BEFORE THE MEAL

Leader: Lord Jesus, in your love, bless this table and unite us more closely to you. We make this prayer gathered in your Spirit, both now and for ever.

AFTER THE MEAL

Leader: Lord God, we thank you for this meal and praise you for the gift of your Spirit, who takes our life and the inmost thoughts of our hearts and transforms us into the likeness of your Son, who lives and reigns, for ever and ever.

ALL: Amen.
