I hope I do not disrespect anyone of native or Mohican heritage by my request.. but I am looking for a (any) native american or wedding prayer. Not just nrestricted to a wedding prayer, if you have a special prayer you could share with me. thanks for any help in advance,

Back by popular demand......
Now you feel no rain
Each of you shall be shelter to the other
Now you feel no cold
For each of you shall be warmth for the other
Now there is no more loneliness
Now you are two persons
But there is only one life for you
Go now to your dwelling
To enter into the days of your life together
And may your days be good and long
Upon the earth.
(excerpt from Native American Marriage ceremony)
......if this doesn't suit - I think I can find a few others.....will get back to you!
