Building couple dating devotion foundation intimacy spiritual
When you know that you’re going to marry someone prayer is a very real way to strengthen your relationship and build it’s foundation on God.That commitment, vulnerability, and intimacy are key to marriage, and discerning your vocation.The level of commitment and trust are significantly higher, so the level of intimacy, in this case spiritual intimacy should be higher, too.While dating it’s important to your emotional chastity in check. It happens with each glance, small touch, kind word, and inside joke you quietly laugh about when you’re around others.If you’re only intimate before and during sex, you’re missing out… If you’re too busy to be around each other often, a lifestyle change is due.However, unless know that you’re going to marry your boyfriend or girlfriend it can be dangerous to spend intimate prayer time together.
Being in a relationship with someone has many aspects to it, some that we don’t always think about daily.
• Spend sometime in the adoration chapel – it’s a great way to have prayer time together while being able to focus on Christ, and not each other.
• Praying the Rosary, Liturgy of the Hours, and/or Chaplet of Divine Mercy – these are great ways to pray as a group and these prayers bring us more into prayer as a community.
• 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.
