Prayers to Use Before Meals

Here are some suggestions for mealtime prayers:

Prayer Before Meals (younger children)

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

Prayer Before Meals (older children)

For food in a world where many walk in hunger;
For faith in a world where many walk in fear;
For friends in a world where many walk alone;
We give you thanks, O Lord.
