Prayer at the Marriage of a Son or Daughter
Lord Jesus Christ, You said that on their marriage grown children would leave father and mother and cling to their spouse.
Our child has taken this step today, receiving the wonderful Sacrament of Marriage. Watch over him/her in this new life.
May this couple find happiness in each other and in You as they raise a new family to your honor and glory.
Help me to accept this marriage wholeheartedly with the realization that I am not losing one child, but gaining another.
