“On this journey prayer is important, it is necessary, always: he for her, she for him and both together. Ask Jesus to multiply your love.” – Pope Francis
As Pope Francis suggests, praying as a couple is good for your relationship, plain and simple.
A recent analysis of data regarding couples’ and their religious practices found that 78% of couples who regularly attend religious services together reported being very, or extremely happy. Also, couples who pray almost once a week or more frequently are considerably more likely to report being very happy in their relationship.
Consider that God wants to be a part of your lives, and know that allowing Him in will do wonders for your relationship.
