PRAYER OF A HUSBAND AND WIFE
Keep us Lord from pettiness. Let us be thoughtful in word and deed.
Help us to put away presence and face each other in deep trust without fear or self-pity.
Let us be done with fault ﬁndings and be quick to discover the best in every situation.
Guard us from ill temper and hasty judgment.
Encourage us to take time for all things to grow calm, serene and gentle.
Help us to be swift with kind words.
Teach us never to ignore, never to hurt, never to take each other for granted.
Engrave charity and compassion on our hearts.
Oh! Mary, conceived without original sin, pray for us. Amen.
