Just wanted to share this prayer of Thanksgiving with you.
In one of the Thanksgiving episodes of Father Knows Best, Jim Anderson, the imitable father, offers this prayer at the end of the episode as the family holds hands around the kitchen table…
“Oh, Lord, we give Thee thanks from the depths of our humble hearts, for all the blessings Thou hast seen fit to bestow on us.
We thank Thee for the food which graces our table and a roof which covers our heads.
We thank Thee for the privilege of living as free men in a country which respects our freedom and our personal rights to worship and think and speak as we choose.
We thank Thee for making us a family, for giving us sincerity and understanding.
But most of all, dear Lord, we thank Thee for giving us the greatest gift a family may know…the gift of love for one another…Amen.”
And the gift of knowing and loving You, Lord. In Jesus’ Name…amen!
However you spend this Thanksgiving, and whatever surrounds you at this time of year, may your heart be filled with praise and thanksgiving, if for no other reason than you are saved by grace and filled with the living Word of God.
Thanksgiving blessings to you!
Giving thanks for you all…Lynn
