Publicly giving thanks

And when he had said these things, he took bread, and giving thanks to God in the presence of all he broke it and began to eat. (Acts 27:35 ESV)

Сказав это и взяв хлеб, он возблагодарил Бога перед всеми и, разломив, начал есть. (Деяния 27:35 Russian)

O LORD God, our dear Father in heaven ~ Thank you for the gift of life that we received in our mother’s womb along with sufficient instructions to enable us to cry out for sustenance from the first day of our birth. Encourage faithful believers in Christ to follow the good example of our brother Paul in publicly giving you thanks for food we eat, so that observers will be encouraged in their own faith. Forgive us for the times when we have failed to publicly own up to our faith and trust in Christ our Lord. We bring this prayer into your divine presence according to the good will of Jesus our Lord. Amen.
