Eating a Meal

Prayers Before Meals

Start your meal by giving thanks to our God for your food and your family. Why do we pray before meals? Jesus prayed before meals, showing us how to give thanks for our food.

Use one or use them all! Make talking with God a habit in your household.

We pray:

Come, Lord Jesus, be our guest and let these gifts to us be blessed.

 

O give thanks to the LORD for he is good; his love endures forever (Psalm 118:1).

The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food at the proper time. You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing (Psalm 145:15-16).
