A Thanksgiving Prayer

Father – As we gather around our Thanksgiving tables this week, loaded with food and surrounded by loved ones, may we not forget those who face this day dealing with death, divorce, or debt, those who are homeless, jobless, sick or alone. Jesus taught us to give thanks for all things, to be grateful when our hands are full or when they are empty, but that can be really difficult when we are caught up in the storms of life. May we keep in mind that all gratitude is ultimately gratitude for Christ and that thanksgiving is the only response we can give to God’s gifts of creation, redemption and salvation. May we praise God and thank Him, not for what we have or don’t have, not for the circumstances of our lives, but for His saving grace. Amen

[God] is looking for those with changed hearts and minds. Whoever has that kind of change in his life will get his praise from God. – Romans 2:29 TLB


Dear God, while I realize that change is inevitable in my life, I am struggling with giving up what is familiar and comfortable. Help me remember as changes come that You are the God who never changes. Steady my heart and help me trust You to take me safely into the unknown. Amen.
