Prayer of Thanksgiving

prayer of ThanksgivingDear Abby recently printed this prayer that was written by her mother. She says that no Thanksgiving would be complete without it:

“Oh, Heavenly Father, We thank Thee for food and remember the hungry. We thank Thee for health and remember the sick. We thank Thee for friends and remember the friendless. We thank Thee for freedom and remember the enslaved. May these remembrances stir us to service, that Thy gifts to us may be used for others.”

This prayer, offered up in the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ, would be a great one to pray this Thanksgiving, or any day of the year.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”—Philippians 4:6.
