This prayer for your spouse asks God to fill each of you with love, faith, and trust.

It is important not only to love your spouse, but also to pray for your spouse, in good times and in bad.

Prayer is often said to be the glue to a marriage, keeping spouses together and united in their faith and love of God.

Here is a popular prayer of spouses for each other that can become a normal part of daily life, recognizing the importance of prayer in the success of any marriage.

Lord Jesus, grant that I and my spouse may have a true and understanding love for each other. Grant that we may both be filled with faith and trust. Give us the grace to live with each other in peace and harmony.

May we always bear with one another’s weaknesses and grow from each other’s strengths. Help us to forgive one another’s failings and grant us patience, kindness, cheerfulness and the spirit of placing the well-being of one another ahead of self.

May the love that brought us together grow and mature with each passing year. Bring us both ever closer to You through our love for each other. Let our love grow to perfection. Amen.
