 MORNING PRAYER

Thanksgiving weekend is fast approaching. Thanksgiving is a time of being grateful for the blessings that we have. It is a time to say thank you to God for our many blessings. At this time of the year, we also remember those who do not have enough food.    


Loving God, 

We gather in thanksgiving for the abundant blessings you bestow upon us. 

The many blessings you give us help us to see

the immense love you have for each of your children. 

Help us to stop and give thanks each day for what we have. 

Help us to be generous when we share our blessings. 

We ask this through Jesus.

Amen
