Q: Do Baha'is have a special prayer they say for grace at meals? A: Although Baha'is do not practice the custom of saying grace before meals, the following prayer is sometimes used when one is asked to say a prayer before a meal. He is God! Thou seest us, O my God, gathered around this table, praising Thy bounty, with our gaze set upon Thy Kingdom. O Lord! Send down upon us Thy heavenly food and confer upon us Thy blessing. Thou art verily the Bestower, the Merciful, the Compassionate. ~Abdu'l-Baha
