Wedding Meal Prayer

by Holly Parmer
(Ste. Genevieve, MO)

God our Father, & Lord of all Creation:

We gather here now to celebrate the love and commitment of (bride) & (groom), as they share their first meal together as husband and wife.

We thank You for giving Your Holy blessing today upon their marriage, and ask that You continue to bless them with Your love and mercy throughout their lives together.

Let this be the first of many loving meals shared together with their family and friends, and blessed by Your amazing grace.

And with (bride) & (groom), as we are their family, friends, & loved ones gathered here in Your presence,
we ask for Your Holy blessing upon this meal as together we say:

Bless us, oh Lord, and these Thy gifts, which we are about to receive from Thy bounty; through Christ our Lord, Amen.
