A Blessing over Wine
Blessed are you, O Lord our God, Ruler of the universe. You create the fruit of the vine; and you refresh us with the cup of salvation in the Blood of your Son Jesus Christ. May the time come quickly when we can share that cup again, even as you are with us now in our very thirst for you. Glory to you for ever and ever. Amen.
A Blessing over Bread
Blessed are you, O Lord our God, King of the universe. You bring forth bread from the earth; and on this night you have given us the bread of life in the Body of your Son Jesus Christ. As grain scattered upon the earth is gathered into one loaf, so gather your Church in every place into the kingdom of your Son. To you be glory and power for ever and ever. Amen.
A Blessing over Other Foods
Blessed are you, O Lord our God, King of the universe. You have blessed the earth to bring forth food to satisfy our hunger. Let this food strengthen us in the fast that is before us, that following our Savior in the way of the cross, we may come to the joy of his resurrection. For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory, now and for ever. Amen.
O God of the crucified and risen One, from whom no trial or trouble can separate us: you feed us with your Word and sooth us with your Spirit, closer to us than breath itself. Make us glad this night for the life of your servant Jesus; make us servants of all for the sake of Jesus; who for our sake gave his life for the salvation of all. In the name of Jesus, your Son, our Lord. Amen.
