Prayer for NFP Couples


O Jesus! Merciful and generous to allow co-creation with You, hear me.


For the times I did not trust in Your love for me, Jesus, have mercy on me.

For the times I lost sight of my spouse’s whole person, Jesus, have mercy on me.

For the times I reduced spouse to his/her fertility status, Jesus, have mercy on me.

For the times I have grumbled, been angry, or despairing, Jesus, have mercy on me.


From the desire to be in control, deliver me, Jesus.

From the fear of what my friends and family will say, deliver me, Jesus.

From the fear of being judged, deliver me, Jesus.

From the spirit of selfishness, deliver me, Jesus.

From the spirit of self-righteousness, deliver me, Jesus.

From the desire to impress others, deliver me, Jesus.

From the spirit of resentment, deliver me, Jesus.

From the fear of pregnancy, deliver me, Jesus.

From the fear of miscarriage, deliver me, Jesus.

From the wounds, baggage, and pain of my past, deliver me, Jesus.

From a fear of intimacy, deliver me, Jesus.


That I may desire sexual intimacy with my spouse at the times we are able to be together, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.

That I may lovingly exhibit self control, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.

That my heart will be receptive, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.

That I will be open to Your will, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.


That we may develop genuine, non-sexual intimacy, Lord, hear our prayer.

That we may learn and live out holy, healthy sexual intimacy, Lord, hear our prayer.


Amen.
