Thanksgiving day prayer

Our Father in heaven,

On this of all days, we thank you for giving us a Savior, Christ Jesus our Lord.

We thank you for his willingness to pay the price, for the just to die for the unjust, for the holy one to die for the sinner, for the creator to die for his creatures.

We thank you for his resurrection from the dead, that he lives forever to make intercession for us sinners, and for the promise of life eternal through his grace.

We thank you for the gift of your Spirit who condescends to dwell in us.

We thank you for the body of Christ and the faithful saints who wrought with God to bequeath the Gospel to us.

We thank you for those who are even now dwelling in the regions beyond to proclaim the Gospel to strangers in a strange land, and we ask that you prosper their efforts.

We thank you for giving us truth, a firm foundation in your Word, and for giving us the mind of Christ to comprehend it.

We thank you, Lord, for this nation in which we live, and we thank you for liberty which, though threatened, is still alive.  Thank you for those who died to safeguard this liberty, and thank you for those who are still on the vanguard of liberty now.

We thank you for family, for the blessing of children, for parents who still live, for health such as we enjoy knowing this is a gift of God.

We thank you for a day when we can enjoy the plenty you have provided, and we thank you that this land has not known famine in a very long time.

Make us mindful of the widow and the fatherless, to walk after you in mercy, and to show forth the glory of Christ’s calling until he comes.

Move in our hearts to love you as we should, to love our brethren and seek their good, to love the truth, and then to seek it, find it, live it, and declare it.

In the holy name of Jesus our Redeemer,

Amen.

    Very beautiful, inspirational, thought provoking and many other adjectives.

    I pray for your work for the kingdom through this blog almost daily, that your readership will expand exponentially, that lives will be guided or led as the Lord would have them led, and that unbelievers will change their minds so as to become believers.

    I sent a recent article on global warming to both our senators.
