By The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster

We need consistent ways to pray these days: ways to remember and acknowledge the presence of God in all things. This 500 year old simple, rhythmic meal time prayer is just long enough to say all we need to say, but short enough to memorize and use daily.

Let us pray:

Come, Lord Jesus, be our guest,
And may our meal by you be blessed.
—Martin Luther, 16th Century

We are innately people of song. We sing praise to God because God first sang us into being: our lives are song, and within our bones is a divine song that cannot separate us from the deep and wide love at the heart of who God is. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
