Thank You, God, for the food we are about to eat, for those who are here to share these blessings, for the generosity of our hosts that make this possible. Bless those who are here and those who are in our hearts, and all those who are not as fortunate on this day. Amen.
Christ Jesus, my Lord, I thank You for strengthening me. I’m awed that You have considered me faithful and given me work to do for You. I am full of gratitude that I was shown mercy, even though I acted in ignorance and unbelief. Lord, I thank You that Your grace continually overflows to me, along with faith and love. I thank You for displaying Your patience in me, as an example to those who will believe in You for eternal life. Amen.
