Good and Gracious God,
We gather together, Lord, at this table, giving thanks for all that we have and all that we are. Bless the food before us, and the hands that prepared and harvested it, and the earth that nurtured it. Thank you for seeing us through difficult days and anxious nights, and being alongside us in our sorrows and victories. May this time together fill out hearts, strengthen our ties, and give us peace. Amen.
