A Thanksgiving Day Prayer (a humble sacrifice and plea)

Thanksgiving is traditionally a time of feasting, celebrating the goodness of the Lord! It’s a day for acknowledging God’s provisions in a broken and battered world.

Life isn’t easy and pain-free.

But the Lord is real.

He is near.

He is good.

And I’m so grateful!


A Thanksgiving Day Prayer

Gracious God,

You are good. You can be nothing less than good…

…even when life doesn’t feel so good to me.

And I’m so grateful!

I’m so grateful you deliver what I need, not what I think I want.

I’m so grateful for those special someones you put in my life.

I’m so grateful for warm hugs and kind words.

I’m so grateful for work to do and time to rest.

I’m so grateful for mouths to feed and hands to hold.

I’m so grateful for each one who cheers me on and lifts me up.

I’m so grateful for a church to worship in and Christians to fellowship with. 

I’m so grateful that in my weakness, grace abounds.

I’m so grateful that in my brokenness, mercy reigns.

Oh, Lord, this Thanksgiving Day, I’m so grateful for all the goodness in my life…

…the obvious and the masked.

I’m so grateful for You!

Please accept this humble sacrifice of thanks-giving I’m offering today

and transform it into a life of LIVING thanks every day. 


May your sacrifice of thanks-giving be transformed into a life of LIVING thanks every day. Click To Tweet


Have a blessed Thanksgiving! 

By His grace ≈

    I spent Thanksgiving today with my husband at the hospital and brought him home late this afternoon. His feeding tube got clogged up yesterday and so this morning they put another one in and I’m praying to Jesus for this one to work. I’m nervous that something might happen that I can’t handle. He also has a trach and that’s what scares me the most. But I am thankful that he’s home and I don’t feel alone anymore and I don’t have everything on my shoulders like it was. I know the Lord is working on this and I trust that things will get better, his surgery will be in 2 to 3 weeks from now. I just want him to go and have it all the cancer removed and now the doctor is talking about chemo and radiation. I have a lot to be thankful for.
    Hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving with your family, God bless Julie.
