In lieu of a video this week, I offer this prayer for your use this Thanksgiving Day. It is not my own, but certainly reflects the thoughts we hold for this day.
Dear heavenly Father, we gather together to praise and thank you
today for the gift of yourself, our God and Father. Thank you for
sending us your Son, Jesus, who lives in our hearts by the power
of your Holy Spirit. Thank you for our faith, family, and friends,
for health and country, and for the gift of life, the abundant
blessings and mercies you have poured forth upon us and
our loved ones. Please bless with your loving mercy the
hungry, homeless, lonely, sick, suffering, and the refugees.
Help each of us to be a blessing to them, for you hear
the cry of the poor. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen
Have a blessed Thanksgiving,
