At the Being, Knowing, and Doing workshop I did in Newark, NJ, last week, we prepared to eat lunch. We were invited to pick up a little prayer card on our tables and to sing the following, using the melody of the Old One Hundreth (Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow). I love it! Perfect for Thanksgiving!
Be present at our table, Lord
Be here and everywhere adored.
Thy creatures bless and grant that we
May feast in Paradise with Thee.
We thank Thee, Lord, for this our food.
For life and health and ev’ry good;
By thine own hand may we be fed;
Give us each day our daily bread.
Thanks for sharing a beautiful ” THANKSGIVING ” prayer.Yes, we are all blessed with God”s providential care.God is always providing us of all our needs in the table of plenty. If not of God”s love and mercy,where are we now. For me,as a catechist, He is the source of my joys. Everyday has trials of its own, but if we give our complete trust in Jesus, our divine healer and master,everything works out good, all for the glory of His name. And to share with you this food for thought,no matter how difficult life in thi planet could be, nothing can separate us fom the love of God.He is my ALL and my EVERYTHING. Then ” Give until it hurts. “
