Meal time is a great time to introduce a short prayer of thanksgiving to your children. If they get used to giving thanks for the little things, then they will soon give thanks for all things. Here are some common child friendly before meal prayers.
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.
For food and health and happy days
receive our gratitude and praise
In serving others Lord may we
Repay our dept of love to thee.
God is great, God is good.
Let us thank him for our food.
By his hands, we are fed.
Let us thank him for our bread.
God our Father, Lord and Saviour
Thank you for your love and favor
Bless this food and drink we pray
And all who shares with us today.
