A Prayer for Thanksgiving

Lord, as I sit down to a Thanksgiving table once again, I want to thank you for your goodness to me.

Thank you for meeting my needs every day – for food and shelter and clothing.  And for the many extras you provide that I so often take for granted.

Thank you for family and friends who make my life complete.  Thank you that even when we are miles apart, we are bound by the cords of your love.

Most of all I thank you for your son, Jesus Christ, who is the “light of the world.”  When I turned to Him, He flooded the darkness of my soul with the light of Your love.

Thank you for all that you have given me as a Christian: the Holy Spirit who is your presence in my life, the Bible that is a light to my pathway, Christian friends who encourage and help me.

Thank you that I can face tomorrow with hope because Jesus is living for me.

    I am thankful for a wonderful pastor. I am also thankful for his wife who is such a good example of what a Christian woman should be. Our church is truly blessed to have them both.
