Prayers for Married Couples

Prayers for Married Couples
Divorce rates increase with each passing decade. Book stores are stocked with shelves full of books offering relationship advice. Perhaps it is time to get back to the basics....back to the vows that marriage is built upon.

In an enchanting new book, Blessings and Prayers for Married Couples, Isabel Anders takes a refreshingly different approach. Blessings and Prayers for Married Couples is meant to be used as a Bible study and prayer guide for married couples.

Taking seven lines of the marriage vows, Anders opens with her thoughts on the vow section. She then presents several prayers—some contemporary and others from times past—scripture, quotes, and stories that pertain to the section of vow being discussed. Each section ends with “Questions for Reflection” that will aid a couple in evaluating their lives and their marriage, and guide them to discussing thoughts and feelings.

The book has a very poetic feel. Easily read, it guides a couple to sharing the most precious prayer time with each other before God. In so doing, you may find your marriage is strengthened. In Blessings and Prayers for Married Couples, Isabel presents a fact that "couples who pray together have a 1 percent divorce rate." (page xiii)

Blessings and Prayers for Married Couples is available from online retailers such as www.amazon.com or from the publisher at www.liguori.org
