“Give us this day our daily bread.”

Read Luther’s explanation of this petition (a little more there than I touch upon in the video).


Come Lord Jesus be our guest.

Let this food (or these gifts) to us be blessed.

Come Lord Jesus you are our bread.

May all the world be clothed and fed. Amen.

This is an old German Table prayer with an extra verse that I received a number of years ago from Lutheran World Relief. I went to their site to check the wording and was blessed with this video.  See how our sharing, our generosity makes God’s good changes happen!


Psalm 136:1  “O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good: For His steadfast love endures forever.”
