We should pray for the Lord to bless our food before eating it. Jesus heals the sick Jesus left and many people followed him out of the cities.

Matt. 14:15 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat. Matt. 14:16 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.
