For Special Occasions

"I'm not sure where this prayer originated, but my father always said it for special occasions," relates Pat Johnson of Fruita, Colorado.

Heavenly Father, once more do we offer up to Thee the gratitude of our hearts for all these earthly blessings. Bless this food to its intended use, pardon and forgive us of our sins. Finally, when Thou art done with us, You up in Heaven receive us into Thy eternal and everlasting kingdom. In Jesus' name, Amen.
