Saying Grace

A Child’s Mealtime Blessing

God is Great, God is Good;
Let us thank Him for our food.
By His hands we all are fed,
Give us Lord our Daily Bread.

How many of us know this prayer by heart? Four simple lines taught to toddlers in Sunday School.

I was searching on Amazon and I stumbled across the print of the “Daily Bread Man Praying at Dinner Table.” This picture or a similiar one hung on the Wright’s kitchen wall for as long as I can remember. “Saying Grace” before a meal was a family tradition in the Wright’s household. I must confess I have not continued this tradition in my own household. My prayers are private conversations between myself and God. But seeing this painting encourages me to make more of an effort to continue this tradition in my own home. I may have to order the print and hang it over my table as a reminder.
