Couples Prayer for Each Other
Lord Jesus, grant that (name each other) may have a true understanding and
love for one another.
May we both be filled with faith and trust.
May we be blessed with the grace to live with each other in peace and
May we bear with one another’s weaknesses, and grow from each other’s
Bless us with forgiveness when we hurt the other,
Bless us with patience, kindness, cheerfulness
And the spirit of placing the well being of one another ahead of self.
Help us to see and appreciate the goodness in each other, and to never
forget to say “I love you.” Amen.
Blessing of Expectant Parents
On the First Weekend of Each Month, at our Lord's Day
Liturgies, we celebrate the Blessing of Expectant Parents.
This takes place
immediately after Mass. Simply gather near the front pews and our Pastor will
join you. Each couple is individually blessed and receives a small prayer card
and a blessed medallion of St Gerard who is the Patron Saint of Expectant
Parents. Couples are encouraged to use both in prayer.
