Thanks and Gratitude
Bismillah Al-Rahman Al-Raheem
In the name of God the most Mericful the Beneficent.
Oh Nourisher and Provider of all things.
We offer our thanks and gratitude for this food,
and for those who prepared it.
In a world where so many are hungry,
may we eat this food with humble hearts.
We offer our thanks and gratitude for each member of our community
and the opportunity that we all have to come together to do good.
Dear God, may you bless our efforts and help us sit present with one
another, mindful of our purpose.
Bismillahi’wa’ ala Barakatillah
In the name of God and with the blessings of God, Let us begin.
