A Thanksgiving Prayer

With humbled hearts, Our Father, we come to you this day,
Expressing heartfelt gratitude for blessings sent our way
*
We ask you to forgive us for thoughtless word and deed:
Those times when self or arrogance your kingdom did impede
*
We pray your help to lift a friend who shadowed by some need:
With faltering step is struggling: it's on his behalf we plead.
*
May our hands be like yours to each soul we touch today:
Your help, your hope, your comfort shown in all we do and say
*
May golden words of healing upon our lips be found
Our tongues the ministers of peace where hatred does abound
*
This generous outpouring; the love that you have showed:
Our lives are overflowing with the goodness you've bestowed
*
We praise your name forever, on you we do depend,
We're thankful only, alway, to You, our God, our Friend
*
