What is a prayer for married couples?

Almighty and eternal God,

You blessed the union of married couples
so that they might reflect the union of Christ
with His Church:
look with kindness on them.
Renew their marriage covenant,
increase Your love in them,
and strengthen their bond of peace
so that, with their children,
they may always rejoice in the gift of
Your blessing.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.
