Meal Prayers and Blessings - Saying Grace


The meal prayer or blessing - saying grace - is a way to show appreciation for the bounty of nature, and all our daily gifts of grace. Here are a few little interfaith prayers to meditate upon and enjoy.

Meal time blessings
We ask and pray
To be with us
All through the day.

***

Thank you for our food, we pray
May we in turn
Do good today.

***

Lord, we thank you for this meal
For all the blessings you impart
For our family, for our friends
And for living in our heart.

***

May we receive
Your blessing today
And appreciate
What comes our way.

***

Lord, for this food
And all we need
We give thanks
For what we receive.

***

As a follow up activity after reading these little meal blessings with your children, have them draw pictures to illustrate each prayer, and collate the pages into a little prayer book for them.

I invite you to join me in a daily group cyber meditation for personal and planetary peace. Click the article here to read about it.
