Prayers Before Meals
Breakfast The Noon Meal The Evening Meal
Most Holy Trinity, have mercy on us. O Lord, wash away our sins. O Master, pardon our transgressions. O Holy One, visit and heal our infirmities, for Thy Name's sake. Our Father, Who art in the heavens, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. The poor shall eat and be satisfied, and those who seek the Lord shall praise Him; their hearts shall live for ever.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
both now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Lord, have mercy. Thrice.

Christ our God, bless the food and drink of Thy servants,
for Thou art holy, always, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Prayers After Meals
Breakfast The Noon Meal The Evening Meal
Lord, have mercy. Thrice.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
both now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

It is meet and right to bless thee, the ever-blessed and all-pure Virgin and Mother of our God. More honourable than the Cherubim, and incomparably more glorious than the Seraphim, thou who in virginity didst bear God the Word, thee, true Mother of God, we magnify.

We thank Thee, O Christ our God, that Thou hast satisfied us with Thy earthly gifts; deprive us not of Thy heavenly kingdom, but as Thou camest among Thy disciples, O Saviour, and gavest them peace, come to us and save us. God is with us by His grace and love for man, always, now and ever, and the ages of ages. Amen.
