A Prayer for a Married Couple

O God, our Heavenly Father, protect and bless us. Deepen and strengthen our love for each other day by day. Grant that by Thy mercy neither of us ever say one unkind word to the other.

Forgive and correct our faults, and make us constantly to forgive one another should one of us unconsciously hurt the other. Make us and keep us sound and well in body, alert in mind, tender in heart, devout in spirit. O Lord, grant us each to rise to the other's best. Then we pray Thee add to our common life such virtues as only Thou canst give.

And so, O Father, consecrate our life and our love completely to Thy worship, and to the service of all about us, especially those whom Thou has appointed us to serve, that we may always stand before Thee in happiness and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

This beautiful prayer was written by Bishop Slattery, soon after his marriage, to be used each day in their family devotions at home in Boston, Massachusetts.

Monk and Anglican....thanks for the wonderful prayer and the "congrats". Hard to believe we've been married this long (and can now vote...LOL...oh Streak...you still crack me up.)

We met 5 years before we married and became fast friends. We met for coffee every Friday for many years. We still regularly drink coffee together. Somethings never change and I'm grateful for that.

Here's to you Streak...Love of my Life!
