Prayer for married couples

Lord Jesus Christ, we give you thanks for our marriage and we ask you today to renew in our souls the grace of the sacrament.

Kneeling before you, we repent of our sins, and especially any sins of thought, word or deed that have harmed our spouse or our children. We beg you for the grace to be faithful and loving to one another, and to teach our children by our words and by our good example.

With all our hearts, we renew the commitment that we made before you on our wedding day. Bless and strengthen us as we come before you, aware of our weakness and the power of your grace.

May the angels of God, guard us and defend us from all evil. May Mary our Mother and Saint Joseph remain always in our home to bring peace, joy and happiness.
Amen.
