A Prayer for My Marriage

As much as I would like to stubbornly hold on to the belief that I myself am capable of keeping my marriage together and happy in the decades to come; I humbly accept that this is not possible.

There are many reasons for failure – in fact, too many to list here. And I’m sure those of us married couples would agree that challenges await us on a daily basis; continually shaping and testing the structure of our now intricately shared lives.

I have complete blind faith in my husband, myself, and our marriage. But I also guard the knowledge of our shared weaknesses, past failures, and lack of experience that we bring with us through this long journey.

For this, I strive to live a life of supplication and humility. I am a strong, capable and honoured wife to my husband – but I will always need guidance, sound advice and trust to fulfill this unequivocal role in our marriage.

This is my prayer — for my husband and OUR shared purpose through marriage:

Our wonderful God and Father; you are first in our marriage – our core and foundation.

Guard our hearts – we are of one body in one lifetime.

Unite us on all fronts – who then could be against us?

Ignite our shared passions and purpose – with renewed spirits and health.

Help us to listen more than speak – may we keep a strong intuitive link.

May we fully live every given moment together – the real world may pass us by.

Surround us with great people who bless our marriage – and bless them tenfold.

May we be a new generation of marriage – we are tomorrow’s statistic.

Amen

        Lovely..
        I’m not married yet altho this is my desire…to be a good wife one day soon. I pray daily for my partner, and also try to find solutions to every problem we have, my focus is on having a healthy relationhip. Although someone said to me it can be challenging when one of you has the “tools” in knowing how to work towards a healthy relationship, and the other doesn’t…this is tru…but nothing that is beyond prayer. :)

          I completely agree. Even if you both have the right “tools”; without a core relationship with God, there is no true strength without humility. I pray your relationship grows and is blessed with each passing day :)
