Lord God,
as we gather together in your name,
let us always remember to praise you and thank you.
We thank you for the gift of family and friends,
which brings us together.
We thank you for our faith,
which holds us together.
We thank you for our country,
in which we are free to worship you together.
We thank you for the food we are about to share,
for the surroundings where we celebrate.
We ask your blessing on all those around this table
and those who find themselves in need this day.
We ask this through Jesus Christ,
your Son, in union with the Holy Spirit.
Amen.

Mary, you are the Mother of Jesus
and my Mother,
my guide and inspiration.
Although I see your life as extraordinary,
you lived each day as an ordinary person
in your own time and place.
Help me to live my own ordinary life
according to God’s will.
Help me to see God’s will
and the connections between the ordinary and extraordinary
that happen for me each day.
Give me the commitment
to ponder and savor life as you did.
Bless me with insight to recognize
the Spirit’s action in my life
and reflect the Father’s goodness to others.
I ask this in the name of Jesus, your Son.
Amen.

From RENEW International’s resource The People’s Prayer Book, filled with over 160 prayers for every season and occasion.
