Thanksgiving Day Prayer

Gracious God,

In the events of this year,
we see how fragile our lives truly are.

Daily, we are faced with a choice
to be people who live in cynicism and despair,
or people who live in gratitude and thanksgiving.

On this day, we choose gratitude over despair,
and lift our hearts in thanksgiving to you,
the one who is the source of all good things.

Thank you
for family and friends,
for life and for love,
and for the beauty that we would see
if we would just open our eyes to you.

Amen
