Thanksgiving

28 Nov

“We Give Thanks” by Harry Jewell

Our Father in Heaven,
We give thanks for the pleasure
Of gathering together for this occasion.
We give thanks for this food
Prepared by loving hands.
We give thanks for life,
The freedom to enjoy it all
And all other blessings.
As we partake of this food,
We pray for health and strength
To carry on and try to live as You would have us.
This we ask in the name of Christ,
Our Heavenly Father.

and here’s my own prayer for today

Bless the food before us,
the family beside us,
the dogs below us,
the roof above us
and the love between us that unites us.
We thank you for the gifts you have given us and pray that you will
bless those who have none of these. Amen
