- Thanksgiving Dinner
Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to gather with family and friends and reflect on the blessings of the last year. Many of us experience renewed hope and faith during the Thanksgiving holiday because we turn our eyes onto what is most important. What if we spent time each day in giving thanks and prayer? How could God grow out faith and trust if we lived a life of thanks through all seasons and not just Thanksgiving time? When your heart is filled with gratitude, there is little room to worry or complain.
This year's celebrations on Thanksgiving Day may look different. Your heart may be aching for family members that cannot visit or for the loss of a loved one. God wants to meet us in our pain and disappointments. Through prayers of thanks and gratitude, we are able to experience the true meaning of thanksgiving. You can still use these prayers personally or share them with your friends and family, even if you cannot share these prayers around the dinner table this year. Let this year be the year you experience the blessings of living in gratitude. Start living out the promises of God that Jesus came “that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10.
Dear Lord, help us when We start letting details of the holidays, annoying frustrations or unmet expectations distract us from all the reasons we have from You to be abundantly and eternally grateful. Help us have a heart full of thankfulness every day, but especially on the specific day set aside to be grateful for You.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
