Family Corner: Mealtime Blessings

Al Cole sent this prayer from “my Lutheran aunt and uncle. Said at most family gatherings.”

Come Lord Jesus, be our guest. Let this food to us be blessed.

Dreama Maxey sent “a mealtime blessing my family used. It was one that my dad, Davis T. Maxey, said.” 

Oh heavenly father, make us thankful for these and all our blessings. Pardon our sins and save us, for Christ’s sake. Amen.

Did you have a bedtime prayer growing up, or one that you say with your own children or grandchildren? Send it to Christine Mortlock, Minister to Children and Families, cmortlock@stjohnsroanoke.org. to include in the next edition of the Record.

Christina: “I grew up being sung this prayer at bedtime: Tender Shepherd, bless thy little lamb tonight. One, say your prayers, dear; two, close your eyes, dear; three, safe and happily fast asleep.”

This was published in the July issue of The Record.
