A 1997 Gallup Poll unearthed a noteworthy nugget of marital insight. It discovered that when a couple consistently prays together its chances of divorce plunges from one-in-three to one-in-1,152.
You don’t have to be religious to pray — just smart. Don’t worry about a formula, God appreciates simple sincerity. Try the “sorry, thank you, please” format. Express what you are sorry for. Thank God for the multitude of received blessings, including your spouse. Then discuss requests with the Divine. Remember to say “please.”
