Before each meal, William and Elizabeth Pearl would recite the following grace. Their children and grandchildren continued the tradition saying this prayer whenever they gathered for a meal. It bound us together and defined us as family as we proclaimed our gratitude for our blessings.
The Family Prayer is as follows:
We thank thee, Father, wise and good, for home and friends and daily food. Bless to our use this food we take, and save us all for Jesus’ sake. Amen
