A Prayer For Today

Dear Father in Heaven,

We gather together to give thanks and praise for who You are and all You have done for us, for our friends and family both near and far, for Your mercy and forgiveness, and most of all for the gift of salvation through Your son Jesus Christ.

We thank You for our country, the United States of America, founded upon the sacrifices and hard work of the many before us. You have granted to us this beautiful and bountiful land, filled with the fruits of freedom, worship and hard work.

Help us to be truly thankful for the many blessings in our lives. Remind us to be humble in our abundance, and guide us to live a life that is pleasing to You.

In Jesus' name,

Amen.

Blessings to all for a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Wish I'd have seen that prayer -- and used it last week for our pre-meal devotion.

I've been posting a thankful message each day on Facebook and attempting to rise above the cares of the world.
