My friend John shared with me the other day the blessing his family prayed before meals. They prayed:
Thank you, GodFor this food.Help us.Make usKind and good.
What an extraordinarily simple prayer that says so much in so few words! I like it for the same reason John told me he does: ” Simple (honest) gratitude. Straight forward awareness that we need help. And a simple, honest desire to grow in the manifestations of love.”
