PRAYER 4

BEFORE THE MEAL

Leader: The Lord God is our refuge and strength, a helper close at hand in times of distress. A voice cries, "Prepare in the wilderness a way for the Lord. Clear a highway across the desert for our God."

ALL: Every valley shall be lifted up, every mountain and hill brought low.

Leader: Lord God, bless this table and let the food we share strengthen us in your service. We ask this through the One who comes in your name, and keeps us safe, for ever and ever.

ALL: Amen.
