Most wonderful Lord, we celebrate many different milestones, such as birthdays, marriages and births. So, as we rejoice, we reflect on You and the blessings of the food You provide for us. So, right now, we praise you as we celebrate this day. Father, You are the bread of life and whoever comes to You will never go hungry or thirsty. So, as we join together during this special occasion, we ask that as we come to You, we shall never be hungry or thirsty, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Luke 3:11
Dear Father, Your Word says that, He who has two tunics, let him give to him who has none; and he who has food, let him do likewise. We offer this special meal prayer, as we gather for the blessings of this special occasion (anniversary, special birth, christening etc). We ask that You Lord, will bless the food as we are about to eat, but help us to also reflect and think of those who do not have. Just as Your Word says; he who has food, let him give to him who has none. Lord let the food do good to our bodies, but also teach us to give with a willing heart, this we ask, Amen.
