Thanksgiving prayer from "Dear Abby's" mother

Post by tinythinker » Wed Nov 24, 2010 2:57 pm

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 freedom and remember the enslaved.
May these remembrances stir us to service,
That Thy gifts to us may be used for others. Amen.

We have so much, from a God who didn't need to give it to us, through the sacrifice of his Son and his own delight in mercy, and for nothing at all that we did. Take heart and enjoy the meal today. If you can, help others out, too. But don't make service the grounds or legitimizing element of your Thanksgiving. To do that would miss the point of the gospel.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
