to the new priest's wife, wondering & worrying about the future

This comment was recently sent to me: 
I have been a priest’s wife for just under two days. Please pray for me. I have no idea what the future has in store for us!!

Please pray for this new priest, priest's wife, and any children they have!

Bless this marriage and his priestly ordination and grant unto these Your servants  a peaceful life, length of days, chastity, love for one another in a bond of peace, offspring long‑lived, fair fame by reason of their children, and a crown of glory that does not fade away.
Account them worthy to see their children's children. Keep their wedlock safe against every hostile scheme; give them of the dew from the Heavens above, and of the fatness of the earth. Fill their houses with bountiful food, and with every good thing, that they may have to give to them that are in need, bestowing also on them that are here assembled with us all their supplications that are unto salvation.
For You are a God of mercy and of compassion, and to You do we send up Glory: as to Your eternal Father and Your All‑Holy, Good, and Life‑creating Spirit, both now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen


  1. I have said the prayer and I will pray it again. My best to you both. I am of the Eparchy of Passaic( Bishop Kurt Burnette).

    1. When Bishop Kurt was 'just' a father, he married us- along with Bishop Botean and Father Frank... say hi if you see him!

  2. I usually don't delete comments, but when I do, they contain obscenities and/or 'spam.'

  3. I have prayed for them....Joe from the Eparchy of Phoenix

  4. Prayed for them, Joe from the Eparchy of Phoenix
