We thank You for being here with us
as we celebrate this cherished holiday
to honor Your precious, sacred birth.
We recognize and acknowledge
that all the material pleasures we enjoy today,
the food, the gifts, and everything else
come from You, Lord,
through your grace, your compassion,
and Your love for us.
Help us throughout the year
to always strive to be worthy
of all the blessings You have given us,
our family, our friends and our comforts,
by living our lives in Your will
according to Your Holy Word.
We pray that You will bless this food
and everyone at this table.
In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
