the prayer I said for the first 19 years of my life (before I moved out) was "thank you God for this good food, Amen"

if we REALLY wanted to make my mom's blood boil, we left out the word "good"

there were a few occasions where she said "Fine! No prayer today! God doesn't appreciate how you act!" lol


my son says "Thank you God for the (fill in whatever we are eating or sometimes something made up), Amen" we're not very formal with it....

Most recent pic I have of DD praying :)
She prays with me a few times a day.
She blesses before she eats and thanks God after.
Same before she goes to sleep and when she wakes.

Now, before I run to play, Let me not forget to pray To God who kept me through the night And waked me with the morning light. Help me, Lord, to love thee more Than I ever loved before, In my work and in my play Be thou with me through the day.Amen

My children know this by heart I got it off the internet 6 yrs ago

My children have their own prayers. We aren't Christian, and not all four of our kids pray, our daughter is very interested in learning my religion. Other than that, our children can do what they please, religion is their choice.

am I the only one who found this prayer slightly unnerving as a child?:


Now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray the Lord my soul to Keep.

And if I die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.
 


I used to not want to say it for fear of jynxing myself.

My children know their Jewish prayers. They say the appropriate blessing for each type of food before eating, the Grace After Meals and they say the morning prayer of thanks and their nighttime prayer.
They go to a yeshivah (religious Jewish school) where they say morning prayers.

God is great and God is Good, And we thank God for our food; By God's hand we must be fed, Give us Lord, our daily bread. Amen.

My mom actually discouraged me from saying that, growing up. Her reasoning was because I had already asked God to save me, I had accepted Him (etc etc) and there wasn't any question of where I'd go if I was to die. So the prayer, I guess, was unnecessary to her.

Looking back, I never understood, but now I get what she was saying lol

dh's grandma sent our son a pillow that has a creepy child voice saying that prayer. It "accidentally got wet" and doesn't work. It was creepy.

Your dd is adorable. At what age do Muslim children start praying 5 times daily?
