We give you thanks, heavenly Father,
for creating all things by your limitless power,
governing all things by your inexpressible wisdom,
and feeding and prospering all things by your unfailing goodness.
Let us, your children,
at last drink the cup of everlasting life
which you have promised and prepared for all who love you,
with your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
