O King of the Universe, Lord of Bread,
We accept this meal as a moment of your grace, a favor we did not earn.
We realize you give us mercy and blessings.
We bought this food, but you gave it to us.
We enjoy the rising sun that you want to arise.
We enjoy the coming darkness because you give us rest as a grace.
May you reveal yourself to us Lord Jesus in the breaking of the bread.
May we share our blessings with others who have little food,
And be the hands of Jesus.
May we eat in peace and enjoy all good gifts from heaven.
