Here is my 2011 Thanksgiving prayer. The turkey wasn’t large enough for all of my thanksgivings, so this is my Group Gratitude prayer. Most of the people I am grateful for fit into one of these groups. I’ve probably forgotten a few, so I’m imagining them on the other side of the turkey.
Yesterday a woman said, “I’m not just thankful for the things God has given me now; but I’m thankful for all of the future ways in which God will love me and care for me.” Hallelujah!
Making hand-turkey prayers might be a good after Thanksgiving dinner activity for children and adults alike. Help a child trace around their hand or let them borrow yours.
“Praise God from whom all blessings flow…..”
