Prayer over the offerings

Option A

Receive, we pray, O Lord,
the offering made on the occasion
of this sealing of the sacred bond of Marriage,
and, just as your goodness is its origin,
may your providence guide its course.

Through Christ our Lord.

Option B

Receive in your kindness, Lord,
the offerings we bring in gladness before you,
and in your fatherly love
watch over those you have joined
in a sacramental covenant.

Through Christ our Lord.

Option C

Show favour to our supplications, O Lord,
and receive with a kindly countenance the oblations we offer
for these your servants,
joined now in a holy covenant,
that through these mysteries
they may be strengthened
in love for one another and for you.

Through Christ our Lord.
