Father in Heaven,
Thank you for the opportunity to gather among your magnificently beautiful creations to share our lives and love for each other.
Please bless the food you have provided for us and bless those who have prepared it for us.
Father, bless the time we spend together and encourage all of us to make the most of this time.
Bless those who are unable to attend this picnic, heal those who are too ill to be here and keep all of us healthy, especially those who will participate in the sports and games.
Lord, we ask all of this in the name of your Son, Jesus.
Father in Heaven, we thank you for yet another opportunity to meet and share our friendship and love for one another. We thank you for all your creations and ask that we may learn from them the many lessons of life such as showing unconditional love for one another.
Please bless those classmates, teachers and friends that are unable to meet with us today and provide comfort and healing for those who are ill. We also ask for travel mercies for those who will be traveling this coming week.
Please bless the food you have provided for us and all those who prepare and serve it to us.
Please also bless our country and all that makes it a wonderful place to live.
We ask this of You in the name of your Son, Jesus.
