A Thanksgiving Prayer

I wrote this prayer for one of our family Thanksgiving dinners a few years ago.  Feel free to borrow it for your grace prayer tomorrow if you like. And accept my sincere wishes to you and yours for a loving, happy, grateful Thanksgiving.

Come, our thankful families, come.  Offer grace for the bounty of goodness.  Raise the song of harvest home, the glass of good cheer, the heart overflowing with joy.  We have so much for which to be thankful.  So much about which to smile, so much to share.  So much, that in this time of uncertainty and loss, we can embrace a season of relinquishment.  All we have is all we need.

O beloved Lord, truly you have given us so much, an extravagance of riches.  Give us, we pray, one thing more.  The gift of grateful hearts.    Amen.
