The restaurant - this is my mission space

Psalm 23: 5-6

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Each day lord I see your bounty in the food that is on offer in the markets,
each day I get to bring this to my restaurant,
to let people taste and see the goodness of the land.
Each day I am amazed at your world, Lord.
At its ability to grow new things,
to supply food we need to eat.
Each day I get to experience something new of your provision.
Lord I love this restaurant.
It is my mission space.
As I cook and serve,
as I sense your daily presence here in my work place,
I pray that people will get just a taste of the wonder I experience in you.
As they eat may they taste and see how good you are – wonderful Creator God!
