A Prayer of Thanksgiving

Pastor Tom Joyce

November 21, 2022


Gracious God, giver of every perfect gift and author of our salvation through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  We gather to give you thanks for all the blessings we have received in life; family, friends, church, community, nation, and the boundless creation you have blessed us with throughout our days. We thank you for all those along our path that witness their faith to us daily. Most of all, we thank you for being our God, for creating us, redeeming us, and calling us each by name as your honored, precious, and beloved people. Help us to witness all we have received to all people, and to celebrate all we have received in service to you.  We pray for those who are hungering not only for food but for your Word; we pray for those who need your healing touch and guidance. We pray for those who mourn losses in their lives, who may have an empty chair around their table this year. We pray for those who are sick and challenged in so many ways. Lord, we just thank you for the absolute privilege for being your children and the joy of serving in your name.  May our giving thanks every moment of every day be a joyful noise to you. Thank you, Lord, for this day, and may our lives reflect the joy, hope, peace, love and grace that you have shared with us through your cross and the eternal gift of your resurrection. In the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Amen
