Peanut Butter Cracker Blessing

One of the noisykids wrote this prayer:

All-powerful Father, bless these peanut butter crackers,
and make of them good food for Your humble sons.
Let the inability of these crackers to fill one remind
us of the insufficiency of earthly pleasures to slake
our thirst for joy. Let the salty-to-the-point-of-pain
flavor of these crackers remind us of the inevitable sorrow
mixed into our earthly life. Let the similarity of these
crackers to the rocks Satan mentioned in the temptation
not break our teeth. We ask this through Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with You in the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.

I will publish more from the noisykids in the future.

I love that prayer!!!

Much better then my 3 year old! She has a Bible book that tells the story of the annunciation and nativity. It also covers King Herod. W have not yet explained that King Herod did not make it to Heaven.
Yesterday evening we were praying over our dinner and she says, " Saint Jude, pray for us, Saint Joachim pray for us, King Herod...." she stops short of the pray for us. As I turn my head trying to hold in the hysterical laughter my husband tries to explain to her how King Herod is not a person we ask to pray for us. She says, " But God told King Herod its ok" No no no. It was not ok. I think she ended up getting the point!!

Prayer to Our Lady of the Mysterious Decapitation

Mary my mother, take my hand today, and all days.
Lead me away from all occasions of sin.
Guide me in fulfilling your last words in the Gospel,
"Do whatever He tells you."
