Marriage Prayer

An image from rehearsal, “Marriage Prayer.”

TOBIAH:
Blessed are you, God of our ancestors,
blessed forever is your holy name.
Let the heavens praise you, and all your creation for evermore.

SARAH:
The Lord our God told Adam it is not good to be alone; a partner I will make for you.

TOBIAH:
So Eve was made from Adam’s side to be his help and support.
And as it was for them, so it is for us tonight.

(Adapted from Tobit 8:4-9a)

We made it through the whole production for the first time last night. Two hours and twenty minutes which includes one song redo and a two-minute intermission instead of the planned ten.

    The wedding song which I heard Sunday night is incredibly beautiful. I pray all goes well. I, unfortunately, will be far away (back in Honduras) and thus unable to come.
