God of forgiveness and love, we thank you for uniting us in your protective care. We believe that you are source of forgiveness and unity. In marriage, you have united us to collaborate in the divine plan of love. Moments of disagreements and quarrels divide our unity and love. Let the power of your Spirit come over us to strengthen our bond for each other. Help us to experience your forgiveness and love in more tangible ways so that we may forgive and love one another. Amen.
