Prayer at the Table

Great Big Creator God
Baker of loaves of bread
Maker of cups of wine
Setter of tables for feasts
Choose to come to our little table
and set a meal here for us

Here with grain that comes from the ground
and grape that is grown on the vine
here among us of all ages who gather
and in the middle of your vast and wild creation
may you come to a meal with us

And open our eyes
to the great story
of your love for creation
and your friendship through Jesus
of the birds of the air
and the feast for the world
of the lily of the valley
and the bread for all people
of the rainbow of hope
and the wine of new promise
of the wilderness of wandering
and the journey to the table
of the water that cleanses
and the community of faith
of the trees that hide sinners
and the banquet in their honour
of the stones that cry out
and the voices that proclaim grace
of the grain that is buried
and the bread that is broken
of the seed that is sown
and the wine that is shared
of the cedars that sing
and the faith that is lived
of the rock that is rolled
and the truth that is set free

Here with grain that comes from the ground
and grape that is grown on the vine
here among us of all ages who gather
and in the middle of your vast and wild creation
may you choose to come to a meal with us

So be it,
Amen.
