For all Thy favors to us, father, we have in the past been slow in our appreciation and gratitude.  We realize more and more from Thy continued mercies the love Thou hast for us.  Help us to be more appreciative, and to become more identified with Thy service.  Give us our daily bread and forgive us our sins, for Christ’s sake.  Amen.

(A William Nyce., and Hubert Bunyea. Grace Before Meals. Philadelphia, PA, 1911)
