Giving thanks before mealsPosted: August 22, 2011
“Bless this food to our use and us in your service and make us always mindful of the needs of others, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen”
One for breakfast:For cornflakes, tea and buttered toast, praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost
“For food and fellowship, Lord we thank you.”
Blessed art thou, oh Lord our God, king of the universe, who bringest forth bread from the earth.
God of goodness, bless our food,
Keep us in a cheerful mood.
Bless the cook and all who serve us.
From indigestion, Lord, preserve us.
Thank you for the food before us,
The friends around us,
The love between us,
and Your presence among us. Amen
Good Lord, we thank you:
for food, in a world where many walk in hunger;
for friends, in a world where many walk alone;
for faith, in a world where many walk in fear:
Good Lord, we thank you.
