We have created a Thanksgiving Grace for you to use at Thanksgiving dinner, or whenever you eat with friends and family.

Thanksgiving Grace

Let us take turns naming the gifts for which we are most thankful this day:

Each person may name a gift in his/her heart or aloud.

For all these gifts, we lift up our hearts and we pray.

All: Thanks be to God.

God blesses each of us around this table. May we bless one another with love and service.

Jesus blesses us with food that satisfies the heart’s hunger. May we make room for all in our human family.

The Holy Spirit stirs within us a desire for human harmony. May we make room for all in our human family.

Thank you this Thanksgiving Day for the people who grow this food, the people who prepare it, and the people who share it here today.

All: Amen. Thanks be to God!

 Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Good Ground Press!
