Prayer of a Couple on the Anniversary of Marriage

 

We praise you, O God,
we bless you, Creator of all things,
who in the beginning made man and woman
that they might form a communion of life and love.

We also give you thanks
for graciously blessing our family life
so that it might present an image of Christ's union with the Church.

Therefore look with kindness upon us today,
and as you have sustained our communion
amid joys and struggles,
renew our Marriage covenant each day,
increase our charity,
and strengthen in us the bond of peace,
so that we may for ever enjoy your blessing.
Through Christ our Lord
Amen.
