These marriage prayers are wonderful no matter what season of marriage you are in.
I do my best to make it a habit to pray often for my marriage. I know that it is something I should do daily and that is my goal. While I may not always reach that goal I absolutely try my best. I want our marriage to stand the test of time. When I said “till death do us part” I really did mean it.
