Some funny dinner prayers include, "Rub a dub dub, thanks for the grub! Yay, God!" and, "Heavenly Father, we thank you for this food, and humbly request you perform a miracle and remove the calories from dessert." One for lunch is, "Lord, bless this bunch as they munch their lunch."
Saying a prayer of grace before dinner is a common practice of most Christian faiths, regarded as an act of thanks towards God for His sustenance. Other religions, such as Islam, Judaism and Hinduism have similar traditions involving prayers before a meal. Non-religious traditions are also common, such as "the Boy Scout grace" or the Japanese custom of stating, "Itadakimasu," before a meal.
