Idea Day: Mealtime Prayers

There's always the "Lutheran Prayer" of Come Lord Jesus - in whatever version you say it.  There is also a singable version available in the Lutheran Service Book.  But today we thought we'd share a few other mealtime prayers that our families do.

We thank the Lord for meat and drink, through Jesus Christ.  Amen

Oh Give Thanks unto the Lord, for he is good and his mercy endures forever.

God is great, God is good, let us thank him for this food.  By his hands we are all fed, give us Oh Lord our daily bread. 

Mealtime prayers that are in the small catechism like this one:  The eyes of all wait upon Thee, O Lord; and Thou givest them their meat in due season; Thou openest Thine hand, and satisfiest teh desire of every living thing.

We thank you God for the world so sweet, We thank you for the food we eat, We thank you for the birds that sing, We thank you God for everything.

Our hands we fold, our heads we bow.  For food and drink we thank God now.  

God our Father, God our Father
We thank you, We thank you
For our many blessings, For our many blessings
Amen, Amen
(sun to the tune of Where is Thumbkin)

Laura's family likes to take turns saying the prayers including thanks, prayer requests, and thanks for the food.

Do you have a special prayer not included in this list?  We'd love to hear it!
