Thankful Heart: Day 22
Our Prayer of Thanks
We humbly bow before You, Lord
On this Thanksgiving Day,
To lift our prayers of gratitude
For all Your caring ways.
As You have blessed our harvest, Lord,
Let us remember, too,
That we should share with those in need
As You would have us do.
Around this festive board today
Are those we hold most dear,
And in our midst Your presence, Lord,
Seems so very near.
We're thankful for this land we love,
For sod and sky and tree,
For pilgrims who braved unknown seas
That all may worship free.
We're thankful for each blessing, Lord,
You send along our way;
But may our greater "thanks" be shown
In serving You each day.
"And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him....joyfully giving thanks to the Father, Who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light." Colossians 3:17, 1:12
