Most people these days don’t even take the time to realize they’re eating, let alone give thanks for the food on their plate.
Sure, people celebrate Thanksgiving, but that’s only once a year.
Still, about half of all Americans say a prayer before a meal, according to this poll.
And this 20-month-old Indiana baby shows that you’re never too young to say “grace.”
The clip you’re about to see is only 15 seconds long, but it has 41 millions (!) views on Facebook, and there is a reason for that.
It was posted in 2016 by John and Elizabeth Incorvaia, and it shows their 20-month-old daughter, Eloise Incorvaia.
It starts when John says it’s time to say a prayer.
I don’t really know if John expected his daughter’s reaction because her response is simply beautiful, and it took me by surprise.
As soon as John starts saying the prayer, his daughter stretches her tiny hands towards her parents.
Little Eloise then shuts her eyes and listens carefully as her father delivers some moving words.
John thanks God for the food and for his “beautiful girls.”
“Heavenly Father, thank you so much for this food, thank you so much for my beautiful girls, let this food bless our bodies and keep us safe. In the son’s name we pray …”
I can’t help but wonder what was going on in Eloise’s head during this wonderful moment, but you can really see that she is very focused and listening to every single word.
At the end of the prayer, the toddler joins her parents in saying “Amen” – probably the cutest “Amen” ever caught on camera!
Watch this wonderful moment here:
After the video went viral three years ago, Eloise and her family became quite famous. Eloise was featured on Fox News, The Ellen Show, and the Today Show.
Her mom, Elizabeth Incorvaia, spoke with Fox and Friends Weekend and said that she and John want to instill a love of God in their children that they can always take comfort in.
