PRAYER BEFORE MEALS


Heavenly Father, Your love is one of your most beautiful gifts that exists and will
continue to exist between us. And now we are celebrating that love with MRS. DELIA
BARLAN on her 65th birthday celebration today, including her retirement from 41 years of
dedicated and selfless government service at the Department of Agriculture.
Give her always, God, the wisdom and devotion in the ordering of her common life,
that she may be strength in need, a counselor in perplexity, and a comfort in sorrow and a
companion in joy. Make her life together with us a sign of Christs love. Continue bestow on
her the gift and heritage of her children and the grace to bring them up to know you and to
serve others and above all, you, o Lord. Give her such fulfillment in her affection for all that
she may reach out wholeheartedly with affection and concern for others.
And so, Father, we want to thank you for this day and the days to come when all
your blessings are bestowed upon us and served to nourish our bodies. Please bless all
that we are about to partake today your blessings which are about to be shared.
We ask you then to bless those who have prepared for it that they may continue to
share their blessings to everyone and to continue receive your graces.
We ask you to take part and take place in our tables and are our special guest. As
this food nourishes our body and mind, let your spirit feeds our soul and bless those who
have none that may find courage and strength through your will.
All these we pray in Jesus name. Amen.
