A Prayerbook for Husbands and Wives
A rich collection of prayers for all occasions written by, and uniquely tailored for, a husband and wife to use together. In their engaging foreword, Walter and Ruthanne Wangerin describe their practice of prayer and the compelling role prayer has played in their relationship. In addition, they suggest helpful, creative ways spouses can use the book together.
Prayers are grouped under six major headings: Daily Living as Husband and Wife, Love and Loving, Times of Suffering, For the Faith of My Spouse, Roles as Children and as Parents, and Traveling. Topics and occasions for the prayers are as universal and as personal as the experiences of marriage partners everywhere. The Wangerins offer a collection of prayer litanies that turn everyday events into shared, sacred occasions and make special events even more meaningful. The final section of the book provides marriage partners with simple step-by-step instructions for a private, yearly retreat that can renew and refresh their love for one another and their faith in God.
