As we gather together as family and friends we invite you once again into our lives.
May the hope of your resurrection colour our days.
May the promise of your spirit working in us light up our lives.
May the love you revealed to us shape our giving.
May the truth in your word guide our journeys,
And may the joy of your kingdom fill our homes.
As we gather together underneath the banner of your life,
We thank you for all the wonderful food that we can now enjoy,
And celebrate your glorious resurrection.
Thank you Lord.
