The Anniversary Prayer


Today is the sixth anniversary of our wedding.  The United Methodist Church has a marriage anniversary prayer in The Book of Worship, its liturgical resource.  I thought I would share it.  It goes like this:

O God, our heavenly Father,
   on this anniversary of our wedding
   we give you thanks for your past blessings,
   and for your continual mercies now.
We thank you that with the passing days
   you have increased and deepened our love for each other.
We praise you for all the joys of our home and family life.
Renew your blessings upon us now,
   as we renew our vows of love and loyalty;
and may your Holy Spirit strengthen us
   that we may ever remain steadfast in our faith and in your service;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
