A Fruitful New Way Begins—In Thanksgiving

In thanksgiving, always, let us pray…

Dear Lord:
Today we give thanks for our many blessings, as we pray for those in need.
We give thanks for our family and friends, as we pray for those who are lonely.
We give thanks for our freedoms, as we pray for those who are oppressed.
We give thanks for our good health, as we pray for those who are ill.
We give thanks for our comfort and prosperity, as we share our blessings with others.
On this day of thanksgiving, may the love of God enfold us, the peace of God dwell within us, and the joy of God uplift us.
Amen.” [Thanksgiving Prayer by St. Vincent Meals On Wheels; per catholic.org]
