Table Graces for Thanksgiving

2I enjoyed reading through a Table Grace book  and found several Thanksgiving appropriate graces.
Here are five traditional Thanksgiving graces:

1. Bountiful God,

You have blessed us in many ways, in the beauty and richness of our land, and in the freedom we enjoy.

You have given us even greater gifts in our family who loves and cares for us and in the grace that allows us to know and believe in You.

May we be grateful for all our blessings, not just today, but every day. Bless this wonderful meal before us and each of us at this table.
We give You thanks through Jesus our Lord.   AMEN

2.  Dear Lord, today we are mindful of the countless blessings You have given us .

We are grateful for our country in which we have the freedom to worship You as we see fit Lord, we praise You for Your handiwork, for the beauty of nature, and for the enjoyment that it brings us.  As we come together to eat this food, help us to make this and every day a day of  thanksgiving to You.  We pray this through Your Son.  Amen.

3. Lord, on this day of thanksgiving, we come to YOU to praise You for all that You have so generously given us.

We know that all we have comes from You.  We pray that You will help us to not be envious of what others have, but to be humbly grateful for the blessings we possess.  Be with us now in our feast of thanksgiving, and keep us always humble in Your sight.  In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen

4. Gracious God,

It is obvious to see how much You care for us by looking at the bountiful spread on our table.

Give us the love for others to share what You have given.  Give us courage to show the love of Jesus with those who need Him, but don’t know Him.  Please bless this food before us.

5.  Psalm 100 –

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the Lands.  Serve the Lord with gladness, come into his presence with singing

K now that the Lord is God, it is he who made us and not we ourselves, we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and into his courts with praise:  be thankful unto him and bless his name.  For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endures to all generations.   Amen
