Note: This year has been difficult. We know that many of you may not be able to be with extended family during this pandemic. Today through Thanksgiving, we’ll be sharing several new prayers for this Thanksgiving season. Please join us in prayer as we celebrate Thanksgiving.

Lord, this year it is hard to give thanks because of all the turmoil we have had with the pandemic and the election. Yet my heart reaches out to you to thank you for life itself. I give you thanks for all those that I love and ask you to take care of them. I thank you for who I am and I trust in your Providence. May I always love you and serve you. I thank you for all you have given me, but especially for …………………………….. I praise you in the name of Jesus, your son, who lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen.
