we praise you for this sacrament,
the gift of your Son to his Church.
As we share this supper together
may we know his strength
and enter the fulness of his life and love.
give us today our daily bread.
God of seed and growth and harvest,
creator of need, creator of satisfaction;
give us, we pray, our daily bread,
sufficient and assured for all.
Give us also, we pray, the bread of life,
and we shall have a care to feed the hungry,
and to seek for peace and justice in the world.
Help us, then, to remember and to know
that you are our life today and every day;
you are the food we need, now and for ever.
