O dearest Lord Jesus Christ,
you joined a happy couple
at the feast at the wedding of Cana,
and by simply saying, “Fill the jars with water,”
you blessed them with the very best wine.
You revealed your glory,
and your disciples put their faith in you.
Because of your promise
about where two or three gather in your name,
we know you have also joined us today
for the wedding of Renata and Eric.
We pray, in your grace and mercy,
bless them also with your very best.
Reveal your glory to them in Word, Sacrament,
and in the many blessings you give them all their lives.
Always bring them closer to you,
and closer to one another
in the bonds of your love.
Your heavenly Father
is the giver of every good and perfect gift,
and in your name we give him thanks
for the food we are about to receive;
for you live and reign
with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
now and forever.
