Prayer for my spouse

Susan and Jason Dance


“With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” Ephesians 4:2-3

Another prayer for our times.


Lord Jesus Christ my Savior, I offer this prayer for my spouse, (Name).  May (name)’s heart always be open to your Holy Spirit so that he/she be made holy by you Lord. Help me Lord to always uplift (name).  Help me to see his/her gifts, the gifts you yourself bestowed upon him/her.

Let me not get stuck in anger, bitterness or sorrow towards (name). 

May all the Saints in heaven pray for us.

Let not the devil enter our household.  

Send angels of sufficient rank, number, power and authority to our home to surround it and prevent any evil from entering our home or our hearts.  

Where there is unforgiveness heal us and show us how to extend mercy towards one another as you extended mercy towards us from the cross.

Where I see an unmovable mountain in our relationship, pick it up and move it as the miracle worker you are.

Guard our purity, let nothing defile our hearts, minds or bodies which are made for covenant with one another as a free gift.  Keep our hearts always pure for one another.

Protect always our marriage, let there be no division among us.

May we both seek to know Your Will, and choose it with a resounding YES, in the same way the Blessed Virgin Mary and Saint Joseph said yes, bringing you into their hearts and home.

May we together be a living sanctuary of your love that brings forth the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.

I ask this in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

    Funny story. When I first saw this particular article, at first glance I thought the title was “PRAY FOR MY SPOUSE,” not “PRAYER FOR MY SPOUSE.” So, I thought, “Oh dear, Sue’s husband needs prayers. Maybe he fell off the roof . . . or hit his thumb with a hammer . . . or hit his knee with a tire iron . . . I better say a prayer for him,” which I did and then promptly forgot about the article. Later, I came back, and saw the article is actually a beautiful pray for spouses. So, naturally, I said it for my wife. Though, all in all, your husband benefited from the extra prayers!
