Almighty, merciful, and loving Father, we praise and bless you for bringing all of us together to celebrate this meal. We bless you for all the good gifts we receive from you, especially for peace and freedom. We ask you now to bless us to your service, and this food we are about to receive from your bounty, to our good. Father of all mercy, all praises, and honor to you this day and forever. Amen.
