Prayer For Family Christmas Dinner
Thank you for this table full of wonderful people.
Thank you for this table full of fabulous food.
Thank you for this table full of festive fellowship.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Love brought Jesus to the earth, and love brings us to this Christmas table.
Today as we share this holiday feast, may we also share with one another a joyful heart and a warm smile.
May our Christmas dinner be filled with kindness. And may the memories of today warm our hearts for years to come.
Lord, thank you for the food before us this Christmas evening. Bless it and may it nourish our bodies and its representation bless our spirits.
I am grateful that you provided everything needed for its preparation.
Bless all involved in cooking and serving the delicious meal too. May we enjoy it.
In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
In a world where so many are hungry, may we eat this food with humble hearts; In a world where so many are lonely, may we share this friendship with joyful hearts. Amen.
Round this table, here to pray. First, we thank you for the day. For our family and our friends. Gifts of grace that heaven lends. Living water, daily bread. Countless blessings our God sends. Thank you, Jesus, for them all. For the great ones and the small. When we're happy, when we're sad. On the good days and the bad. We are grateful, we are glad. Amen.
God of all gifts, we thank you for the many ways you have blessed us this day. We are grateful each of those who are gathered around this table. We ask you to bless us and our food and to bless those we love who are not with us today. In our gratitude and love, we remember your humble birth into our lives and pray for those who are without enough to eat. We remember the stable in which you were born and pray for those who have no place to live. We remember your challenging message of caring and giving and we pray for peace in families and nations throughout the world. We bless you and give you thanks in your Spirit who brings our hearts to life the Christmas Day and forever. Amen.
