A Thanksgiving Prayer

This is something that I wrote some years ago, but it still applies today…

Father, I thank you for all of the ways in which you have blessed me and my family.  Our blessings are so great that it is hard to list them all, but I’d like to highlight some of them.

Thank you for my wonderful spouse, she loves me in spite of my many faults, and she is a joy in my life.  Thank you for my children, guide them in all that they do so that they may always be pleasing in your sight.  I thank you for my home and material blessings; Lord you have out done yourself!

I thank you for my Nation and my community, and for the freedom that we usually take for granted.  I also thank you for my church family, may you continue to bless them and guide them through life according to your will.

Finally Father, I thank you for the person who is reading this right now.  I pray that he or she will be blessed in this coming year, and that they will grow in faith; that they will always walk according to your ways.  I pray that he or she will be blessed with good health, loving family and a grateful outlook on your blessings.  Guide them, I pray, in your ways and according to your purpose.

Father, I ask and pray these things in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, for whom I am most thankful of all… Amen

    Thank you Don for sharing that. Happy Thanksgiving.

  3. You brought tears to my eyes. For these things I too am grateful. But when you prayed for me – that was very special. Thank you, Lord, for the family to which we belong when we follow you. Brothers and sisters in Christ, even though we have never met. Spirits linked across the miles. God bless you, Don, and your family in unexpected ways today and in the coming year.
