A simple prayer of grace expresses the greatness and goodness of our Lord, yet don’t be misled by simplicity.
“God is Great, God is Good
Let us thank him for our food.
By his hand we all are fed;
Give us Lord our daily bread.”
A prayer of grace traditionally taught to children, and yet what seems like such a simple prayer, praises the indescribable and infinite depths of God.
God is Great describes ~ His greatness beyond our comprehension.
God is Good describes ~ His nearness to us.
By his hand we all are fed; He meets all our needs.
Give us Lord our daily bread; He provides our spiritual food.
He alone is Good. (Mathew 19:17) (Psalm 100:5)
Blessed Father, you are not impressed by our high thinking, our lofty words. What matters most to you is the authenticity of our childlike faith. What matters most to you is the thankfulness in our remembrance. ~ Amen :Y
