Meal Time Prayers
A Simple Thanks~
Lord and Lady, watch over us,
and bless us as we eat.
Bless this food, this bounty of earth,
we thank you, so mote it be.
A Prayer to the Earth~
Corn and grain, meat and milk,
upon my table before me.
Gifts of life, bringing sustenance and strength,
I am grateful for all I have.
Hail! Hail! The hunt has ended,
and meat is on the table!
We honor the deer who feeds us tonight,
may his spirit live within us!
Invitation to the Gods~
I set a place at my table for the gods,
and ask them to join me here tonight.
My home is always open to you,
and my heart is open as well.
In ancient Rome, it was common to leave a bit of your food on the altar for your household deities. If you would like to do this at your meal, you could use the following prayer:
This meal is the work of many hands,
and I offer you a share.
Holy ones, accept my gift,
and upon my hearth, leave your blessings.
Blessed Be our Hearth and Home,
and our Family, wherever we Roam
Blessed Be this Food, our Feast
May we always Dwell in Love and Peace
Another Mealtime Prayer~
We give thanks to all who have given of themselves
So that we may share this meal with those we love.
