BLESSING OF THE THANKSGIVING FOOD
UNISON PRAYER Lord of life, we do not know the face of the future, any more than your disciples did. Like them, we have many questions: how to live, how to bear witness. Like them, we thirst for the spring waters of the Spirit to inspire us in our living to give us a heart language in our testimony. You have been raised in glory that we might rise with dignity. You live in power that we might live in peace. You are present everywhere that we might be fully present in our own lives.
SILENT / PASTORAL / LORD’S PRAYER Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
