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.
