Happy Thanksgiving-Thanksgiving Prayer
Prayer of Thanksgiving
O God, we thank you for this earth, our home;
we thank you for the vast and beautiful sky and the blessed sun,
we thank you for the salted seas and the running pure waters,
we thank you the everlasting hills and mountains,
we thank you for the never-resting winds,
we thank you for the trees and the simple grass under our feet.
We thank you for our senses
that let us hear the songs of the birds,
that give us sight to see the splendor of the summer fields,
that let us taste the autumn fruits,
that let us rejoice in the feel of the first fallen snow,
And smell the breath of the newborn spring.
Dear God grant us a heart wide open to all this beauty;
And save our souls from being so blind by the problems of this day,
That we may pass not seeing the beauty of your creations,
nor feeling the love of our families and friends,
That even in the storms of life,
We still find ourselves inflamed with Love for you.
O God our creator,
Bless all here today,
Grant that they find peace and love in their homes and hearts,
And thank you Lord for providing us with this Thanksgiving dinner
And grant us peace now and always
Through your Son Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
May the Lord bless us,
And bring us to everlasting life.
