My husband is not the most religious man. I try to get him involved with faith, and the easiest way to do this is by having him say a quick prayer before dinner. He usually says the same thing every night (which is fine with me):
Dear Lord, Bless this food and the hands that prepared it. Amen.
I would like him to be a little more into it. Somedays he thanks God for more blessings than just the food, but usually this is it.
Today, we had a fight about him messing with stuff in the kitchen he shouldn’t be – moving things around on me and constantly putting things back in the fridge that I had sitting out for specific reasons. One of those foolish, hormone induced arguments.
Tonight for our dinner time prayer he went with his usual and for some reason (hormones) I said “Is that all you’ve got, really?” So, he changed it and had me laughing, because he loves me and knows I don’t mean the nastiness most of the time. His new prayer:
Dear Lord, Bless this food and the hands that prepared it. Forgive those who trespass in the kitchen. Amen.
I love that man!
INSPIRE us friends! What are some of your mealtime prayers? Do you “wing it” or do you have set prayers?
