My son is 11 and a Boy Scout and truly enjoys the experience of being a scout. He volunteered to be the Chaplains Aid for the troop. One of his responsibilities is to say grace prior to meals at camp outs and other functions. He has elected to recite the standard prayer - “Bless us Lord and these thy gifts…” and was told by an adult leader that this prayer is not appropriate as it is too “denominational”.
Is this prayer Catholic in origin?
Does anyone have a suggestion concerning a “non-denominational” saying of grace?
