If Thou wilt accept our thanks, O God, for this food and our prayer for the forgiveness of our sins, do so and give us the spirit, the determination and the courage to live up to better ideals, ideals that will influence others with whom we are associated to do better, and that we may set for ourselves a standard from which we will never depart.  Amen.

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