On the Thanksgiving Day, Catholics thank the creator of this universe for all the gifts and blessings that He has endowed them with. Family members together read scripture during the Thanksgiving dinner and then, take turns sharing things for which they are most thankful to god. The idea is to express an honest gratitude towards god and celebrate his kind presence in their lives. For Catholics, this sense of gratitude extends beyond the good things of life, to something which is much greater and exists on an entirely different plane. Read on to explore two catholic Thanksgiving prayers, listed just for you.
Prayer For Roman Catholics
- Prayer 1
Thank you God for all the wonderful blessings,
For our daily meals, for clean drinking water,
For sunlight and for the cool breeze.
I’m thankful for my family, my husband, my friends, and my health.
I’m thankful for my friends, to love and be loved and for freedom.
I’m thankful to be employed;
I’m thankful to be alive and praise you for all these wonders.
I’m thankful that you have been so gracious
To give your only Son to us
Who gave his life and bore the Unbearable
For us sinners.
On this Thanksgiving Day, I take the Opportunity to thanks for countless other
things you provide us with on a daily basis.
- Prayer 2
Father in Heaven, Creator of all and source of all goodness and love, please look kindly upon us and receive our heartfelt gratitude in this time of giving thanks.
Thank you for all the graces and blessings. You have bestowed upon us, spiritual and temporal: our faith and religious heritage. Our food and shelter, our health, the loves we have for one another, our family and friends.
Dear Father, in Your infinite generosity, please grant us continued graces and blessing throughout the coming year.
This we ask in the Name of Jesus, Your Son and our Brother. Amen.
