“For where there are two or three gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:20, Douay-Rheims
Praying together as a married couple was a goal of ours after attending our Marriage Retreat at the end of June. A Christian marriage should be between not just the couple, but include God in everything – Hence, the name of the retreat “Three To Get Married”. We learned so much from the couple and priest who led the weekend, and one of the most important things we came away with was that praying together, as a couple, should be the backbone of your marriage, keeping Christ in the center of your relationship.
As we all know, it’s easier said than done when ‘real life’ enters the picture, but this is something Craig and I are striving to keep at the forefront. We have SO VERY MUCH to be thankful for, and always need to continually ask for God’s wisdom in our lives.
So in your daily prayer lives, I ask for you to pray for us as we build our marriage and try to keep Christ as the cornerstone. We will be happy to pray for you, as well, and certainly continually ask for your safety, well-being, and happiness everyday.

*PS* If you’ve never read from the Douay-Rheims translation of the Bible, oh how you should! It’s my favorite translation because I feel like it makes the Word of God come alive like beautiful poetry – as it should!! When Craig and I first began dating, we were sitting on the sofa and he reached down for his Bible. I remember thinking to myself, if by some strange coincidence he pulls out a Douay-Rheims version, I know he is meant for me, God!!! Well, lo’ and behold…What translation of the Bible does Craig have??? 🙂 God has an amazing plan for each of us, doesn’t He?
