Nothing starts without a prayer, even at a dry spell of a date, eager to have a physical contact with your spouse, heartbroken or at a verge of losing that person you truly love, there’s always one thing to consider – Praying.
Before you go on to woe that beautiful babe or handsome dude in your lecture theatre, at work or in the fellowship chapel, its better to get down on your knees and make a prayer invocation.
Self Prayer practice is as good as the fancy gifts, hangouts, date dinners and the sweet romantic messages you exchange with you spouse to make him/ her madly fall in love with you. Both male and female Catholics can do prayer practices for their crushes and marital lovers.
Often times, when it comes to matters of the heart, young lovers tend to involve friends, elderly couples, relatives, professionlas such as Marital / sex counselors to help them mediate between.
Others have apparently resorted to digital platforms offering spouse connection services (Online Dating).
The church recognizes marital relationships among its members so long as its based on spiritual grounds. So next time you’re experiencing a relationship low (or high!), remember, there are some folks up in heaven who are ready and willing to help you get better at love:
As goes the slogan: “With St Philomena, Nothing is impossible,” this Saint is good to invoke when one has just married someone or is at the start of a relationship.
If there’s one thing for certain, St Philomena knew what her heart wanted. She dedicated her virginity to Jesus. She willingly stood firm to go through hell and waters to make sure this happened.
At a certain point, St Philomena survived horrific torture after she denied marriage to Emperor Diocletian I during the persecution of Christians.
The good news is that you need not be a virgin, nun etc. Invoke her help on starting your Marital relationship off right.
Another great Saintoyou will want to intercede for your relationship is St Anthony. Known for his Sainthood help in regaining lost properties such as Vehicles, Money Pass, Job etc, St Anthony’s is all you want when feeling rather desperate in a relationship.
Have you an Ex-lover you truly want back? Have you ever yearned for a second chance and he / she has slapped you with an ignore button, blacklisted your contacts and blocked you on social media? Don’t be desperate any longer!
St Anthony “Tony” (as many call him) is a Patron Saint for lost causes.
For instance, that Ex lover whom you accidentally WhatsApp or dream about late at night, a girl who works in your office, a dude in your class and or a crush who has already said “NO, I’m busy”
Try and see if invoking St. Tony can help you get over these rough patches and he / she will change their hearts around entirely.
“St. Dwynwen Patron of Lovers Pray for us”
The quoted litany prayer above summarises it all. When your basically high on endorphins, love starts feeling an actual, wonderful, perfect drug, (you are not crazy, its a thing). Start praying to St. Dwynwen – patron for lovers.
Have friends, relatives or yourself forsaken thee despising the financial, academic status or the family background of your spouse? Do you feel frightened about how the future shall be with him / her given his /her financial, academic, religion, beauty etc, Worry Not!
You and your lover might have set up some goals and you’re hopping for a better future, keep pushing your dreams by praying through Saint Dwynwen.
She was a princess who instead of marrying the prince of her dreams, (her father’s wish, or hers), she dedicated her life to God and started a convent
St Dwynwen prays on behalf of all the hopes & dreams of true lovers. Her invocation is good when your falling fast especially when thefuture with someone looks hazy.
Well known for Inspiring the myth of St Claus, St Nick got his start by helping a broke father come up with three substantial dowries for his three daughters resulting into making happy marriages.
Almost everyone admires a happy marriage however, due to unavoidable circumstances caused by great desires, financial difficulties, healthy challenges- happiness fades away.
Worried about marriage practicalities such as wedding, house, car, baby, etc, invoke St Nicholas for intercession. Assuredly, you will have a happy marital relationship.
St Anne & St Joseph.
Our next focus is on St Anne and Joseph, praying through these two Saints is a good idea especially when you just want to find someone already. This invocation is good for Bachelors and Sphincters.
“St Anne send me a man,” the old catholic rhymes goes. St Anne -the maternal grandfather of Jesus is religiously attributed to her masterful matching skills. She arranged Mary’s marriage to Joseph.
Similarly, St Joseph is a prime example of steadfast, patience, rock star of a husband. Invoke for the help of St Anne & St Joseph when you are direly looking for a marital partner.
