May God, who has given you fifty years together, of his infinite goodness and mercy continue to bless you and your union. May the Father who created you, the Son who redeems you, and the Holy Spirit who sanctifies you, preserve and keep you all your days. The Lord with his favor look upon you, and so fill you with all spiritual benediction and grace; that you may so please him in this life, that in the world to come you may have life everlasting. Amen.
Heavenly Father, we thank You from the bottom of our hearts for your continued blessings on our union that have enabled us to reach another anniversary. We thank You for letting our love deepen and for helping us in time of trial. We know that without your assistance we would never have remained so close as we are.
We ask You to continue to watch over us, over our homes and families. Help us to renew our vows of love and loyalty and to strive to remain united with You, steadfast in our faith and in your service. Amen.
Lord, help us to remember when we first met and the strong love that grew between us.
To work that love into practical things so nothing can divide us.
We ask for words both kind and loving, and for hearts always ready to ask forgiveness as well as to forgive.
Dear Lord, we put our marriage into your hands.
O Lord, omnipotent and eternal God,
we give you thanks and we bless your holy name.
You created man and woman in your image and blessed their union,
so that each would be for the other a help and support.
Remember us today.
Protect us and grant that our love may be in the image
of the devotion and love of Christ for his Church.
Grant us a long and fruitful life together, in joy and in peace,
so that, through your Son and in the Holy Spirit,
our hearts may always rise to you in praise and good works.
