Thanksgiving isn't only about sharing a wonderful meal with your loved ones, it is also a time to meditate on all you are grateful for. This practice of expressing gratitude is not limited to any particular religious tradition. To that end, Beliefnet has compiled prayers of gratitude from a variety of religions in honor of Thanksgiving.
