This year at pre-school, Eliza has learned the classic blessing passed down from snack table to snack table throughout the ages – “God is Great.” Since she is always eager to pray that one at supper time, it has become our staple family prayer, and I have been struck at how deep and accurate a prayer it is.
“God is great.” There is none like Him, and there is nothing He cannot do. His power is immeasurable.
“God is good.” His character is love. He delights in His children and His creation. He sends rain to the fields of the wicked and the upright alike. We owe all to Him and He lavishes good things on us.
“Let us thank Him for our food.” We are about to eat a meal together. He gave us the money to buy it. He made the food grow. We will be full at the end of this time. It is only right to give thanks.
“Amen.” You can say that again.
