O Lord, may the mercies and love Thou showest us to be continued unto us each day, that we may have the strength and courage to acknowledge Thy great gifts and enter into Thy work with the determination to see its greater success.  Accept our thanks for this provision of food and save our souls from sin, for Christ sake.  Amen.
