BEFORE THE MEAL

ALL: Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his mercy endures for ever.

Leader: Ever-faithful God, bless the food we are about to eat and unite us in mind and heart to your Son, Jesus Christ, the Lord.

ALL: Amen.

AFTER THE MEAL

Leader: God our strength, we thank you for food, life, and the enduring hope that you share with us through Jesus Christ our Lord.

ALL: Amen.
