We are gathered here as Your family. O Lord.
As a family of faith and love.
we give You thanks.
As Your guests at the table of life,
we are grateful that You have set a place for us.
As Your children,
we strive to follow You in all we do.
As servants to Your will,
we acknowledge the gift of Your understanding and mercy.
As Your stewards,
we are filled with wonder in the presence of Your might deeds
and accept our responsibilities in Your service.
As Your heirs,
we are humbled by the bounty You have given us,
for each beat of our heart and each breath that we draw,
is ours only through Your grace.
And, as Your family, we shout Your name
and give You all glory and honor, praise and thanks.
