Thanksgiving Day Prayer


Abba Father,

For the beauty in this world,

I thank You…

Whether it is a glorious skyline…

Or children jumping in leaves…

Or a flowering weed…

I thank You.

 

For the good in this world

I thank You…

Whether it’s volunteers in missions…

Or homeless shelters…

Or a mother’s faith in her child…

I thank You.

 

For the bravery in this world

I thank You…

Whether it’s a policeman facing crime…

Or the bullied saying, “Enough”…

Or a child battling deadly disease…

I thank You.

 

For faith, family and friends in this world

I thank You…

Whether we are always at peace…

Or see enough of one another…

Or understand individual battles…

I thank You.

 

For these things in this world

I thank You…

Whether others see what I do or not…

Or these things seem too vague…

Or perhaps they seem too small…

I thank You.

 

For these things in this world

I thank You…

Without them my life would be less…

My heart would be less tender…

My soul would be less free…

I thank You.

 

For this day set aside to be grateful

I thank You…

Whether in sickness or in health…

Abundance or in need

In smiles or in wretched tears…

I thank You.

 

I thank You.

-d.f.a.v. 11/26/13

Many blessings!

Happy Thanksgiving!
