Blessing of self: I affirm myself for…
Blessing of the lunch
Bless Lord those that have labored in the fields for this food
Bless those who have provided for me
Bless those who gather
Bless the breaking of the bread
Christ beside me
Christ behind me
Christ around me
Christ at the table
This is a Celtic pattern of midday prayer.
Try it. Blessings
