of Spouses on a Wedding Anniversary

Heavenly Father, we thank You from the bottom of our hearts for your continued blessings on our union that have enabled us to reach another anniversary. We thank You for letting our love deepen and for helping us in time of trial. We know that without your assistance we would never have remained so close as we are.

We ask You to continue to watch over us, over our homes and families. Help us to renew our vows of love and loyalty and to strive to remain united with You, steadfast in our faith and in your service. Amen.

Prayer for a Married Couple

O God, unite our hearts in the never-ending bond of pure love. May our children bring You happiness and may Your generous love for them be returned to You, many times over. May the peace of Christ live always in our hearts and in our home. May we continue to have true friends who stand by us both in joy and in sorrow. May we be ready and willing to help and comfort all who come to us in need, and may the blessings promised to the compassionate someday be ours. May we find happiness and satisfaction in our occupations. May daily problems never cause us undue anxiety, nor the desire for earthly comforts dominate our lives. May our hearts' first desire always be the hundredfold You promised to Your faithful people. May You bless us with many more happy years together and may You one day welcome us together into Your eternal kingdom. Amen.
