A Thanksgiving Prayer

Family Thanksgiving Prayer
Dear precious Lord,We bow our heads in heartfelt, thankful prayer;For all the ways You've blessed our livesand for Your loving care.We thank You for the handsthat have prepared this special treatAnd pray that You will bless all those who have no food to eat.

We're thankful for Salvation's plan and for Your Holy Word;And pray we'll help to spread Your love to those who've never heard.We're thankful for our freedom and for churches that are near;Where we can meet to praise Your Name and worship without fear.

But still our hearts are saddened by our brothers who aren't free;Who suffer death and torture for their Christianity.We pray You'll give them strength and courage as their cross they bear;And let them know God's family remembers them in prayer.

We thank You for heroic troops who fight for liberty;And daily risk their lives and limbs to keep our country free.Forgive us of our many sins and keep us close today;And bless this food You've given us, In Jesus Name, we pray.


Love to you all,
