Most merciful and gracious Lord, grant to these your children the strength to fulfill the vow they have just made between them. Guide them with your sure hand through all the chances and changes which lie before them. That their love may be strong, that their home may be a source of warmth and understanding for all who come there. Guide them, keep them, sustain them, help them, that your loving will may be done through them, and that their joy may be full.

We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
