Thanksgiving Prayer – Janet Eriksson

At this time of Thanksgiving, Lord, we want to bless You with our lives, our thanks, our praise.

The Thanksgiving table reminds us of Your bountiful love and the blessings of Your presence with us.

Help us to stay mindful of Your goodness throughout the coming year.

God, we thank You for life, for relationship with You and those You have brought into our lives, for salvation, for the joy of being with You in every moment, and for the chance to always be growing and transforming to be more like Jesus.

We thank You, God, for all You provide. When we feel like we are lacking in provision, help us to focus on the abundance of all You have blessed us with. We cannot begin to count Your blessings.

Fill our hearts with praise and worship for You. Let us be joyful in our hearts just because You are with us. Help us to praise You even in difficult times. Let the joy of the Lord be our strength.

In Jesus’ name. Amen
