When we have food, help us to remember those who are hungry
When we have work, help us to remember those who are jobless
When we are in our warm homes together, please help us to remember those who are without a home
When we sit together and look upon the smiles of our friends and loved ones, help us to remember those who are friendless and have no families to go home to;
Let us be thankful for all that we have but help tear down our walls of complacency and stir in us compassion for those who have far less than us and help us to reach out in words or in deeds to those who are lost and marginalized.
Let us not forget to show our love and our thanks to all who care and love us, for all that they do for us no matter how little or big the deed. Help us to show them how much they mean to us.
Help us Lord to be thankful each and every day of our lives and not just one day a year.
What are you thankful for? Please let us know!
