A Prayer for Meals

God, as I take this time to stop and eat, may I be ever mindful that You created this desire and need within me. You created my body with not only the requirement for nourishment and substance, but with a want and an enjoyment of food as well. That didn’t have to be. You could have created a process similar to putting gas in an automobile - an impersonal replenishment of fuel for the body.

In fact, we’d probably be better off if You had. But as in all areas of our lives, You’ve given us free will - free choice of how to satisfy our desires. May we, in this, as in all areas of our lives, seek Your Divine wisdom to determine what is “best” for us.

But again, thank You that food tastes good!
