A Mealtime Prayer

Description

If you don’t have a habit of regularly communicating with God in prayer—whether at meals or at other times—why not try it? Your prayers can become a great source of encouragement in your relationship with God.

Scripture Reading — Colossians 3:15-17

Whatever you do … do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17

Many Christians value a tradition of mealtime prayer. A godly farmer once explained to me why such prayer is important to him. “My prayer before the meal is something that really sets me apart from my animals that I feed daily,” he said. Of all earth’s creatures, only human beings can consciously and willfully praise their Creator.

In a mealtime prayer we express our gratitude to God for our food and for all good things in our lives. We thank God for everyone who helped provide and prepare the meal—from the farmer who raised the crops to those who prepared the food. We pray for our loved ones who cannot join us at the table but who are close to our hearts. We also ask for God’s blessing on our mealtime fellowship.

If you don’t have a habit of regularly communicating with God in prayer—whether at meals or at other times—why not try it? Your prayers can become a great source of encouragement in your relationship with God.

Prayer

Our heavenly Father, you give us the great privilege of fellowshipping with you in prayer. Fill our hearts with praise and thanksgiving to you! Amen.
