Research on the power of relationship sentences for couples
In a series of five studies, researchers studied couple-centered prayer and found it very useful:
- Couple-centered prayer reduced revenge and guilt,
- The praying partners independently acknowledged this change in who made the prayer,
- Specifically, praying for a couple after being hurt increased the forgiveness for which they prayed. That was true even if one of the partners had an affair!

If you are in a troubled place about your relationship, prayer is a vehicle that can quickly get you out of your misery and into a solution. Because suffering comes from focusing on the ego itself. In other words, be worried about how your partner hurt you. How sorry you are for yourself. What reason do you have and how can you take revenge by giving him a cold shoulder or attacking? And most of all, how sad and lonely you feel.
Keep in mind that your attention is firmly fixed on YOU and YOUR PAIN in all these statements. So if you want to get out of suffering and enter into connection and joy, prayer may be your most powerful ally.

Relationship Prayer for Couples: An Invitation
So I invite you to select or write a prayer for love based on spirituality. If your partner is so inclined, invite her to choose or create a relationship prayer for your partner. In fact, I know some couples who create sentences together and say them together.
Another way to do this is to read spiritually-inspired literature, and sacred poems, or listen to guided meditations or music that you find spiritually uplifting. You can do it alone or with your partner. Just a brief dive into the group of thoughts, sounds, and feelings of the Higher Power will heal and amplify your partner’s love. By the way, I also suggested that you meditate together as expressed in the Meditation of the Loving Mother.
