LITANY FOR MARRIAGE PRAYER CARD
Written by: Aaron and Marie Loesel, with collaboration of a few devout couples.
In Tobit 8:7, Tobit and his wife, Sarah prayer together, “Send down Your mercy and grant that we may grow old together.”
In Ephesians, St. Paul says to wives and husbands, “Be subordinate to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives should be subordinate to their husbands as to the Lord…Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ loved the church and handed himself over for her to sanctify her.”
And the great St. John Paul II said, “Marriage is an act of will that signifies and involves a mutual gift, which unites the spouses and binds them to their eventual souls.”
Marriage is a beautiful covenant that unites a man and woman as a gift to one another. A gift to grow together and carry one another through all seasons of life. We wrote this litany together to invite the Holy Spirit to transform both our individual hearts and our marriage. This vocation is hard, sanctifying work. One that we cannot do without the loving guidance from God.
We pray that this litany transforms your marriages and unites you in a bond full of gratitude for one another and the blessings of this beautiful covenant. May you always encourage one another, pray for and with one another, and keep Christ at the center of your marriage. Holy Family, pray for us!
This prayer card is the perfect size to keep in your journal or Bible so it is always near. Grab one to say with your spouse or buy a bundle to add to wedding gifts!
