Father Lord, mealtimes are not just times for eating but also for bonding as a family. Lord, as we eat, reinforce your love upon us as a family. Help us to walk and work together in love. Let the love of Christ overflow in this family that we may be able to go out there and share it with others. May this family be salt and light in the world. Let our bonding time go beyond meals for the glory of your holy name. In Jesus’ name, we believe and pray, Amen.
