Thanksgiving - A Tradition Shared and Meal Prayer

Thanksgiving Day comes by once a year so let's make the most by offering sincere thanks for all that we have. Here is a prayer to get you started and perhaps include as your circle of family or friends gather for a holiday meal.

In my family when the kids were growing up we took time to hold hands around the table, and each take turns saying one appreciation for the person seated to our right. Then the head of the table said a prayer of thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving Prayer

Today we give thanks for all that we have
For our family, friends and neighbors, too.
For a bountiful harvest to partake
And as much as we can, to be of use.

Thankful we are for continued health
To give our time and helping hands.
For jobs to care for those we love
To provide for much as we truly can.

We are thankful for fuel to heat our homes
And gas to run our cars.
For warm clothes against the winter's wind
We very grateful are.

We are thankful for our basic needs
For everything that's here.
We know by sharing from our bounty
Others will find their way this year.

For those nearest and dearest to us
All our community, too.
And for our billions of brothers and sisters
A worldwide family all, it's true,
We are thankful and grateful this year!
