Thanksgiving Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,
As we sit down at our Thanksgiving table once again, we want to thank Thee for all our many blessings.

We thank Thee for meeting our needs every day - for food and shelter and clothing, and for the many extras Thou hast provided that we so often take for granted.

We thank Thee for our family and friends who enrich our lives.

We thank Thee that we are blessed to live in a country where we are free to worship Thee and to read Thy word.

Most of all, we thank Thee for Thy Son, Jesus Christ, who is the 'light of the world.' We are grateful for His sacrifice for our sake.

We ask Thee to bless this food of which we are about to partake, that it may strengthen our bodies so we may have more energy to serve those around us in need - thereby showing our love to Thee.

We say these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen
