This prayer is a blessing from the Bible (Numbers 6 v 24-26). It can be used to bless others as well as ourselves:

 

The Lord bless us and watch over us;

The Lord make his face to shine upon us and be gracious to us;

The Lord look kindly on us and give us peace.

Amen.

The following prayers can be said before meal times as a way to reflect on our blessings:

 

Lord,

Thank you for family and friends

Thank you for times like these

Where we can gather together,

Share in food, drink and relax.

 

Please bless this meal, and all that it means.

May the food nourish us,

And the fellowship enrich our lives.

 

Most of all, may we always invite you into our school,

And into our hearts.

Amen.

 

 

Dear God,

Please help us to remember those who don’t have enough food to eat.

And those who do not have clean water to drink.

We are lucky and have enough and for this we are thankful.

Amen.

 

 

Dear Father above,

Thank you for the delicious food that you provide for us.

Please help us to remember those out there who do not have as much as us.

Sorry for those who we forget about. Help us to show kindness. 

Amen
