She actually laughs at him. But in a good-natured way. And then, his voice breaking, he starts to pray the Hail Mary with her. Smack-dab in the middle, he forgets the words. But why was it so awkward to think about praying together as a couple? Praying together can actually be more intimate than sex. You have to bare your soul.
Faith without prayer is just a hobby. You see a lot of bogus statistics on the Web. Remember this: Your destination is heaven, and you want to spend eternity there. And eternity is kind of a long time. Your marriage is the school where you learn how to live in heaven. You learn to put God at the center, and your relationship flourishes. Love surrounds you. So think about that. Look at it from every angle. See how important praying together really is. I know human nature. Start with seven minutes a day. But more time is fine. Less is fine, too.
Just start. Getting over that hurdle is the most important thing. When should you pray? Try finding a time when you both feel most alive. How should you pray? Then ask God to help you to love him better tomorrow than you did today. I always tell people to end with the Hail Mary. If you can remember the words.

But may be you could try to spend the first 7 minutes in prayer before the start of a date. I sometimes use the same method while driving to work in the morning to use the time to pray the Holy Rosary and the day at work has always being good. After failed first marriages for both of us, my boyfriend and I work hard at keeping God first in our lives and our relationship.
We pray by phone almost every night. The most important thing is we do pray together. It means the world to me! One thing my fiance and I did to start praying together is we picked a different way to pray each night. Some of it was spontaneous prayer and some more traditional Liturgy of the Hours.
It helped us grow where we needed to grow but also gave us comfort with something we knew. This is an awesome article! We are Singles For Christ coordinators. It is a Catholic ministry catering to young adults. We are wondering if we could publish this as well as other articles here on Chastity Project. God bless you all. Thank you for posting,I read the story with a great big pain in my heart. A long time ago the priest who married us,told us, on your knees every night,and pray together. My husband was on his knees,and i said we can do our prayers by ourself.
He was still learningl have been a Catholic from birth,That is why now the tears are on my face. How did i let this beautiful grace go past. Needless to say we separated ,not get divorced. Will include you and your husband in prayers. Leave the rest to God; who knows for God nothing is impossible.

This is a great article, thank you. My husband and I have worked in marriage-prep ministry for 10 years and have always told couples that praying together was, as weird as it may sound, more intimate than sex. Reading that you wrote the exact same thing was awesome!
Praying together every day and especially our prayer together before going to sleep has been transforming! God bless! Thank you for the post! I have prayed to some extent in most relationships. But I have prayed more for and with the one I am with now.
And it shows! I love her more than any of the others, who are so distant now I barely remember. Great article, but it needs a caveat. One of the comments properly notes that prayer is more Intimate than sex, the physical serves the spiritual. Therefore, as when I was studying for the priesthood I did not pray with a chalice and paten in my hands that was reserved for ordinationso I believe that the dating couple should not pray holding hands as that is proper only when the two have become one. My sisters may back me up on this one.
Such that it plumbs the depths of who she is. If discernment le to a separatio of a dating couple the hurt and doubt will run so much deeper in her as she handles the reality. She will doubt herself, men, And God to some degree. Yes, pray when you date long prayers atbthe beginning of the date in daylight, short loving departure prayers when after having been with her for hours prudence says leave now!
When married, hold hand and, as I belive all married should, end your night prayers by restating you wedding vows. May the peace of Christ be with you! My husband of 51 years, and I attended your mission at our church almost 2 years ago. My husband is not a Catholic but I still hope since our children are grown and married themselves, He does attend Mass every Sunday with me. I was afraid in a way to bring up praying together, but low and behold when I did he said yes. That is now the most wonderful part of our day, and we would not skip it for anything.
On spring break, when the grandkids are staying with us they have ed in with us to pray and continued to do so at home. I have been trying to find a prayer for chastity and self control. I have found prayers to Saint Maria Goretti, but I am still looking for a better one to pray with my boyfriend. Any suggestions? Joseph, Blessed Mother, St. Agnes…there are so many, all wanting to pray for us to be chaste! God bless you and your boyfriend for desiring chastity!
You should look into the confraternity of angelic warfare! Thanks be to God that my husband initiated praying together before we married. At first, he lead us in prayer and I would just chime in here and there, but over time, as I grew in my faith and felt less intimidated by praying aloud, we took turns leading one another in prayer. It is such a blessing in our marriage! We will have said the Catholic prayers for dating couples offering together for almost fifty years.
It is good to hear young people just as committed to prayer as some were in the last generation. Great post, Jon. So simple, but so important. We were actually better about praying together before we were married. We prayed together, but with little consistency. Just recently we have developed a regular prayer routine and the are noticeable. Great post!!! My marriage will be my only marriage. It is a lifetime giving of self to your partner. We just wanted to enjoy and value what we have. We always pray for the same man as you. I value God more than anything else. Marriage is sacred. To all the single ladies out there, God will give us the best man just like what He did to Teresa.
Oh, And I am so so young to enter into commitment. Great job to you Mr. Name required. required. Your information is secure. Well, yeah, of course I was that awkward young man. And yes, Teresa ended up marrying me anyway. How do I know that? And when should you start? No excuses. Post A Comment. Share this with a friend.Catholic prayers for dating couples
