Before and After - Grace (prayer) - Netflix
A grace is a short prayer or thankful phrase said before or after eating. Less commonly, it may be a prayer of thanks for other things. A grace for light is the subject of the poem of the same name, by Moira O'Neill, and is mentioned by Erasmus, in the Querela Pacis. The term most commonly refers to Christian traditions. Some traditions hold that grace and thanksgiving imparts a blessing which sanctifies the meal. In English, reciting such a prayer is sometimes referred to as “saying grace”.
