Prayer

Our Father,
give us today our daily bread.

Let us bless God,
whose might has created the earth and whose providence has enriched it.
God has given us the earth to cultivate,
so that we may gather its fruits to sustain life.
As we thank God for this bounty,
let us learn also, as the Gospel teaches,
to seek first God’s way of holiness:
then all we need will be given us.
Amen.
