For those of us Americans, we have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving holiday.  For those readers in other countries, please join us in celebrating all that God has given us.  Here is a prayer for your consideration, today.

We thank you for all the abundant blessings and gifts You have given us.
Please let the Light of Your love continue to burn bright in us today, as we thank You and celebrate You.
Keep showing us Your will and giving us the resources and strength to do what You want us to do.
Let us find the way to love one another by seeing You, God, in our family and neighbors.
As we go forward again this day, in this life, let us always remember You and Love You.

At the end of the meal, I recommend a period of silent, faithful praise.  It’s also really wonderful to listen to people’s hopes and dreams for the coming year, readings from meaningful books, and beautiful music – all gathered around together.

I would so love to hear what your prayer, blessings, or grace is at your Thanksgiving table.  Please comment below.
