God bless this for now we take.
For doing good for Jesus' sake.
This little prayer is our special family prayer. My Grandfather learned it when he was a little boy, then Mother Judith, them my sister and I. Every holiday, my Grandfather would sit at the head of the table and ask one of his Grandchildren to say the prayer, every once in a while he would say it himself.
Initially as a child, this prayer seems to say we earned this food because we were good. However it is saying the opposite, we are to use this food to do good for Jesus.
Do you have any family prayers?
