Precious Lord Jesus, Wonderful God, Empowering Holy Spirit, thank You for being the power and force that gives me life.
As I try to look upon You, there are mysteries I cannot fathom. There are questions about You I cannot answer. There are ways about You, that I do not understand. When I begin to think I understand why You do things the way You do, I am confounded again by a mystery.
Yet when I do not always understand You, I love You and I trust You. Although there are many things I do not understand, there is one thing I do understand and one thing I do know.
I do understand and I do know that You love me. I do understand and I do know that You sent Your only begotten Son to earth to die for me, a sinner. I do understand and I do know that You call me to accept You and Your sacrifice upon the cross.
I do now accept You. I do now attest that I accept You as my Lord and Saviour who rose again on the third day. All these things I humbly pray in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.|
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. Amen
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. |
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever.
Our Holy Father in Heaven,|
We give thanks for the pleasure of gathering together for this occasion and the Blessings and Good Fortune You have bestowed upon us.
We give thanks for this food prepared by loving hands.
We give thanks for life and the freedom to enjoy it.
As we partake of this food,
We pray for health and strength to carry on and try to live as You would have us.
This we ask in the name of Christ
Our Heavenly Father. Amen
