Prayer for Wives of Ordained Catholic Deacons

IMG_7636

Here is a prayer to share with the wives of ordained Catholic deacons who may be in your parish or those you know.  Women married to ordained deacons live a distinct and spiritually important calling in the Church today!

Heavenly Father, we praise and thank you for all you have given us in our lives, through the Church, diaconal formation and life with our husbands. With and through the heart of Mary, our mother and model of faith, send your Holy Spirit to us and make us docile to his inspirations. Set our hearts on fire with love for our husbands and your holy will. Empower our husbands to know you and serve your Church with zeal and holiness. Please heal any negative emotions and wounds in our hearts and spirits. Help us each to discover that “place of heart” with you where nothing disturbs and distracts us from fulfilling with love, the demands of our mutual, yet distinct callings with our husbands for the renewal of the World. Remind us to glance towards you, Heavenly Father, and gather up the present moment as a living sacrifice for your glory and the renewal of others. Guide our prayers and move in the Church to send us many holy vocations of all kinds: to the ordained priesthood, permanent diaconate, consecrated religious or married life and the generous lay state. All this Father, we pray in the Name of Jesus Christ by the guidance of your Holy Spirit. Amen
