A prayer to tuck into your heart as you prepare for Thanksgiving.
It’s Thanksgiving — a day centered around gratitude, family and traditions. As we gather with family and friends, help us find common ground. If we are unable to do so, give us peace. Help us see Your face around the table. On this day of gathering and feasts, may we remember that it’s never really about the food but about the people around the table.
Lord, we are so grateful for the blessings You lavish. We thank You for family, friends, food, shelter and for the glory found in the small things as well. Thank You for a day — a life — focused on giving thanks. May our lives become a series of thankful days. Amen.
