Thank you, heavenly Father, for giving us people on whom we can depend, knowing that we will receive what we need when we ask. You surround us daily with people who care for and guide us. Bless them as they work at their tables, giving us what is necessary. We give you thanks that you give us what we ask at your table so that we may know your grace and celebrate life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
This prayer, written by Eleanor B. Johnson, is taken from a reflection “Pharmaceutical Tables” that appeared in At the Table: A Collection of Creative Works, published by Women of the ELCA upon the 10th anniversary of the organization (1998).
