Prayer of Blessing for Married Couples
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 thanks for graciously blessing the family life of your servants, so that it might present an image of Christ’s union with the Church.
Therefore look with kindness upon them today, and as you have sustained their communion amid joys and struggles, renew their Marriage covenant each day, increase their charity, and strengthen in them the bond of peace, so that they may forever enjoy your blessing.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
