God, thank you for always being there for us. We ask you to be present in this place as we eat this meal. Engulf us with your love and let us pour it on others when we leave this place. Lord, we come against any manner of strife and contention that tends to arise during mealtimes, in the name of Jesus. We declare that we shall enjoy this meal for the glory of your holy name. In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.
