A Prayer of Thanksgiving


O Gracious God, we give you thanks for your overflowing generosity to us. Thank you for the blessings of the food we eat and especially for this feast today. Thank you for our home and family and friends, especially for the presence of those gathered here. Thank you for our health, our work and our play. Please send help to those who are hungry, alone, sick and suffering war and violence. Open our hearts to your love. We ask your blessing through Christ your son. Amen.

"Little children, rejoice in everything that you have, and give thanks to God because everything is God's gift to you. That way you will be able to give thanks for everything in your life and discover God in everything, even in the smallest flower." (April 25, 1989)
