Do I have to say grace before I eat?

Here's a cool article from StudentSoul to follow-up tonight's (WWD)^2

And here are some reasons I've noticed for praying before eating (there are more, for sure, but here're a few):

Thanksgiving --- God, you provide for us - salvation, love, community - even food!

Worship --- Let our eating be considered worship of you, Jesus, not anyone else!

Protection --- God, sovereign over the universe, protect us from our food!

Health --- God, work a miracle and make this Pop Tart healthy!

Tradition/Solidarity --- Father, we join with our global, historical family in Christ and pray before eating.
