Okay,so in the last two days we have seen three families praying before they eat in public. ( yes! We eat out a lot. Get over it. We do daycare in our home and need to get out or we would crazy)

Anyways we never see that! Do you? Are you a family that says prayer in public? DH joked that the end is near. We also had some Jehovahs Witnesses knock on our door a couple days ago.as well.

We say a prayer in public just as we do at home. It's how I was raised.

Yes we do.  My kids will ask who can say the prayer.  It is part of who we are as individuals and as a family.

We always pray over our food. In public or at home. It's not hurting anyone physically, and helping my family spiritually. :)

No, but we aren't religious at all, we don't pray. People can do what they want, though we had one family at the table next to ours that was praying very loudly, and asked us not to drink alcoholic beverages in front of their children. Do what you believe and want, but don't expect others to follow those same beliefs.
