Mealtime Blessings

Lord, bless our meal
and as you satisfy our needs,
make us mindful of the needs of others.

Give food to the hungry, O Lord,
and a hunger for you
to those who have food.

May the Lord bless us and keep us.
May the Lord let his face shine on us.
May the Lord look kindly on us
and give us peace.

Bless us, O Lord, and these your gifts
which we have received
through Christ our Lord. Amen.

God in heaven,
bless the food of earth
and bless us at this table
with every gift from above. Amen.

May God bless our meal
and give us hearts open to each other.

May God who comes
bless our meal
and help us see his coming
every moment that we live. Amen.
