A MARRIAGE PRAYER

Presented by the Wisconsin Knights of Columbus

Lord, help us to remember when we first met and the strong love that grew between us. To work that love into practical things so that nothing can divide us. We ask for words both kind and loving and hearts always ready to ask for forgiveness as well as to forgive. Dear Lord, we put our marriage into Your hands. Amen.
