Thank You for the gift of a new day of marriage.
A new chance to love better;
To serve better;
To embrace my vocation.
I ask you, Lord, to help me embrace my cross,
As You embraced Yours,
Out of love.
I pray, Lord, that You will show my spouse Your love,
That he will come to know You, love You and follow You,
Not for my sake,
But for his.
I am sorry, Lord, for when I have failed to reflect Your love,
Your compassion, Your mercy and Your patience.
I beg You, Lord, to use me, Your humble servant,
To shine Your light in my marriage today.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
