Thanksgiving love across the miles

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

Dear God of Love and Compassion,

Thank you for

life-giving bread,

beauty in nature,

air, sunshine, water, and

all nature’s resources!

Thank you for

the abundant blessings

bestowed on me

through my family and friends!

Provident God,


can separate me from YOU,

nor from my loved ones!

Omnipresent God,

link us with your love and care

when we cyber-celebrate Thanksgiving across miles!

    I love the phrase “cyber-celebrate,” Norene. It’s much warmer than zoom celebrate or virtual celebration. Thanks!
