Prayer for Saturday

Sovereign God of the universe, we praise You: Your goodness sustains the world. You are the God of grace, love, and compassion, the Source of bread for all who live; for Your love is everlasting. In Your great goodness we need never lack for food; You provide food enough for all. We praise You, O God, Source of food for all who live.
For this good earth that You have entrusted to our mothers and fathers, and to us; for our deliverance from bondage; for the covenant You have sealed into our hearts; for Your life-giving love and grace; for Torah, our way of life, and for the food that sustains us day by day, we give You thanks.
For all this we thank You. Let Your praise ever be on the lips of all who live, as it is written: “When you have eaten and are satisfied, give praise to your God who has given you this good earth.” We praise You, O God, for the earth, and for its sustenance.
(From the Birkat Hamazon, a traditional Jewish blessing for after a meal.)
