O God, unite our hearts in the never-ending bond of pure love. May our children bring You happiness and may Your generous love for them be returned to You, many times over. May the peace of Christ live always in our hearts and in our home. May we continue to have true friends who stand by us both in joy and in sorrow. May we be ready and willing to help and comfort all who come to us in need, and may the blessings promised to the compassionate someday be ours. May we find happiness and satisfaction in our occupations. May daily problems never cause us undue anxiety, nor the desire for earthly comforts dominate our lives. May our hearts’ first desire always be the hundredfold You promised to Your faithful people. May You bless us with many more happy years together and may You one day welcome us together into Your eternal kingdom. Amen.
