Is anyone aware of the origins of the Prayer of a Married Person? Is it of recent centuries, a father of the Church, or other derivation?

Prayer of a Married Person:

Lord Jesus Christ, by Your presence You blessed the wedding in Cana and showed us that You are the true priest of mystical and pure marriage. We thank You for the day on which by Your heavenly blessing You joined us in the sacrament of marriage. Lord, continue to bless and enrich our marriage in love companionship, mutual support, oneness of heart and progress in faith and life. Protect our Holy wedlock from sin, evil and danger. Nurture between us the spirit of understanding, the spirit of forgiveness and the spirit of peace, that no resentment, quarrel or other problem may cause us to stumble and fall. Grant us to see our own faults and not to judge each other. Keep our bond of love always new. Gladden our lives with the joys of marriage, that with one heart we may praise and glorify You. Amen.

I am not sure on the origin, but it is a beautiful prayer.  I'm curious of your question as well.

Every prayer has a story, and they are often ancient, ascribed to a Church Father. I agree that this one is beautiful, expressive, insightful and seems to have some acceptance across jurisdictions. It seems worthy of inclusion in daily prayers, but has a modern ring to it. Therefore, like any aspect of the faith, I am curious to its origin.
