These saints are powerful intercessors when you need God the most.

Troubled marriages

Five hundred years before Henry VIII, there was a king of England who strove to follow the laws of the Catholic Church and is now known as St. Edward the Confessor. Edward eventually married Edith, the daughter of Godwine, the Earl of Essex and the most powerful of the English earls at the time. Many historians believe Edith was a tough woman and at times bad-tempered. Edward is often invoked by those who have difficult marriages or are separated.

Most glorious St. Edward,
you showed your devotion to God
with patience, gentleness and generosity. 
Like you, may I serve to strengthen the Kingdom of God
through patient prayer and charity.
Speak on my behalf for my petition which seems so impossible from my position.
(Here mention your request ).
Confident in your intercession, I place this cause in your hands.
Amen.
