Thursday is our big day to give thanks. My prayer is that your Thanksgiving is full of joy and a renewed sense of gratitude. The following Thanksgiving blessing is a prayer that holds special meaning to me. It can be prayed 365 days a year. After all, Christians don't settle on one day of thanksgiving. We are called to give God thanks and praise all year long.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Prayer for Today 

Thanksgiving Blessing

O God,

We thank you for this earth, our home; for the wide sky and the blessed sun, for the ocean and streams, for the towering hills and the whispering wind, for the trees and green grass.

We thank you for our senses by which we hear the songs of birds, and see the splendor of fields of golden wheat, and taste autumn's fruit, rejoice in the feel of snow, and smell the breath of spring flowers.

Grant us a heart opened wide to all this beauty; and save us from being so blind that we pass unseeing when even the common thorn bush is aflame with your glory.

For each new dawn is filled with infinite possibilities for new beginnings and new discoveries. Life is constantly changing and renewing itself. In this new day of new beginnings with God, all things are possible. We are restored and renewed in a joyous awakening to the wonder that our lives are and, yet, can be.

Amen.
