Catholic Prayer: Lent Table Blessing 4

Description:

These prayers are used from Ash Wednesday through Wednesday of Holy Week.

Prayer:

BEFORE THE MEAL

Leader: Let us turn back to the Lord, our God; for he is gracious and compassionate, long-suffering and ever constant, always ready to relent. Though our sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow.

ALL: Though they are red as crimson, they shall be made like wool.

Leader: Ever-patient God, meet us we set ourselves to know you and leave a blessing upon our table and all those dear to us. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

ALL: Amen.

AFTER THE MEAL

Leader: Abiding Lord, we thank you for this meal and for your faithful presence in our lives. As we grow more deeply open to you, we shall praise and magnify your name, for ever and ever.

ALL: Amen.
