How do you pray at mealtime? I grew up with this prayer;
God is good,
God is great,
And we thank Him for our food.
My boys have learned a couple from preschool this year.
Thank you for the world so sweet,
Thank you for the food we eat.
Thank you for the birds that sing,
Thank you God for everything.
Come Lord Jesus be our guest
And to us these gifts be blessed.
Do you ever forget to pray at mealtimes? I know we do! Usually we forget at breakfast in the morning when we are still too sleepy to remember. But it's important to pray and give thanks for everything! We are blessed with so much food that we sometimes take for granted that it is a gift from God.
God blessed the farmers with a bountiful harvest. God blessed your Mom and Dad with a job that provided the money to buy your groceries. Even a meal as simple as your breakfast cereal is a blessing. Let's try to remember to thank God for every meal!
Dear God, Thanks for reminding us that every meal is a gift. Thank you for blessing all the people it took to bring to our table today. Amen.
