Food: What does Timothy mean by sanctified food by the word of God?

1 Timothy 4:4-5

Food: What does Timothy mean by sanctifying food by the word of God? Does he mean I can simply say some words of God to make unclean food clean? Like can I say some words of God and snakes or pigs become clean and their effect on my health is vanquished? If so what words of God? 🤔

Anyways this is unlikely what he meant. Sanctified by the word of God means the foods are sanctified in the Bible i.e. classified clean. He then adds we should pray before we eat the meal. This is what he meant by “sanctified by the word of God and prayer”. 💡🙏🏾
