A Morning Prayer for Eating Well
O Lord, our provider and curator, we ask this day, as you have modeled, for our daily bread, that this bread would be filling and comforting, that it would point us to your providential and Sabbath table. As we eat, grow in us the virtues of temperance and liberality, that in so eating our fill of good food we would neither forget you nor steal from others. Grant us open hands to share with our brothers and sisters in need. Provide our bodies proper nourishment in our food this day so that when night falls, our bodies would be sustained through the night and given energy for the new day. Amen.
