It is my earnest & fervent prayer that it will be the Lord's blessing to us that Cornelius Jacobus Jansen ("Corrie") and I will marry soon and live happily together, in holy matrimony, for as long as we both shall live. Please Lord hear my prayer and guide Corrie & I to the altar so that we may enjoy the sanctity of marriage. May we exemplify what you want to see in a truly loving, devoted, faithful & committed husband & wife. I pay too that we will have the blessing & support of our children.
St. Jude, intercede with God for me that He bring visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolation and help of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings. Amen
