Earlier, I wrote a post about the benefits of praying aloud, specifically when gathered with Christians before eating.

Recently, Fool’s Gold has written an excellent question: Should we pray before snacks as well? I want to also pose the question: what is the purpose of specifically praying before we eat fulfilling?

In other words, what’s so special about the time before eating that we must be praying? Where is the Biblical command for us to do so?
