PRAYER AT HOME AFTER THE WEDDING
BEFORE THE COUPLE’S JOURNEY TO THE BRIDE’S HOUSE
LEADER: Glory to God in the highest.
CEL: Peace and hope to people on earth, now, always and forever.
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: We glorify You, O mighty God, who instituted the family and brought blessings to family life. This day, we give thanks for all the blessings given to our family. You have blessed this family with a new member. We all accept ….. (Name) as a daughter in our family. May the family life that they are starting today be blessed with prosperity. We are profoundly grateful to the all-benevolent God for making the holy liturgy and the 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.
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.
ALL: 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.
Nallavanaam daivathinu nandiyekidaam.
Nallavanaam daivathinu sthuthikal-ekidaam.
Nallavanaam daivathinu sthothramekidaam.
