Saying prayers is an important way to show your gratitude to God
A prayer to bless your Thanksgiving table.
Dear Father, on this Thanksgiving Day,
We bow our heads and humbly pray.
And offer our gratitude for all you’ve done,
Especially for Jesus Christ, your son.
We pause to offer this prayer giving praise,
And promise to worship you now and always.
