Does anyone know the prayer poem, "From God whom cometh all good and perfect gifts, with grateful hearts we thank thee for thy blessings" it ends with: "As long as thou giveth us strength, teach us to use it for thy love, honor and glory" I would like to have all the middle parts of the prayer too. I think it was a modified prayer originally from a prayer book.
It sound a bit like a Mystical, metaphysical prayer in its origin and is often allegedly attributed to U.S. President George Washington: the prayer journal of the revolutionary war.
Any help to pin this down would be greatly appreciated, my Grandfater use to recite this prayer many years ago around the dinner table before meals.

Dear Father in Heaven, from Whom cometh all good and perfect gifts, we thank Thee for this food, and for every token of Thy love. Give us grateful hearts for all Thy benefits, and fee our souls with the bread of life.

My grandfather prayed this prayer before each meal. The prayer itself is very meaningful and meaningful in every way, but it was a source of humor among the children because he said it so fast.
Our Father, from whom cometh every good and perfect gift, we thank you for this food and every token of thy love. Give us grateful hearts and feed our souls on the bread of life in Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen
