Karakia mō mua i te kai — Grace Before Meals
Grace is the name given to the prayer of thanks we say before eating.
Short statements of gratitude they might also include thanks for what has happened during the day.
There are many forms of grace. There is no correct one. The following are just a few ideas.
Bless us, O Lord, and these your gifts, which we are about to receive from your bounty, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Bless us O Lord, bless this food, bless those who prepared it and give food to the hungry. Amen
