PRAYER AT HOME AFTER THE WEDDING
LEADER: Glory to God in the highest.
CEL: Peace to the righteous on earth.
LEADER: Our Father in heaven
ALL: Hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth / as it is in heaven. Give us this day the bread we need / and forgive us our debts and sins / as we have forgiven those who offended us. Do not let us fall into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For, Yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.
LEADER: O good God, who established the family and blessed family life, we glorify you. Today, we remember with gratitude all the blessings bestowed upon this family. You have blessed this family with an additional new member. We all accept ….. (name) as our own daughter. We pray that the family life they start today will always be prosperous. O God, the bestower of blessings, we thank you together once again for making the sacred liturgy in the church and other wedding ceremonies so blessed. Mother Mary, Saint Joseph, pray to your Holy Son to become their family like your family. Lord, Father, Son and Holy Spirit forever and ever. Amen.
LEADER: Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.
(All sing a song of gratitude or the following song in Malayalam)
നല്ലവനാം ദൈവത്തിനു നന്ദിയേകിടാം
നല്ലവനാം ദൈവത്തിനു സ്തുതികളേകിടാം
നല്ലവനാം ദൈവത്തിനു സ്തോത്രമേകിടാം.
