Thanksgiving Blessing

I put this blessing out to be used for any among you who would like to use a written text rather than spontaneous prayer for this special occasion. May you, those next to you or near and dear to your heart, have a healthy, meaningful, fun and festive Thanksgiving. With my prayers for our Geranium Farmers far and wide, Joanna, deacon, The Geranium Farm, Thanksgiving 2007.


For this earth and your guidance to use its resources rightly, we pray;
Give us grateful hearts.
For the leaders of the world, this nation, our state, our community, we pray;
Give us grateful hearts.
For farmers, ranchers, growers, packers, processors and drivers, we pray;
Give us grateful hearts.
For our friends and loved ones present, absent from us or departed, we pray;
Give us grateful hearts.
For those who have prepared this feast for our partaking, we pray;
Give us grateful hearts.
For the homeless, helpless, poor, weak, jobless and our enemies, we pray;
Turn our gratitude into love and action.
And to you, Master of the Feast, Creator and Source of Abundance and Love,
we ask you to bless this food for our use and joy, strengthening us to
do Your will at all times in all places through Christ our Lord. Amen.
