From Prayers for the Newly Married (ACTA Publications):
(In the prayer "For a Faithful Love," after a brief reflection and scripture passage, there is the following prayer:)
God of all love,
you have given us a gift beyond all measure
in our love for each other,
a love that goes on caring year after year.
We ask your presence and help in our love for each other,
that it will continue to be the delight of our lives
and that, as other demands for our attention arise
we will continue to give each other the first place in our hearts.
Help our love for each other to keep growing
as we continue to choose each other, day after day, year after year,
grounded in your faithful love for each of us,
which never gives up on us.
