For All that You Give Us
Dear Lord,
On this Thanksgiving Day,
We are thankful
For all that You give us,
For all that You do for us,
For all that You teach us.
Thank You for guiding us
To live our lives
In Your will,
In Your purpose,
In Your plan for us.
Thank You for Your protection
From worldly influence and danger.
Thank You for bringing us gently
To a deeper knowledge of You
And what You want from us,
With Your love, mercy,
Compassion and grace.
And thank you, Lord,
For the blessings
We are experiencing right now
At this very moment--
The food,
And the precious people
Who are with us
To enjoy this meal
And this day.
Thank You, Lord. Amen.
