Does your family have a common prayer they said before dinner together?praying at dinner table

For as long as I can remember, our family has said this prayer before dinner:

Come, Lord Jesus, be our guest,

and let these gifts to us be blessed.

Amen.

We are Lutheran and this prayer has been said before meals in our homes and at church gatherings for generations. In fact, we call it the common table prayer, but it’s really only common to us, so I would call it the Lutheran Common Table Prayer, or Come Lord Jesus.

There is continual debate about if the last line should be “let these gifts to us be blessed” or “let thy gifts to us be blessed” or even “let these thy gifts to us be blessed” for those who want to make everyone happy but throw off the rhythm.

Here is a further explanation of the meaning behind the Lutheran common table prayer.

The Catholic church uses this prayer, which is also called the common table prayer or table blessing:

Bless us O Lord, and these thy gifts,
Which we are about to receive, from thy bounty,
Through Christ, Our Lord.
Amen.

Our family usually prays “Come, Lord Jesus” before meals, although at times we pray in our own words. We tend to do that more at other times than meal time.

Other Common Table Blessings

Here are other common prayers you may use at your family dinner table. Did your family use one of these, or another prayer? If your family had a common prayer you used that is not listed, please share it in the comments below.

Our kids also learned some fun prayers at camp and we incorporate some of those. Here are links to fun camp prayers: Grace Before Meals at Camp and Camp Songs for Grace

God is great, God is good.
Let us thank him for our food.
By his hands we all are fed.
Thank you Lord for our daily bread.
Amen.

Blessed are you, O Lord God, King of the Universe, for you give us food to sustain our lives and make our hearts glad; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Be present at our table Lord,

Be here and everywhere adored.

These mercies bless and grant that we

May feast in fellowship with thee.

Amen

Lord, we thank You
for the food before us,
the friends beside us,
the love between us;
And Your Presence among us.
Amen.

Come Lord Jesus be our Guest,
Our morning joy, our evening rest,
And with our daily bread impart,
Your love and peace to every heart.
Amen.

Oh give thanks unto the Lord,

for He is good,

and His mercy endures forever.

Amen.
