A Prayer of Thanksgiving

This came in the mail to me on a card from Glenmary Home Missions

A Prayer of Thanksgiving

God, source and giver of all things,
we give you thanks on this
Thanksgiving Day for the beauty of the whole of creation.

We give you thanks for the blessings
of family and friends: both those
gathered around this table and those
who are present only in our hearts.

We give you thanks for this food,
prepared by loving hands, and
for the graces you provide to nourish
our bodies, minds and hearts
so that we might better serve you.

Help us to be faithful stewards/
of all that has been given us.
May we reflect that which
we have received to all we meet,
especially the less fortunate in our midst.

Amen.
