Parish Nurse Notes…Mealtime Blessings

Happy June!

I came across an article on Mealtime Blessings and wanted to share a simple prayer for families with younger children. Why is it important? For children, mastering the repetition both grows their sense of confidence and reinforces the meaning of the words they say. For adults, the prayers are simple reminders of deeper truths. As you ask God to bless your meals with your children, we pray you find nourishment for both body and spirit.

As we sit down to our meal,

Let us take a moment to kneel. 

Thank God for fingers and toes,

For my mouth and my nose.

Thank you, God, for I am blessed

It is God I love the best!


In His healing love, Sarah.
