O God our heavenly Father,

on this anniversary of the day when we were made one in holy matrimony,

we give thee heartfelt thanks for thy blessing upon us then,

and for thy continual mercies until now.

We thank thee that with the passing days thou hast increased and deepened our love for each other.

We praise thee for all the joys of our home and family life.

Renew thy blessings upon us now, we beseech thee,

as we renew our vows of love and loyalty;

and may thy Holy Spirit strengthen us that me may ever remain steadfast in our faith and your service:

through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

O Lord Jesus, Your mercies are new every morning.

We thank You for another year of married life together for name and name.

Open their hearts always to receive more of Your love

that their love for each other may never grow weary

but deepen and grow through every joy and sorrow shared;

for You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now forever.  Amen.
