Dating couples prayer
Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for this life together, for the gift of our love, and the blessing of our marriage.
We give you praise and thanks for the joy you've poured into our hearts through this bond of love we share.
Praying with someone you are dating can be a powerful way of building spiritual intimacy.
Is your prayer life the same in public and private? But for many Christians it can be a struggle to keep a regular private prayer time.
Early on in a relationship this could make a couple feel like they have a deeper connection than they really do.
For the same reasons couples should avoid physical intimacy before the right time, they should avoid spiritual intimacy.
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.
