Pay attention

God, may we not be so concerned with our own needs that we fail to see the needs of others—in our neighborhood, in our church, in our school, even in our family. Thank you for fulfilling our needs with this food. Amen.

Singing Grace

Can be sung to the tune of "Twinkle, twinkle little star"

God of love and God of grace,
now we come to you in praise
thanking you for all you give:
family, friends, and food to live.
Bless this meal and help us be
folks who serve you faithfully.
