A Thanksgiving Prayer –
Heavenly Father, As we and our loved ones come together in a spirit of Thanksgiving, we give you thanks for everything.
We thank You for a life of faith in You. We have a Great, Awesome God, in whom we savor an everlasting love and mercy, and a life eternally begotten.
Thank You for our Lord Jesus Christ. He is our blessed Savior, by whom we savor the amazing Grace He so graciously offers. In Him and through Him, we have a life eternal in Your heavenly Kingdom so destined for us believers.
Psalm 69:30 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify Him with thanksgiving.
Giving Thanks for Blessings
We thank You for our lives, our loved ones, our jobs and all the gifts and blessings through which we enjoy a life of goodness and fruitfulness.
We pray that we will savor these blessings in all honesty, integrity and faithfulness. May we not take for granted these blessings You have bestowed upon us, in all goodness.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 In every thing give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
Praying for Others
Father, we also take time to remember those who are suffering in war-ridden countries. Those suffering persecutions, or in condemnation behind prison walls. We pray for the abused, those suffering with long-term illnesses and those who are at their death-bed.
We pray that they find consolation in their hearts and a great affirmation that all their suffering will come to an end in Your perfect timing. May them be comforted in the eternal promises You so ensure towards Your faithful people.
Colossians 4:2 Be persistent and devoted to prayer, being alert and focused in your prayer life with an attitude of thanksgiving.
Walking in Faith
We give thanks Heavenly Father and we pray that we will continue this journey in faith. May we trust in Your heavenly graces, and walk our faith in the way You have called us.
May our steps be in the Lord Jesus Christ, as we remain deeply rooted in Him all the days of our lives.
