Wedding: Seeds Prayer for Luke and Kylie


The prayer I offered for Luke and Kylie’s Wedding on the weekend based around the four aspects of our spiritual life. Prayer and more photos below…


Holding up the packet of Seeds
Holy community of gracious hospitality, in the midst of our homelessness you extend us an invitation to Grow Home.

We thankyou that Luke and Kylie have heard your call to follow in the vocation of religious brothers and sisters through the ages and that our own mothers and father to grow new households of love.
As they make vows today to share their possessions we pray they would be set free from the burden of wealth and that the poor would always be with them.
In their promise of sexual fidelity may they experience your wild creative power in their bodies and share the sacred connections between your Spirit and all creation.
As they vow mutual submission, guide them in their use of power. Grace them to lose well, to fail boldly and sacrifice themselves with the same passion with which you lived and died.
Lord hear us.
All: Lord hear our prayer

Holding up the Bible

May you Know the Word. May God’s word guide you, choosing your stories and storying your choices. Not ancient words on a page but the living Spirit of Christ among you.
Lord hear us.
All: Lord hear our prayer

Holding up the Credo Cafe bowl

May you Eat Slow. May your production and consumption of food around the table of your household build connections with God, creation and others. May your eyes be opened in the breaking of the bread and bear witness to the marriage feast to come where all are invited and there is enough for all.
Lord hear us.
All: Lord hear our prayer

Holding up the bottle of oil

May you Go Engage, sent out on Christ’s mission to preach good news; speaking truth to the powers and to each other; naming and casting out that which is evil in our world and within; and may you heal and be healed.
Luke and Kylie you have already taught us much about what it means to heal. There will be much that you will still have to learn and much more for you to teach us.
And so in the missionary practice of Christ’s disciples I annoint you with healing oil; the sign of the cross upon you, that in the midst of our brokenness we may share with you in the power of Christ’s healing touch.
Lord hear us.
All: Lord hear our prayer
Amen.
