On Praying Before Dinner

The other day at a restaurant, before the family seated beside me started eating, they bowed their heads, closed their eyes, and put their hands together in prayer.

Seeing them pray before a meal reminded me of my childhood. We’d always say grace as a class before lunch.

It reminded me of home. My dad would lead a short prayer before lunch and dinner time.

During these prayers, we’d always thank God for the food in front of us and bless the people present at the table.

As a child, I took for granted the ritual of praying before meals. However, this simple practice transforms a daily routine into a moment to express gratitude and be present.
