O Merciful Father, we come to Thee in humbleness to thank Thee for these provisions, which Thou art constantly providing. We do thank Thee, O Lord, and pray that Thy Spirit will bring us to a greater realization of Thy love and that we shall work more faithfully in Thy cause. Accept our thanks for this food and save our souls from sin, for Christ’s sake. Amen.
