Table Prayer for the Christmas Season

A Christmas get together among friends in Naples, California.

The Christmas season is a time for family and friends to get together. A time for joy, reflection, love and food. Over the years we have shared poems, carols, songs and memories. This Christmas we give thanks at the dinner table.

Table Prayer for the Christmas Season


O come, let us adore him!
O come, let us adore him!

May the meal shared at this table
provide the strength to follow your way
as we celebrate your birth,
    O Christ.

O come, let us adore him!

May the blessing of food
be nourishment to proclaim glad tidings
as we hear the voice of the herald angels.

O come, let us adore him!

May these Christmas days of grace
let your love shine forth in the world
as we behold your humble birth.

O come, let us adore him!

Let us adore him, Christ the Lord!
May every meal and every life be blessed
during this joyful Christmas season.

Amen
