Praying in bulk is far more efficient than praying over each individual meal. Besides, God probably doesn't even view time linearly like we do. A prayer is a prayer; why should he care if it occurs exactly before the consumption of food? Based on the assumption that I'll eat three square meals and a snack per day, I prayed 56 times today. I'm good for the next two weeks.

But what if you give thanks for food that later gets destroyed?

I just see it as an excuse to pray. Actually I don't bless my food typically. Occansionally when I eat alone I might, but usually it's only when I'm with people who are already inclined to do so. After all, why would I not be thankful for a meal just because I didn't specifically SAY I was thankful for it? It's a social thing so it's good to do when others get a benefit out of it.

It's not about SAYING it, it's taking the effort and extra time to give thanks to God before you tear into your meal. God appreciates that.

The Bible doesn't say to pray before meals. It's just tradition.

Because of the similar biblical examples were -

Actually, you don't even care, do you? You just want to argue.

Tradition that Jesus did.

If I didn't care, I wouldn't ask. If you say god likes something, I want to know how YOU know.

That's still not a commandment.

Praying ahead of time with a mind towards efficiency seems contrary to the spirit of the thing.
The problem, then, is that if subjective worlds are experienced too differently, there occurs a breakdown in communication. -- Philip K. Dick
