A Thanksgiving Prayer
Give us thankful hearts, O God, in this the season of thy Thanksgiving. May we be thankful for health and strength, for sun and rain and peace. Let us seize the day and opportunity to strive for that greatness of spirit that measures life not by its disappointments but by its possibilities, and let us ever remember that true gratitude and appreciation shows itself neither in independence nor satisfaction but passes the gift joyfully on in larger and better form. Such gratitude grant us, O Lord.
W.E.B DuBois (1868-1963)
"Give thanks to God, for God is good. The mercies of God endure forever" - Psalm 118:1
