Prayer after Communion

Option A

By the power of this sacrifice, O Lord,
accompany with your loving favour
what in your providence you have instituted,
so as to make of one heart in love
those you have already joined in this holy union
(and replenished with the one Bread and the one Chalice).

Through Christ our Lord.

Option B

Having been made partakers at your table,
we pray, O Lord,
that those who are united by the Sacrament of Marriage
may always hold fast to you
and proclaim your Name to the world.

Through Christ our Lord.

Option C

Grant, we pray, almighty God,
that the power of the Sacrament we have received
may find growth in these your servants,
and that the effects of the sacrifice
we have offered may be felt by us all.

Through Christ our Lord.
