Merciful and Gracious Father,
All praise and honor be to you,
father of our faith and
forgiver of our sins
for you began in creating light (Gen 1:3) and
have sent us yourself, the light of the world.(John 9:5).
Forgive our sin and draw us to yourself this day
that we might enjoy your special presence
among friends and family at your dinner table.
Thank you for your infinite love and tender mercies (Rom 12:1)
that accepted us as we were,
but did not leave us to wallow in our sins.
In the power of your Holy Spirit,
bless the food before us and us to your service.
In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
