Grace And Mealtime Blessings

Saying grace transforms meals into occasions of gratitude! Give thanks to God for your meals through these blessings.

Bless us, oh Lord,
and these Thy gifts
which we are about to receive
from Thy bounty,
through Christ, our Lord.

Bless Us O Lord

Christ our God, bless us Your servants, our home, the food and drink before us for You are the Source of all blessings, now and forever and ever. Amen.

Lord Jesus, be our holy Guest, our morning Joy, our evening Rest and with our daily bread impart Thy love and peace in every heart.

Thank You, Lord, for this food You have set before us. And, more than that, Lord, thank You for giving us the capacity to enjoy it. Come join us at our table, Jesus; break bread with us and join our conversation. Give our spirits the energy and sustenance only You can impart on us.

Jesus, be with me now and please bless our food and all in this kitchen that helps me to prepare meals and keep my home orderly. Let me feel Your spirit, Your support, Your peace as I cook, clean and eat. Like Your companions in the Upper Room, let me be nourished and healed by Your presence.

Be present at our table, Lord, be here and everywhere adored. Thy creatures bless, and grant that we may feast in paradise with Thee.

by John Greenleaf Whittier

Dear Lord, bless this food to the nourishment of our bodies and us to Thy service. In Christ's name we pray, Amen.

Bless this food to our use, us to your service and bless the hands that prepared it.
