A prayer to say before meals:

Heavenly Father, 

Jesus was able to make sure 

that everyone who came to his table 

had enough to eat and drink. 

Help us to make the most of all we’ve been given, 

making sure that we give & share for the benefit of all, 

saying sorry to you for what we may have taken in greed, wasted in ignorance,

or denied to others by not caring,

for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Please take care, be safe, and be wise –

and let’s all put others ahead of ourselves.

Go with God and may the peace of the Lord

be with you all​

 

Our very best love to you all,

Rev. Tim & Mrs. Vicar
