20 Best Thanksgiving Prayers

Be inspired by our collection of Thanksgiving prayers from a selection of books across the web.

It’s that beautiful time of year again! I have to say. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. The leaves have all turned brown and beautiful, and fall is in full swing. The beauty surrounding us is a perfect example of why we need this time of year to be thankful for the big guy up top. We should aim to thank God at least once a day for our blessings, but I think it’s good that we do it publicly once a year among our friends and family. Let’s face it, we have had a pretty tough year regarding world problems. Many people in Ukraine are suffering, and climate change is at its worst, destroying homes and livelihoods worldwide, and the cost of living has skyrocketed to unprecedented levels.

We indeed have a lot to worry about right now, but also, we have SO much to be thankful for. It only takes me a fleeting thought to realize that I have massive amounts to be grateful for. I have a roof over my head, a beautiful family, and supporting friends around me. My heart is with all the people suffering this year. People have had their lives turned upside down due to war and destruction across the world. And my prayers this year and every year are focused on all the people who are not so lucky.

I could never thank the Lord enough with just words alone. I am immensely thankful for everything I have this year, and I know that God has blessed me in ways I can’t begin to imagine. So this year, let us keep other people in our hearts and prayers, and at the same time, let us be truly thankful for all the Lord has done for us. His love is the reason we are all still here.
