Lord, I thank you for providing food for me and my family. We have not lacked food and for that, I am grateful and praise your holy name.

Just like you give food to the birds of the air and the animals of the earth, you have given us food in abundance. 

I ask you to bless the food that we eat each day and may it nourish our bodies.

Bless the person who prepared this food before us and for taking their time to make a delicious meal.

Thank you for blessing us with different types of foods that give various vitamins and minerals to our bodies (Genesis 9:3).

Thank you for giving us food to nourish our bodies and for enjoyment.

Help me to never complain about the food but to receive it with thanksgiving knowing it is from you.

Let me be content with the food you have provided for my family each day. The Israelites complained about the manna you gave them to their detriment (Numbers 11:6).

Prayer for Those Who Lack Food

Lord, you are the God who watches over the birds of the air and the grass in the field.

You have said that we are more important than they are and that we should not worry over what we will eat (Luke 12:22).

I, therefore, ask that you provide food for all those who have none. 

If you feed the birds of the air, you can feed those who have no food.

You provided manna to the Israelites in the desert and you have the power to provide for those who lack food today.

I also pray that when they get food to eat, keep them full for longer until they can get their next meal.

Prayer in the Remembrance of the Last Supper

Prayer in the Remembrance of the Last Supper

Lord, I praise you for loving the world so much that you sent Jesus to die for our sins.

Today we are free because Jesus gave of himself as a sacrifice for our sins.

Whoever he sets free is free indeed. 

Your word says that the cup of thanksgiving is a participation in the blood of Christ and the bread participation in the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 10:16).

As we participate in the body and blood of Christ, may we remember that we are under the new covenant sealed by the blood of Jesus. 

When we break bread together as it represents the body of Christ, remind us that when we eat of it, we will never hunger.

As we drink of the cup that represents the blood of Christ, remind us that we will never thirst again (John 6:35).

Help us prepare our hearts and minds to partake of the body and blood of Christ in remembrance of the last supper.

May your goodness lead us into repentance for our sins and purify our hearts before we partake of holy communion.

As we draw near to you, may you draw near to us as you promised us in your word in James 4:8.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Send food supplies to all those in the mission field in different countries of the world.

They need the food for strength so that they may preach your word without fainting or growing weary.

Grant them the strength they need to work tirelessly, knowing that their reward comes from you.

Help them work as if they are working for you and not man (Colossians 3:23). You are the one who sees the work they do and rewards them.
