Our Father and gracious God, we look to You now in the great name of Jesus Christ our Lord. We know that apart from Him, we could not even approach You, still less celebrate in Your presence. We are grateful for forgiveness of sins, and we are grateful for the resultant fellowship around this table. Father, we pray for the little ones gathered here with us, that You would impress upon them what it is like to grow up in harmony with You and with Your people, and I pray that You would bless them with understanding the antithesis, even though they never will spend any time in the world allied with it. We rejoice in this Sabbath meal, in Jesus’ name, and amen.
