A Prayer of Thanksgiving (even when giving thanks seems hard)

Good morning  ~

I’m hitting the road later today (weather permitting) for our family’s Thanksgiving gathering. I’ll be praying for you and your safety this week.

I wanted to leave you with a prayer of Thanks today, but I realize that not everyone has a joyful celebration ahead of them this week. Some of us find it down-right hard to be grateful when we’re in the middle of turmoil and personal crisis. 

With that in mind, here’s a prayer I think might fit the bill:

Father in Heaven, I am grateful for this moment in time that I can simply speak to You. Open my heart to recognize all the gifts You’ve provided today, this week, this month, and this year. 

Thank You for the strength You give me each day, for the blessings seen and unseen. Help me recognize Your work so that I can give You praise and thanksgiving. Plant the seeds of gratitude and generosity in my heart so that I might spread Your blessings to those around me.


Have a blessed Thanksgiving,
