Blessed are you Lord, God of Creation. Through your goodness we enjoy the fruits of the earth and share the loving gifts of family and friendship.
We ask your blessings on our guests, our table and our home. We offer thanks for the love with which this festive meal was prepared and for the love and joy which bring us together to partake of it.
In gratitude for your continued care over us, make us mindful of the needs of others, that we may show our thanks in the manner of our living.
May our hearts be filled with love and praise as we pray in your holy name. Amen.
