Grace before mealsKen and I have recently returned from annual leave. While in Melbourne we often ate in restaurants or at the home of friends. It is our habit to say grace before meals no matter where that is. When we are in the home of friends we naturally respect their wishes but if we are dining in a restaurant or at home we give thanks for God’s blessings and for the food we are about to enjoy. Sometimes, when we do so in restaurants we feel a little bit embarrassed but we go ahead anyway even if it is in a low voice that only those at the table can hear. May I encourage you, in this month of prayer, to say grace at meal times even when in public. If it has not been your habit to say grace I offer the following to help get you started.

Suggested graces:
Bless those that sit at this table, the food that is on it, and those who prepared it. Amen.

May God bless this food to our use and ourselves in God’s service. Amen.
