Description:

These prayers are used during the weeks following the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord until Ash Wednesday.

Prayer:

BEFORE THE MEAL

Leader: Lord, we committ ourselves to you, trusting in your great love. Everything waits for you full of hope, all the living ask you for food.

ALL: You open your hand, always in time, and sustain our every movement.

Leader: Lord, bless our family through this meal and renew the energies we use in your service. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, in whom all things hold together, for ever and ever.

ALL: Amen.

AFTER THE MEAL

Leader: Father, we thank you for this food and all the daily reminders of your care for this house. To you, Guardian of all, be honor and glory, both now and for ever.

ALL: Amen.
