LUNCH (Terce)



God of all nations,
through the lives and witness of the saints and martyrs of Asia,
your name is honoured today
from Siberia to Sri Lanka and from Turkey to Japan;
from the seed of faith sown,
let your church grow and prosper
to the glory of your name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Our Father,
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.
