Fun Kids' Prayer
"Our family's favorite grace started with my 3-year-old nephew, Jaret, who recited it at Thanksgiving dinner," says Susan Ellis of Rittman, Ohio. "Now my son, Justin, is 3, and he uses this prayer at every meal." Hands, hands, hands, thank You, God, for hands (shake your hands in the air). Food, food, food, thank You, God, for food (point to the food on the table). Friends, friends, friends, thank You, God, for friends (everyone at the table holds hands). Amen.
"My wonderful Irish father had his own special grace that he used during the Depression years," writes Jean Horn of Toronto, Ontario. Lord, we thank You for the next meal, because we're sure of this one!
