Our Morning Offering – 17 November – At Your Table, Lord

Our Morning Offering – 17 November – The Third World Day of Prayer for the Poor and the Thirty Third Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

At Your Table, Lord
Cafod Prayer for the World Day of the Poor

Bountiful God,
When we eat this Bread,
and drink this Cup,
remind us that it is at Your table
that we do it,

a table weighed down with good things,
a table full to overflowing.

Remind us that we have neither earned,
nor deserve,
what You freely give.

For it is to the starving
that You bring satisfaction,
whereas the full, You send away empty.

Help us to respond to Your invitation
by sharing what we have received,
by breaking the body and blood of creation
with love and reverence
and by adjusting our own wants,
so that no-one is turned away.
Amen
