Many Christians pray over their food, but probably not as passionately as one little boy whose prayer went viral on Twitter yesterday.
A video shows a young boy in what appears to be a class lunchroom with his peers. He leads the entire room in a prayer to bless the food—and it might be the best thing you ever see.
"Father God," he says as the rest of the room repeats after him. "We thank You ... for this food. ... We ask that You bless it. ... Make it nourishment ... to our bodies. ... Bless all the boys and girls ... all over the world ... to receive food ... in Jesus' name ... amen!"
National tax reform expert Julio Gonzalez posted the video Jan. 15. As of this writing, it has garnered over 413,600 views; 8,000 retweets; and 28,200 likes.

Although some detractors trolled the video, the overall response has been overwhelmingly positive.
"Props to the parents for teaching this young man to pray for everyone!!" one Twitter user wrote. "The world would be a better place if people looked out for others instead of their self's [sic]."
Another wrote: "This is the sweetest most pure thing I have ever seen god bless this sweet young man."
Others saw it as evidence for why the U.S. should allow prayer back in schools.
"Let's put prayer back in schools to GOD BE THE GLORY and a LITTLE CHILD SHALL LEAD THEM," one user wrote.
