I think those sound good overall- they are pretty similar to mine!

Here is the link to the thread I started with my prayers of the faithful at the end.

Some of yours might be a little long. I had 7, which may have been too much, but I wanted to pray for those things, so I kept them all in.

Some ideas for making yours a little less wordy:
First one: Take out one or two sentences (like the children’s children or one of the petitions for God’s blessing since you say it twice).
Second one: eliminate the second line.
Third: I like it.
Fourth: I like it.
Fifth: That one just doesn’t read right to me. “may eternal rest grant unto them” might be missing a subject.
Sixth: You can easily shorten that one by deleting the specifics and just say for all those who suffer.
Seventh: I like it.

I found that reading them aloud and having someone else read them aloud so I could hear them helped me pare them down a bit so I got my point across, in less words, which actually made them clearer.

These are just ideas, and I think if you feel strongly about some of the wording, you should keep it that way, even if it may be a little long. It is a prayer, after all. Good luck 🙂

@magilnyc: this is great! i had no idea, im def going to ask our priest about it!

i didnt care much for the clashing symbol part either.  I really like how they give us the book though so we can pick and choose, FI sat down and read them to each other the other night, i was almost in tears haha. ill never make it through the ceremony without crying

thank you so much for sharing, this is beautiful and if we’re allowed to, I’m totally going to ask if we can have our own too!
