Prayer is one of the primary aspects that hold a marriage and family together. Many traditions surround Catholic prayer. Asking for God’s blessing is just one of the ways you can celebrate your relationship. Here is a look at some of the best Catholic prayers for married couples.
Almighty God, Your Word said that it is not good that man should be alone for You saw the longing that Adam had for a companion. Thank You for blessing us with the gift of marriage, I am thankful for my partner and I pray that You continue to guide him/her as we walk the righteous path as individuals and as a corporate body in marriage. Lord, I pray over this marriage and declare that Your hand remains upon us, Amen.
God of Creation, in the beginning, You told Adam and Eve to be fruitful and to multiply and to have dominion over the animals here on earth. Father, I pray that in our marriage we continue to be fruitful and multiply. Let us do this physically with children who are blessings that come from You. Let us also do this spiritually by birthing ministries that You have called us to birth and by making disciples that You have selected, Amen.
Genesis 1:26-28 & 31
Oh Majesty, my God, I pray to You over my marriage. Let love and faithfulness never leave me. I will bind them around my neck and write them on the tablet of my heart. I pray that the love and faithfulness that lives within me, will be evident in my behavior towards my partner, and vice versa. Then, we will win favor and a good name in the sight of You, Amen.
All-loving Father, gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. I pray that the words that we speak over our marriage are sweet, let the words that we speak to one another and about one another be done out of love. I pray against any negative words or thoughts regarding our marriage so that the enemy cannot use anything to build a case against us, Amen.
Jehovah Shalom, You are my prince of peace, in You I trust. I thank You for this marriage, thank You for my partner’s life! Thank You for this divine union for two are better than one, if either one of us falls, the other will lift up his/her companion. I pray that we continually strive to lift one another up before we fall, while we fall and even after we have fallen, Amen.
Holy One, above all, I pray that we clothe ourselves with love. If we offend one another or stir up one another to anger, let our response always be clothed in love. Let love direct our actions in marriage, for it is love that has brought us together into marriage. I pray against anything that attempts to break the bond of love that we have for one another. Let love be the center of this marriage, let You Lord be the center of this marriage, Amen.
Be high and lifted up, my Yahweh! Be high and lifted up in our marriage! Father, we choose to set our hearts on Your kingdom first, and on Your saving justice, and all these other things will be given to us as well. Lord, we will not worry about tomorrow: tomorrow will take care of itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Let us concern ourselves with the heavenly things so that our marriage can be founded upon You, Amen.
Alpha and Omega, the bible states that to find a wife is to find happiness, a favor granted by You. I thank You for the happiness that You have allowed me to receive. I pray that I (the husband) love my wife as myself and that I (the wife) respect my husband. Lord, I pray that we continue to consider each other’s mind, heart and soul in this marriage so that we can make one another happy, Amen.
Proverbs 18:22 & Ephesians 5:33
Dear Lord, I know that love is always patient and kind; love is never jealous; love is not boastful or conceited, it is never rude and never seeks its own advantage, it does not take offense or store up grievances. Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing but finds its joy in the truth. It is always ready to make allowances, to trust, to hope and to endure whatever comes. Fill our hearts and this marriage with love, Amen.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Eternal God, I thank You for this marriage, I know that by Your grace and Your protection we will endure this Godly marriage. The bible declares that deep waters cannot quench love, nor rivers sweep it away. True love withstands trials, true love fights and does not give up. Give us the strength to remain loyal when this marriage gets difficult. Strengthen our bond so that as the challenges get more difficult, our marriage is reinforced; not weakened, Amen.
Holy Father, I place this marriage in Your hands because it belongs to You. I pray that with all humility and gentleness, with patience, we bear one another in love like You have called us to do. I pray that we remain eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Let us seek to keep the peace within our marriage while the enemy uses things to stir up trouble, let us put aside our impulsive emotions so that we can create lasting joy, Amen.
