  • We do but not every time we eat. Mainly because bad habits are hard to break and good habits are hard to form. We make an effort but a lot of times in the chaos of our day, we forget.

  • we pray before dinner on holidays when all of them family is around. But not before every meal. I know we should pray before every meal it makes you realize how grateful you need to be for actually having food to eat. which many people don't

  • i must admit i use to pray before every meal but catch myself forgetting too often these days. it's usually a quick prayer of thanks for the food and those who prepared it and a blessing for it to nurish my body to His service. i pray on my way to school(work..i'm a teacher) everyday because it's peaceful just me and the silence and i pray each night and find myself tossing and turning until i remember to say my prayers at night.

  • used too, but i never think about it any more. But it hink as long as you thank God for your blessings your OK. Thats the main point i believe is to bless that food because it is a blessing to your body and that you hve food to eat =)

  • I pray over my food at every meal. We do not now what impurities are in it. So I pray over it asking God to make it pure if it is not and to thank him for providing for us another day.

  • Yes I do pray before every meal. why? Because I want to thank GOd for giving me another meal some people don't have anything. I thank God for the meal
