A THANKSGIVING PRAYER

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.  Psalm 100:4-5

THANKSGIVING PRAYER

As friends and family gather around
This Thanksgiving may our hearts abound
With love and laughter and the gifts of the heart
For another year God did impart.
Whether heartache or heartbreak, whatever befell
In sorrow or joy we remember this well
That God in His infinite mercy and grace
Has brought us together once again on this day.
May we always be thankful for the good and the bad
For times in good health and times we were sad
Whether rich or poor may we open our door
To the unloved, unlovely, hopeless and frail
God grant us love to all who hover near.
Let us always be humbled by the gift of God’s Son
For each brand new day He has granted us
In each moment, each hour, may we never forget
To soak in Thanksgiving brings the greatest of gifts.

 Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. 
 Hebrews 13:15-16

...speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 5:19-20
