Saying Grace

Whether it's Christmas dinner, Easter supper or just Friday night at the kitchen table, beginning a meal with a brief prayer is a common ritual in Christian households. It may be reserved for special occasions or be a daily occurrence. It may even be a silent pause to express unspoken gratitude. Traditionally, saying grace was a way to reaffirm thanks to God for the day's bounty and for man's dominion over the animals. A modern interpretation of the prayer would be that it's an affirmation of faith, an expression of gratitude to God and recognition of the cycle of life.
