A Wife’s Prayer

Print Friendly

This is a beautiful prayer for your spouse. Though it’s a wife’s prayer for her husband, it can be prayed by the husband as well.

Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Thou didst institute marriage in the earthly Paradise and in the New Law elevate it to the dignity of a Sacrament, attaching to it many graces. Grant to my husband and me the grace to live holy lives in so sacred a state and, by the practice of Christian virtues, to act always as is becoming a Christian couple. As thy minister joined our hands at the holy altar, so may we journey through life with one heart and one souls tasting its pleasures with moderation, enduring its sorrows with resignation and, at all times, mutually assisting and consoling each other. May Thy true and holy fear strengthen us to restrain the low desires of the flesh, and to serve Thee uprightly with pure heart and eyes and lips, in mutual esteem and forbearance! Grant that the children born of our union may be pure of heart and well-disposed in mind, and that they may gladly walk in the way of Thy Commandments. Teach us to be faithful images of the Holy Family of Nazareth, of the blessed foster-father Joseph, of the most devout Mother Mary, the most blessed Mother of the Child Jesus, that we may be made worthy to live under their protection, to die in their favor, and to be forever blessed in their society. Amen.

Prayer to the Holy Spirit before Confession

Print Friendly

Here is a prayer to the Holy Spirit before receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation or Penance. Let us ask God to give us the strength to always make a good confession.

Come, Holy Spirit, into my soul. Enlighten my mind that I may know the sins I ought to confess, and grant me the grace to confess them fully, humbly, and with a contrite heart. Help me to firmly resolve not to commit them again.

O Blessed Virgin, Mother of my Redeemer, mirror of innocence and sanctity and refuge of penitent sinners, intercede for me that I may obtain the grace to make a good confession.

All you blessed Angels and Saints of God, pray for me, a sinner, that I may repent from my sinful ways and that I may be forever united with you. Amen.

Here is a prayer to be recited before a crucifix. This prayer is attributed to St. Francis of Assisi, the founder of the Franciscans.

Most High, glorious God, enlighten the darkness of my heart.
Lord, instill in me,
a faith that is unerring,
a hope that is certain,
a love that is perfect,
a sensitivity and a knowledge
that I may accomplish Your holy and true command.
Amen.
