After praying together alone, many couples will feel a deeper connection to each other.
Early on in a relationship this could make a couple feel like they have a deeper connection than they really do.
I firmly believe that it’s because we set the foundation of our friendship on Christ.
Praying together is an unbelievable way to strengthen a friendship and lead each other closer to Christ. My best friend and I have known each other for over 15 years.
And that’s because he is utterly, relentlessly committed to giving his precious sons and daughters what’s best for us, it’s best for us. No matter how good the gift seems to be in the moment, or how much we want it, or how long we have waited, God will not abandon the greater good he has promised us (2 Corinthians 12:7–10).
But we may be tempted to abandon him, to give up on his plan for us, or at least turn our backs for a little bit in disappointment.
"Almighty God, hear this prayer." Dear Lord, I offer you this prayer, to help me with my current relationship situation. Dear Lord, you know what path I am on right now and that I am in agony. You have instituted marriage since You found that it is not good for man to be alone.
Please take away all the pain and hurt in my heart. I deeply believe that You have given me this person to love and to hold for the rest of my days.
Over many years, I learned that God does not guarantee temporary joys for his children like physical health, marriage, success at work, or children.
Q: I’ve read that it’s emotionally unchaste to pray with your significant other if you’re not married because prayer is an intensely intimate experience between you and God.
I’ve prayed the liturgy of the hours, chaplets of divine mercy, and rosaries with close friends daily, and we’ve discovered just how crucial that prayer has been to strengthening our friendship.
Fill our hearts with love for each other, and may you make each one of us realize each other's worth. You are the King of Peace and I know You are able to change any sad situation in my life.
Please touch the heart of my partner,fill it with much love for me. Father, I know it is Your will that we should lead a loving and peaceful life with one another.
