I am so pleased that we have a day set aside for giving thanks. In our fast pace, tech world, our ways and minds think more on what can I receive and what can I get. It is refreshing to say thanks for what I am given, who is special in my life, and I am blessed to be who I am. I realize commercialism has tried to capture this truly blessed day, but we actually make the choice to participate. So I remain thankful for a day of celebrations and prayers! I understand that there are people in the world that think if they do and carry out horrendous acts of cruelty that will stop us from celebrating these types of days in many countries, but I truly believe as human beings we will all stand together and these people will know that all of our prayers in our various countries will block out and remove these types of injustice in this world. Just remember prayer can happen any where and any day. Prayers can be made for anyone anywhere. I would hope and pray that every day and every part of every day we experience thanksgiving! No one can take away our minds of thought and prayer. So today is truly a thanksgiving!


 I come to You in the morning.

The sun is rising and the sky turns blue as the light hits it.

The outside awakens with birds of all types.

I ask for direction in the day.

I ask for you to focus my mind.

I give thanks for the drink and bread you provide.

I give thanks for the house to have the nourishment in.

The morning speaks back with Your hope.


I come to You in the heat of the day.

When it is busy and rushing.

I ask for strength to make it through time.

I ask to be used for your work.

I ask to be a blessing for those I meet.

I thank you for a job.

The mid-day speaks back from You through others.


I come to You in the quiet of the night.

It is still and dark.

Comforting and safe.

I ask for safety and Your forgiveness.

I ask for the protection of those I love.

I thank You for all the gifts I have received that day.

The night answers back with Your peace.


I come to You every moment.

To hear and see where I have been and where I am.

I come to You and ask for blessings.

I thank You for blessings already given.

I come to You and thank You for talking back to me in my head.

I ask forgiveness.

I ask for love.

I worship You.

I pray.

I want to thank you for sharing your thanksgiving with me! I am so incredibly blessed to be able to share with you. My prayer for you and your family is peace, safety, and love. May you be filled every day with people that love you and have prayers for you! I have been able to so enjoy my family, and I wish the same for you. Our prayers go out to France and other countries in the world where people are being hurt. We wish their families may have peace and experience love from all of us. We pray that they may be lifted up beyond the evil that does exist and be held safe within our arms. And for those that make the choice on this pathway of cruelty, we ask forgiveness and mercy because their souls will have to carry this burden for the rest of their lives. “Happy Thanksgiving” every day because we are a blessed human race.
