Yes, I do pray before bed. I thank God for being alive and for watching over my kids and protecting them and keeping them safe. I don't pray before I eat though but I prolly should start doing that.

Yes I do pray before I eat, im blessed that God has allowed my family and I to be blessed with food on our table every night. There are so many people and families without food to eat. Im very thankful. How about you? God Bless

We always say the blessing before we eat supper. We didnt always used to but we do now and it's very important, I think.

I should be more thankful and grateful because the only time I pray before I eat is with family on thanksgiving.

No I don't pray before I eat. Most of the time I eat in a hurry and I know that is not a good reason.

I think its good to thank God and to reflect a little on the food we are about to eat before digging in. It does not have to be lengthy or elaborate, something that can be easily done in public/ private for both one's own sense of duty and for the respect to food itself.

No, I don't pray before I eat. I would love to pray, but I dont know what really should I pray for? maybe I should pray to God that I always get to eat good food the rest of my life and that I should always be able to digest it too. :-)

I don't feel the need to pray at dinner, not because I'm not religous, I'm just always thankful for what I have, and say little prayers on my own terms and when it seems appropriate.

Yes I do. You should always bless you food before eating because we really don't know what is in that food.
