HILARIOUS VIDEO: Just how long should prayer for a meal last?

Published

on

BY GRACE

Much as it is important to say the Grace before a meal, some people sometimes get carried away and go a little too far in their communication with the Almighty.

There have been cases of people veering off course and, besides giving thanks for the meal, they, in the same breath, pray for governments, political campaigns and even Safari rallies.

Unknown to them, some of the partakers at the same table may be suffering in silence, especially if they haven’t had anything to eat the whole day. But not so for the young man in the video below:

Please read this guide to brief prayers recommended before or after a meal:

  • Ecumenical – “We give You thanks for food and drink and all that You provide: flowers, mountains, stars above, family by our side. Grant that we might hear Your voice and always be our Guide; From now until the end of time may we, in You, abide. Amen”
  • Catholic (before eating) – “Bless us, O Lord, and these, Thy gifts, which we are about to receive from Thy bounty. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.” (Preceded and followed by the Sign of the Cross.)
  • Catholic (after eating) – “We give Thee thanks, Almighty God, for all thy benefits, Who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.” (Preceded and followed by the Sign of the Cross.)
  • Eastern Orthodox (before eating) – “O Christ God, bless the food and drink of Thy servants, for holy art Thou, always, now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.” (The one saying the prayer may make the Sign of the Cross over the food with his right hand).
  • Eastern Orthodox (after eating) – After the meal, all stand and sing: We thank Thee, O Christ our God, that Thou hast satisfied us with Thine earthly gifts; deprive us not of Thy Heavenly Kingdom, but as Thou camest among Thy disciples, O Saviour, and gavest them peace, come unto us and save us.[3] There are also seasonal hymns which are sung during the various Great Feasts. At Easter, it is customary to sing the Paschal troparion.
  • Anglican Bless, O Father, Thy gifts to our use and us to Thy service; for Christ’s sake. Amen.
  • Lutheran (The common table prayer) (before eating) Come, Lord Jesus, be our Guest, and let Thy/these gifts to us be blessed. Amen.
  • Lutheran (The common table prayer) (after eating) O give thanks unto/to the Lord, for He is good, for His mercy/love endureth/endures forever. Amen.
  • Methodist/Wesleyan (Grace Before Meat) Be present at our table Lord. Be here and everywhere adored. These mercies bless and grant that we may feast in fellowship with Thee. Amen.[4]
  • Methodist/Wesleyan (Grace After Meat) We thank thee, Lord, for this our food, But more because of Jesus’ blood. Let manna to our souls be given, The Bread of Life, sent down from heaven. Amen.[4]
  • Scots (The Selkirk Grace). Some hae meat and canna eat, And some wad eat that want it; But we hae meat, and we can eat, Sae let the Lord be thankit.
