God the Restorer and Nourisher Prayer 

                       – Br. Michael, ofm

“God shall be to you a restorer of life and a nourisher…”  – Ruth 4.15


You, O God,

Are my restorer of life

like the rain and sun are for the earth.

You are a nourisher

like the variety of foods that fill my plate.

You restore me

awakening in me all that is good and holy,

the truth of who I am.

You nourish me

with your life your life-giving word

and the Body and Blood of Christ your Son.

You restore me

to fullness filling me with hope.

You nourish me

for the journey of today and all days.

With gratitude, I give you praise

and bless your holy name!
