Thanksgiving Prayer


Thank You, God, for all the wonderful blessings, for our daily meals, for clean drinking water and for sunlight, and for the cool breeze. I'm thankful for my family, my friends and my health. I'm thankful for my friends, to love and be loved. Thank You for this great country and for the freedom it offers. I'm thankful to be alive and praise You for all these wonders. I'm thankful that You have been so gracious to give Your only Son to us who gave his life and bore the unbearable for us sinners. On this Thanksgiving Day, I take the opportunity to give thanks for countless other things You provide us with on a daily basis.
