Guide To Food Prayers

I read Jonathan Acuff’s book, Stuff Christians Like a few months ago. It is an awesome book that is written with a great sense humor that I love. If you have been a Christian for a while, or even attended a church at any point, his book is definitely worth reading.

Michele and I use one quote from the book a lot when we talk about praying before eating our meals. It is a rhyme to “help” you remember whether or not you should pray before eating food while standing up.

Here is the rhyme:

If you have to stand / God won’t demand / a prayer tonight / so take a bite.”

Hopefully, this will help you when you get stuck trying to remember if prayer is required with your standing meal.
