O Loving God, You nourish and sustain us.
We thank You for the gift of food, which nourishes life.
You continue to be with us in so many wonderful and
marvelous ways, nourishing and sustaining us always
with food that gives life to all the aspects of our being.
Help us to use the many ways in which You nourish us as
sources of unity and life for all of Your people.
Allow us to grow in sensitivity to the plight of those who are
hungry, alone, frightened, shut out, uninvited, unwelcome.
