Prayer for relationships

Praying with other people is an important way to express love and to learn what God hopes for relationships. The prayer below was originally written by Heidi and Cory Busse for engaged and married couples. Even if you are not currently in a couple this Valentine's Day, offer this prayer with members of your family or one of your closest friends as a way of including God in your relationships.

God of everlasting love,
help us to find new joy in the face of routine,
to share our needs with an open heart,
to acknowledge when we have been wrong,
to forgive as we have been forgiven,
to love as your son, Jesus, taught us to love.
