3. Thanksgiving Dinner Prayer

Heavenly Father, on Thanksgiving Day

We bow our hearts to You and pray.

We give You thanks for all You’ve done

Especially for the gift of Jesus, Your Son.

For beauty in nature, Your glory we see

For joy and health, friends and family,

For daily provision, Your mercy and care

These are the blessings You graciously share.

So today we offer this response of praise

With a promise to follow You all of our days. Amen.

-Mary Fairchild

4. A Thanksgiving Day Prayer 

Lord, so often times, as any other day

When we sit down to our meal and pray

We hurry along and make fast the blessing

Thanks, amen. Now please pass the dressing

We’re slaves to the olfactory overload

We must rush our prayer before the food gets cold

But Lord, I’d like to take a few minute more

To really give thanks to what I’m thankful for

For my family, my health, a nice soft bed

My friends, my freedom, a roof over my head

I’m thankful right now to be surrounded by those

Whose lives touch me more than they’ll ever possibly know

Thankful Lord, that You’ve blessed me beyond measure

Thankful that in my heart lives life’s greatest treasure

That You, dear Jesus, reside in that place

And I’m ever so grateful for Your unending grace

So please, heavenly Father, bless this food You’ve provided

And bless each and every person invited

Amen

-Scott Wesemann
