God Is Good, God Is Great

"God is good. God is great. Let us thank Him for this food. Amen."

Do you remember when you were first taught to pray? Do you remember your first prayer said at the dinner table?

How about this one? It gets my father-in-law in trouble when he says it:

"Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Biggest pig gets the most!"

Tracy and I couldn't resist buying this book we saw at Barnes and Noble. It's called "First Prayers." We bought it for Fischer, but I think I am going to enjoy it more than he will!

Here is a prayer found in the "Thank you for my food" section:

Thank you for the precious food

I eat three times a day.

Some children eat just once a week

In countries far away.

I wish that I could help them,

But I don't know what to do.

Please, God, will you make sure

That they have three meals, too?

Wow. Amen.

Sounds like that book on prayer may have a lot of food for thought. We do forget how blessed we are.
