A Thanksgiving Day Prayer: American Culture & Tradition

Thanksgiving is the time when we thank the Almighty for his continuous grace. It is a festive occasion celebrated with much enthusiasm and joy in US, Canada and many other countries. On this occasion, families offer prayers to the great Lord, at churches as well as in homes. Customary Thanksgiving prayers are quite popular before the Thanksgiving feast. God is thanked for good health, love of family and friends and all the good things of life. People seek the blessings of Lord for themselves and their loved ones as well. Health and strength to face the adversities of life are sought. In this article, we have provided a thanksgiving prayer by Scott Wesemann, which you can recite before the feast.

Thanksgiving Prayer By 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

Amen!
