These meal blessings are traditional Christian dinner prayers for saying grace and blessing the food at mealtimes. The prayers are short and simple, great for holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas, or any dinner gathering.

Bless us, Oh Lord

Bless us, oh Lord,
and these thy gifts
which we are about to receive
from thy bounty,
through Christ, our Lord.
Amen.

--Traditional

We Give Our Thanks

For food that stays our hunger,
For rest that brings us ease,
For homes where memories linger,
We give our thanks for these.

--Traditional

Truly Thankful

Lord, make us truly thankful for
these and all other blessings.
I ask this in Jesus Christ's name,
Amen.

--Traditional
