A family that prays together, stays together.

Traditional Thanksgiving prayers kick off your feast with food for the soul. The best things about these traditional Thanksgivings prayers are that they’re easy to memorize and create memories to be shared by the whole family. Many American households designate a family member each year to say grace over (or bless) the food before eating. This year, it may very well be your turn; here are two traditional prayers you might want to memorize.

Thanksgiving Dinner Prayer

O Lord,

How full is this world of your unending creativity.

How astounding is creation in all its variety.

How breathtaking is new life, growth, and transformation.

How wonderful is your provision for us your children!

This day, we celebrate your great goodness with thankful hearts and joyful lives.

Amen.

Thanks Giving Prayer

Lord, thank you for walking with us through the seasons of our lives.

For the winter, when we are held safe in your arms through the darkness.

For the hope of spring, as we are filled with new promise and life.

For summer time, full of warmth and color

And for autumn days as leaves fall to seed new growth.

You are always with us.

Amen.
