To have forgiving hearts and to always mend our relationship whenever we feel like giving up.
Prayer to maintain our marriage vows
Lord, we want to thank you for the gift of our lives. We pray that you will grant us good health at all times. Help us to maintain our marriage vows to one another and most especially to you. During our marriage we promised to love, honor, cherish each other, in bad times and good times, when sick and when healthy, we promised to always be there for one another. Please help us to stick to them.
Help us to be united and not allow anything or anyone to come between us. Give us a strong bond of unity just like You are united in the Holy Trinity. Help us to be one spirit and mind and set aside our pride and selfishness so that we can serve each other and You. Show us where we need to improve in order to make our marriage stronger.
We come against the spirit of division and confusion, that attacks from the evil one will not stand in our marriage. We pray that we will not have conflicts that would divide us. Help us to put each other’s happiness ahead of our own so that we won’t engage in bad vices that would upset our partner. Help us to always seek refuge in you whenever we experience any problem in our new journey. Help us not to grow bored of one another but to always be more intimate. May we live many years together in joy and peace.
Lord Jesus, let us not take these vows for granted, but instead fulfill them. We pray that Your Holy Mother, Mary, present throughout Your life, may be present in our marriage.
