It was at one time (maybe still is) a common practice to read the Bible and pray after eating dinner together as a family. I'm trying to think about how to introduce people to this practice if they have not done it before, but I want to learn more about the tradition first.
If you did this (or do this) I'm wondering if you could help me out by answering a few questions.
- How did you choose what Bible passage to read? Did you use a reading plan or just stick a bookmark in and go through chapter by chapter?
- Did you have a written prayer you used as part of this time, or was it always something improvised?
- Did you use any other devotionals during this time (like "Today" or "Our Daily Bread")?
Please leave your answers as comments below in the comment section. Thanks!
