Prayer 675- Thanksgiving Day

A few of us lead the delegates in singing "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing" at the 175th Convention of the Diocese of Missouri. Those singing or performing are, from left, me, Bishop Wayne Smith, Eliza Lynn, Marshall Crossnoe, and Clay McKinney. Photo by Beth Felice.

For Thanksgiving Day
Almighty God, we lift our hearts to give thanks to You. Our cups overflow with all You have given us: we are blessed indeed! Happy are those who act with justice, and always seek what is good and right! 

Uphold us in your embrace, for You are the source of all good things, our Creator and Companion. Make us a blessing to our brothers and sisters, kith and kin, remembering the blessing of love in our lives. 

Thank You for the sure foundation of love and companionship that reminds us of Your unfailing love for us. Extend your hand of blessing over us, O Holy One, and make us a holy people, drawn together in harmony. 

Protect us, guide us, inspire us, and nurture us as we journey through this precious life You have given us. Shield, guard, and protect those for whom we pray this day.
