Does it happen to you like this?
Everyone is waiting to get their food or sitting around the table at Thanksgiving, and someone suggests a prayer before eating. Somehow, God chooses you because He knows you can share Him with the familiar faces around the table.
Do you fumble like me, and then regret not saying the most poignant prayer?
Right there was the moment to shine for God…and you blow it. Maybe you resort to “God is great, God is good, thank you for the food.” While this isn’t a wrong prayer per se, might you want to inspire your audience with some thought put into the prayer?
It’s Thanksgiving, so the prayer needs to be really good (or is it just me that feels this pressure?)
Now I understand that God knows what’s in our hearts, but this is an opportunity to witness faith and thankfulness to our Father in Heaven. This year I am prepared and thought I would share a Thanksgiving prayer in printable form as my thankfulness to you, my reader.
I praise you for your wisdom and understanding of my needs! You are so good to us! We can’t even wrap my head around all the blessings you give us. Many of the blessings you send us, we don’t even realize nor appreciate. Today, on Thanksgiving, we want to say a few extra thank yous.
I want to ask you to bless the world in which we live God, please help us do our part in sharing your Word so souls would be gathered for you. As our nation experiences evil, I pray you would shine ever brightly to those without hope. The world needs you!
I pray for the missionaries and field workers.
Bless the country we live in. Let there be peace and love.
Bless the church, the group of believers around the world, but also the physical building where we belong. Give us passion and drive to spread your Word. Let us live in a way that shares your love, rather than gives you a bad name. Lead my pastor and other church workers. Keep them safe from the attacks of Satan upon them.
Bless our friends and acquaintances.
Bless and keep our family safe. Let our hearts find you first because when you are a prized possession, all our close relationships seem to work better. Help us love and cherish each other. Help us grow in faith together.
We are truly blessed,
Your children, Amen!
