Do U Pray Before Eating?

Remember when u were younger and U would always say your prayers before eating?? Do U still practice that or is it History?? Or did U ever practice it??

~~As for moi, I used to all the time.I used to pray to God, Mary Magdalene, Peter, etc before eating when younger. ha-ha~~Crazy dayz. I have not done it for years.I need to start that old African tradition again.

The prayer went something like this

"God thank U for this food. Please let it nourish my body in Jesus Name.God,Mary,Joseph, etc come and join me. Amen" aww,I miss childhood.

ITS NOT OFTEN, I THINK I NEED TO CHANGE, ITS A GOOD THING TO DO. I REMEMBER MY OLD SCHOOL SONG ' SOME HAVE FOOD BUT CAN NOT EAT, SOME CAN EAT BUT HAVE NO FOOD.', GOD I BLESS U FOR ALL I'VE EATEN TODAY.

It's a Good thing to do. I often forget though but I encourage my family members to do it before and after eating.

Not always, but i do most of the time, but always thankful to God after every meal and at the same time asking him to provide for those that have not taken any, and the one i just finished should not be my last. i think that's enough

Can't recall the last time I said the ' Bless Us Oh Lord, ' Probably over a decade ago in secondary school. Also can't stand dinning with those die hard prayer warriors who go on and on with the grace, not minding if hunger iss about to send someone to the great beyond

Saying "grace" before a meal can be a very good habit, not childish or hypocritical in the least. I'm ashamed to say it's been a while, but it's something that should be part of every believer. Thanking God for the little things always opens up the way for great ones.

Opediileke or whatever you call yourself, who told you that praying b4 eating is hypocritical?

Pls, try and change your orientation !

Praying before a meal is like a reflex to me, its inborn.

It is too risky not to pray before eating with all these new germs and viruses in town plus demons and co. It is also important to thank God, too many people are moving about hungry.
