Prayer on Thanksgiving Day

Heavenly Father,
this is the day set aside to give you thanks
for your surpassing goodness to human beings.
You have created us in your own image
and set us over your wonderful creation.
You chose a people to be your own
and to carry your wonderful creation.
You chose a people to be your own
and to carry your message of salvation to all people.
You carried out your redemption in Jesus your Son,
and his saving fruits are passed on to every generation
to all who believe that by his death and resurrection
Jesus has given them a new freedom in his Spirit.
Let me give you proper thanks for your blessings -
those I am aware of
as well as those that I habitually take for granted.
And let me learn to use them according to your will.
