The is the the traditional family prayer we have been doing over the years, but of late ,I have been hearing all manner of prayers, Some will bind demons,poison, some will offer long long prayers.

The biblical and mature prayer over food is thanksgiving.It is an expression of faith which indirectly says "Lord i recognise this food came from you and I thank you for it" That is how to sanctify food. All the places Jesus prayed over food he never said " Father bless and sanctify this food" but rather he gave thanks.

When he fed thousands even though the food was small but when he gave thanks ,God's pressence came on it.

Matthew 15:36
And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.


At the communion table, he did thesame thing.

Matthew 26:27
And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;


1 Tim. 4:3-4
Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. [4] For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:


Whatever you recieve with thanksgiving is sanctified.

^^^^ Geeez, enough with the Bible quoting already. YOU ALWAYS quote the Bible whenever you leave a comment on these boards.


Random normal person - Hey there, Joagbaje. Nice day, isn't it?

Joagbaje - OT, Genesis chapter 1234, verse 56789
"Bla bla, yada yada, Bible says [insert wonderful feat] Nomnommom".

Grace Before and After Meals

Before: Bless us, O Lord! and these Thy gifts, which we are about to receive from Thy bounty, through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

After: We give Thee thanks for all Thy benefits, O Almighty God, who livest and reignest world without end. Amen.
