7 Dinner Prayers for Large Groups

Acts 2:46
Divine Father, I thank You for this dinner and I thank You for the people who have gathered here with me because this is an act of fellowship. In the book of Acts, day by day Your people would attend the temple together and break bread in their homes; they received their food with glad and generous hearts. We too receive this food with glad and generous hearts Lord, Amen.

1 Corinthians 10:31
God of Heaven, we devote our hearts to You even as we gather here as a large group to eat, we pray that You remain at the centre. Your Word commands that whether we eat or drink, or whatever we do, we must do all for the glory of You! I pray that when we gather, we do not forget this, because it is only by Your grace that each of us are able to sit alongside one another, just as You have intended. Lord, bless this meal we pray, Amen.

John 6:35
Eternal One, we thank You for this physical meal and we pray that it satisfies us as we eat it. We pray for the hands that provided this food, please bless those hands. Lord, although we are thankful for this meal, we are even more grateful for the bread of life. We are thankful for Your Son (Jesus) because whoever comes to Him shall not hunger, and whoever believes in Him shall never thirst! Amen.

Genesis 1:29
Holy One, thank You for this meal and thank You for every individual at this dinner table! Lord, in the beginning You gave us every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit so that we could have them for food. From the beginning You have provided for us and this meal is the fruition of Your word in Genesis; so, thank You Lord, Amen.

Hebrews 10:25
Matchless God, our hearts are glad and grateful right now. So many of us have taken the time out of busy schedules to come together during this dinner time to share food and encourage one another. Your Word says that we mustn’t neglect to meet together, as is the habit of some. Instead we must be encouraging one to another, and even more as we see the Day drawing near. I pray that we continue to be there for one another, Amen.

Mark 2:15-17
Eternal Father, I thank You for every soul that sits at this dinner table. I thank You that we can come together as a group, fellowship and eat without judgment. When Your Son graced the earth, He sat at the table with tax collectors and sinners. I pray that we as people of God open our dinner table to all for there are many who want to follow You. Let us not be fearful of the judgement of others because those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. You came not to call the righteous, but sinners, Amen.

Philippians 2:2-4
Awesome God, as we gather at the dining table let us complete Your joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. I pray that we do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than ourselves. Let each of us look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others as we eat together, Amen.
