Prayer Before Meals
Bless us, O Lord,
and these Thy gifts,
which we are about to receive
from Thy bounty through Christ, our Lord.
Prayer After Meals
We give Thee thanks for all Thy benefits,
O Almighty God,
who livest and reignest world without end.
May the souls of the faithfully departed,
through the mercy of God,
rest in peace.
The Prayer Before Meals and the Prayer After Meals (also called Grace Before Meals and Grace After Meals) are both good to remember to pray each time we eat. They help us to keep our focus on God and acknowledge that all we have has been provided to us by God.
