World Day of Marriage (February 11, 2018)

 “A Family that prays together, stays together.”  “FAMILY – Father And Mother, I Love You!”

Our relationship with God and each other is the foundation of the family.  Having a strong marriage bond will strengthen the family.  Strengthen your family!  Strengthen your marriage with God.

The Knights of Columbus would like to help strengthen your family and your marriage bond with God, we encourage you to dedicate a time each day for family prayers.  Holding each other’s hands during the family prayers as a symbol of family unity.  As you pray your family prayers, we ask that you include this prayer below.

When it is time to say this prayer, the husband should take his bride’s hands, place them together, and wrap his own hands around hers.  As husband and wife, pray these words:

Our Marriage Prayer.

Lord, help us to remember when we first met
and the strong love that grew between us
To work that love into practical things
So that nothing can divide us
We ask for words both kind and loving
and hearts always ready to ask for forgiveness
as well as to forgive
Dear Lord, we put our marriage into your hands

Amen

Praying the Our Marriage Prayer is just one of the activities in the World Day of Marriage Program.  World Marriage Day will be celebrated on the second Sunday of February each year.  If you wish to learn more about the Knights of Columbus World Day of Marriage Program, please refer to the Service Program Handbook.
