As we prepare for Thanksgiving, we pray with the writer of the Book of Sirach in the Hebrew Scriptures:
And now, bless the God of all, who has done wondrous things on earth;
Who fosters people's growth from their mother's womb, and fashions them all.
May God grant you joy of heart and may peace abide among you;
May God's goodness towards us endure to deliver us in all our days.
