I kind of take saying grace for granted.
I do it.
But I know not everyone else does.
However, I don’t eat with everyone else…
It’s an issue of observation, if you think about it.
The same problem that induction has – the same problem that all of science has.
We do prayers before bed too.
Apparently, the great G.K Chesterton said it before everything.
“You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, And grace before the play and pantomime, And grace before I open a book, And grace before sketching, painting, Swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing And grace before I dip the pen in the ink. G. K. CHESTERTON, “A Grace,” Collected Poetry”
