Overview

Unending Grace: Mealtime Prayers for Every Day of the Year is a family-oriented book that will get everyone in the habit of thanking God every day, not only for their food but also for life, family, God's love, the wonders of creation, and every good gift God gives. This collection of 372 table graces includes prayers for special occasions and holidays. Quite a few of the graces are only three or four lines. Several are original paraphrases of Psalms, or are based on other Scripture verses. Many are short poems, with several having suggested song tunes to which the prayers can be sung. All are written in language that even young children can understand, so they are perfect for parents who are searching for simple yet effective ways to instill in their children a faith in God and compassion for others. Using Unending Grace will benefit your life in many ways. These prayers will: • Reinforce the abundance of God's blessings. • Encourage helping those in need. • Arouse a deeper awareness of the wonders of nature. • Awaken an appreciation of the role other people play in bringing food to your table. • Cultivate thankfulness for what you already have and less envy of what others have.• Kindle a more positive outlook on life. Families will love the variety of these short but beautiful prayers. When you say the same grace each night it can get boring and become a meaningless ritual. Using a different prayer each night from Unending Grace will make mealtime prayers a time to truly give thanks for all of God's blessings. Yet these prayers go beyond giving thanks to God. They remind the user of how God wants us to live. They awaken a deeper awareness of the natural world in which we live which, in turn, will awaken a desire for more environmental concern. And they encourage people to reach out to others in need. Parents who want to reinforce family values will find Give Thanks a helpful resource as the prayers encourage kindness, respect, and thoughtfulness for other family members and for all people in the world. Filled with almost 50 Scripture references, and written in child-friendly language, this is a book to be used every day as a daily reminder of God's unending grace.
