Help us, O Lord, to be more grateful for Thy blessings and the food which Thou dost provide for us each day.  We are not always as thoughtful as we should be; we acknowledge our sins and pray that we may be given the grace of God to be better and set a better example for those whom our actions and words might influence.  Amen.
