A Prayer for Marriages


Eternal God,

Who created woman that man might not be alone,

Whose blesses marriage by adding one and one to make one,

Who would not have us unequally yoked,

So knit together the hearts and souls of Christian spouses

That together they would

          Walk together as one

          Serve You together as one

          Love You together as one.


Eternal Trinity,

You are Three Persons in one Being.

In this same way, let diversity in unity

Be reflected in marriages.


Let the love of the Father for mankind

be reflected in our love for children.


Let the love of Christ for the Church

be reflected in the love of man for wife.
