• Go to Mass together – it’s the end all, be all of our faith.
We literally join the whole world in prayer as we celebrate the sacrifice of Christ and the greatest gift He could give us, Himself.
Q: I’ve read that it’s emotionally unchaste to pray with your significant other if you’re not married because prayer is an intensely intimate experience between you and God.
I’ve prayed the liturgy of the hours, chaplets of divine mercy, and rosaries with close friends daily, and we’ve discovered just how crucial that prayer has been to strengthening our friendship.
That level of commitment and trust opens the door for a greater level of intimacy, especially through prayer.
Why would I do that with them but not with the one that I’m discerning to spend the rest of my life with?
A: As I look back on my time high school and college, I’ve noticed that most of the friends that I still have from those days are friends that I prayed with.
Should I be sharing your addictions, regrets, or deepest sins with them? Knowing your intentions, as well as your boyfriend or girlfriend’s intentions, will help you know what kind of prayer is appropriate in that relationship.
Let me be clear, it is perfectly acceptable, and honestly necessary, to spend time in prayer with someone that you’re discerning to spend the rest of your life with.
Be aware of where the relationship is heading and what level of intimacy is appropriate. Prayer between couples can form a very powerful bond.
