Prayer for Nov 5

Our table now with food is spread;

O God, who givest daily bread,

Bless these Thy gifts unto us so

The strength of body they bestow.

O feed the hungry, God of love,

Who sigh for bread to Heaven above;

Give to each land prosperity,

And bless the earth, the sky, the sea!

O may this day for Thee be spent,

And give us all a mind content;

O grant our souls the heavenly food

Which Jesus purchased with His blood. Amen.

Thomas Kingo (1634-1703)
