Meal Time Prayer

God of Promise,
Your Word is as sweet as honey, and your promise fills us with life.

As we gather around the table to eat and drink, we remember all those who go without the nutrition needed to sustain them.

Bless the farmers who work in the fields, helping them produce what is needed for life.

Bless the children whose growing bodies need the nourishment of the harvest.

And bless us with the wisdom to meet them face to face.

Give to us all your daily bread, and fill us with your everlasting promise of life.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
