Prayer For A Meal
Thank you, God for this food. For rest and home. And all things good. For wind and rain and sun above. But most of all those we love. Amen.
Lord, thank You for the food before us, the family and friends beside us and the love between us. Amen.
God, we thank you for this food.
For rest and home and all things good.
For wind and rain and sun above.
But most of all
for those we love.
Bless us, oh Lord, and these thy gifts,
which we are about to receive from thy bounty,
through Christ, our Lord.
Father, You are mighty and strong to sustain our bodies. Thank You for the meal we are about to enjoy. Forgive us for forgetting how many pray for food to relieve their starvation. Bless and relieve the starvation of those who hunger, Lord, and inspire our hearts to seek out ways that we can help from our abundance. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
Father, Praise You for the nourishment the You provide. Thank You for meeting our physical needs of hunger and thirst. Forgive us for taking that simple joy for granted, and bless this food to fuel our bodies forward into Your will for our lives. We pray that we will be energized and be able to work for the glory of Your Kingdom. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
Our Father in Heaven, we give thanks for the pleasure of gathering together for this occasion. We give thanks for this food prepared by loving hands. We give thanks for life, the freedom to enjoy it all, and all other blessings. As we partake of this food, we pray for health and strength to carry on and try to live as You would have us. This we ask in the name of Christ, Our Heavenly Father.
Bless us, O God. Bless our food and our drink.
Since you redeemed us so dearly and delivered us from evil,
as you gave us a share in this food so may you give us a share in eternal life.
