Prayers Before Breaking Fast


Breaking a fast is a major event, especially during religious observances such as Ramadan in Islam or other fasting times.

“Lord, as I break my fast, I thank You for the strength and self-control You have given me.” Bless this food for nourishing my body and renewing my spirit. May this meal serve as a reminder of the riches of Your grace. Assist me in incorporating the lessons of fasting into my daily life by practicing awareness and thankfulness. This prayer is offered in Your name. Amen.”

Following are some Bible scriptures about breaking a fast or sharing a meal:

  1. Matthew 26:26 (NIV): “While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, ‘Take and eat; this is my body.'”
  2. Luke 24:30 (NIV): “When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them.”
  3. Acts 27:35 (NIV): “After he said this, he took some bread and gave thanks to God in front of them all. Then he broke it and began to eat.”
  4. 1 Corinthians 10:16-17 (NIV): “Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ? Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all share the one loaf.”
  5. 1 Corinthians 11:24-25 (NIV): “And when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, ‘This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.'”

These New Testament texts emphasize the act of breaking bread and offering thanks, which is important in Christian traditions during the Lord’s Supper or Communion. While they may not directly connect to fasting, they do emphasize the spiritual and community components of sharing a meal in a faith context.
