A Thanksgiving Day Prayer

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, 
since as members of one body you were called to peace. 
And be thankful.

Colossians 3:15

A Thanksgiving Day Prayer
~Scott Wesemann

Lord, so often times, as any other day
When we sit down to our meal and pray
We hurry along and make fast the blessing

Thanks, amen. Now please pass the dressing

We're slaves to the olfactory overload
We must rush our prayer before the food gets cold

But Lord, I'd like to take a few minute more
To really give thanks to what I'm thankful for

For my family, my health, a nice soft bed
My friends, my freedom, a roof over my head

I'm thankful right now to be surrounded by those
Whose lives touch me more than they'll ever possibly know

Thankful Lord, that You've blessed me beyond measure
Thankful that in my heart lives life's greatest treasure

That You, dear Jesus, reside in that place
And I'm ever so grateful for Your unending grace

So please, heavenly Father, bless this food You've provided
And bless each and every person invited


Have a blessed Thanksgiving Day!
