12 Prayers To Show Thanks For Your Food

Updated on November 1, 2013



Our Father in Heaven,

We give thanks for the pleasure

Of gathering together for this occasion.

We give thanks for this food

Prepared by loving hands.

We give thanks for life,

The freedom to enjoy it all

And all other blessings.

As we partake of this food,

We pray for health and strength

To carry on and try to live as You would have us.

This we ask in the name of Christ,

Our Heavenly Father.

By Harry Jewell




Gracious Lord,

We thank you,

For the food

We are about to receive,

For the nourishment

Of our bodies,

For Christ sake,



 "Give us this day our daily bread."  - Matthew 6:11



Heavenly Father,

We give thanks for all the provisons you have given us,

Bless this food,

And Bless our friends,

And family,

Who've come to dine with us today.




Dear Lord,

We have gathered together

to share

Good times,

Good conversation,

Good friends

Good food,

Which we thank you for all.



You are Mighty Lord,

And All Providing,

We thank you for this food you have given,

For nourishment

And delight,

We ask a special Blessing,

To those who have prepared this meal,

With Love and care.





Our Father,

Who art in Heaven,


From the beginning of time,

You have been our provider.

"The people asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven" Psalm 105:40

As such, we give you the most high praise for these bountiful blessings,

To nourish our bodies and our minds.


D. Alsup



Our Father who art in heaven,

This food of Thine,

You have given us,

We humbly receive.

Thank You Lord



Merciful Father in Heaven,

We praise Your Holy Name,

We Thank You for the food,

Which we are about to partake.

We ask You to fill ,

Each morsel,

With goodness for our

Minds, bodies and souls.




Our Father

We thank you,

For never a hungry day.

Give continueous special blessings to those who lovingly prepared this meal

And may we all enjoy it,

Always remembering where our blessings come from.


D. Alsup


The Less Fortunate


Dear Lord,

Thank You for this meal.

There are so many people who are hungry across the world,

But we are so blessed to be able to eat when we want

And to be able to chose what we want to eat.

Let us not forget how fortunate we are

And let us not forget the less fortunate.





"When you have eaten and you are full, then you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land which he has given you. Deuteronomy 8:11

Grace Before Meat

Bless, O Lord, these thy gifts to our use and us to thy loving service, for Christ's sake.

(And Last but not Least)

For these and all his mercies God's holy Name be praised.

Please let us know how you liked this hub. Just had to add two additional prayers that came to mind.  If you have any prayers giving thanks for your food please share them with us here. Thanks for visiting our hub.
