Look for this prayer each week. Take time to pray it each day and know that your church family is saying this prayer too.
Gracious God, During this week when as I celebrate the holiday of Thanksgiving, I will be reminded of the many things for which I am grateful. I have been blessed with all that I need and then some. I am rich in spirit because I have a church family that supports me and helps nurture my faith; and most importantly, because I am blessed to have a personal relationship with you. Thank you, God. In the shadow of my gratitude are those for whom I know lack the good fortune I have; and there are those who have yet to find you. I offer prayers of hope for them…knowing that you love them and have only good in mind for them. Use my gratitude as motivation to reach out to help those, as I am able, in need of emotional encouragement, healing support, and resources for daily living. Thank you for the opportunities I have to share your love with others. Thank you God for everything. Amen.
