This coming Thursday we celebrate Thanksgiving. It is a time, hopefully for us all, to get together with family and friends, to enjoy a good meal, to reconnect as family, and probably watch a game or two on TV. But we would be remiss if we did not take a moment to give thanks for the many blessings of our lives. Despite the difficulties of life, we can always find something good in our lives for which to give thanks. Here is a Thanksgiving Prayer that you may want to use on Thursday:
Thanksgiving Table Prayer
O Gracious God, we give you thanks for your overflowing generosity to us. Thank you for the blessings of the food we eat and especially for this feast today. Thank you for our home and family and friends, especially for the presence of those gathered here. Thank you for our health, our work, and our play. Please send help to those who are hungry, alone, sick, and suffering war and violence. Open our hearts to your love. We ask your blessing through Christ your son. Amen.
