    My family doesn't do table prayers, except when both my Polish grandmothers come over for Thanksgiving and the like. And in those instances, they're always in Polish; so I barely have any idea what they're saying anyway.

    Yes I would assume for table prayers you would need a table.

    Table prayer is just another word for prayer before a meal (considering how most meals take place on a table :) ) Would one need a table? I don't know. :lol:

    It depends on the event. For my family, it usually comes whenever there's a more extended family there -- like with my aunts and uncles and grandparents. That's usually Easter and Christmas, but occasionally it might be a birthday or even mother's or father's day.

    Usually someone just kind of makes it up as they go along. Expressing thanks.

    No, a table isnt required. I mean you would still bless your food if you were on a blanket at a picnic.
