Prayers before dinner   Leave a comment

Most profound Grace before dinner prayers

Omnipotens Deus, clementissime Pater, omnis boni fons, in donis tuis gaudentes, nomen tuum magnificamus, per Jesum Christum, Dominum nostrum. Amen.

Most Contemporary?

Sing this one to the tune of the Addams Family theme song:

Do-do-do-do (snap fingers twice), do-do-do-do (snap, snap)
Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do (snap, snap)
We thank You for our food, Lord,
And all the things You do, Lord.
We thank You for our food, Lord, and all our family.
Do-do-do-do (snap, snap), do do do do (snap, snap)
Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do — A-MEN!

Shortest before dinner prayer

Ta, Pa. Amen.

Really old one

Some have meat and cannot eat;
Some cannot eat that want it:
But we have meat and we can eat
Sae let the Lord be thankit!

Old Irish.

God in our waking, God in our speaking;
God in our cooking, God in our eating;
God in our playing, God in our digesting;
God in our working, God in our Resting

Childrens prayer

Rub a dub dub; thanks for the grub; yeaaa God!

A sung grace before dinner

Glory to the Lord we sing
All creation praise God’s name
Raise your voices in thanksgiving

This would mine. Not so profound, but to the point.

For what we are about to receive, may the Lord make us truly thankful. Amen

Another sung grace before meals

Be present at our table, Lord
Be here and everywhere adored
Thy mercies bless and grant that we
May strengthened for thy service be

It seems like as long as our prayers are not anouncements, God would hear us. Got any prayers for grace before meals you can share?
