Thanksgiving Prayer

This prayer was sent in a card to Catholics in the Diocese of Springfield, MA from Bishop Mitch Rosanski. I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!

O Gracious God,

We give you thanks for your overflowing generosity to us. 
Thank you for our home and family and friends,
especially for those gathered here today. 
Thank you for the blessings of the food we eat  
and especially for this feast today.
Thank you for our health, our work, and our play.

Open our hearts to your love so we may help those who are hungry, alone, sick, and suffering war and violence. We gratefully remember too, our family members and loved ones who are not here with us physically and celebrate the gift which they have been and continue to be for us.
May we live this and every day grateful for all that has been given to us.

We make this prayer as we do all things through Christ our Lord,

Amen.
