Prayers of Thanksgiving

to Songs of Thankfulness and Praise

In Gratitude for God's Blessings

O Lord and Vivifier, Your grace has achieved for us all that You had spoken and promised. Grant us access to the place of Your peace. For You are our Vivifier, You are our Consoler, You are our life Remedy, You are our Standard of victory. Blessed are we, O Lord, because we have known You! Blessed are we, because we have believed in You! Blessed are we, because we bear Your wounds and the sign of Your blood on our countenances! Blessed are we, because You are our great hope! Blessed are we, because You are our God forever! Amen.

Lord, I give You thanks for dying on the cross for my sins. Amen.

O God, I offer praise and thanksgiving for favors granted and prayers, answered especially those obtained through the intercession of (N.,), who have faithfully and generously brought my petitions before You. Help me continually to see the workings of your grace and blessing in my life and strive always to live by the example of your Son, Jesus Christ, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and all the saints of heaven, especially those for whose intercession I have prayed.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

    God our Father, source of all health, be near to those who suffer in the time of weakness and pain; as You have for us in our hours of need, relieve them of their burden and heal them, if it be your will. Give peaceful sleep to those who need rest for soul and body, and be with them in their hours of silence.  Bless those who know not what another day will bring.  Make them ready for whatever it may be:  whether they must stand, or sit or be confined, grant them a strong spirit.  Inspire with Your love those who bring healing and care to the suffering.  May they bestow Your gifts of health and strength wherever they go. We offer up this prayer to You today in thanksgiving and love for the blessings You have bestowed upon us so many times in our lives, especially now in these hours of need. We also want to praise You for and ask your blessing for this Community in Christ you have given unto us. Thank You, Dear Lord, for bringing us all into the healing light of Your everlasting Love. Your Prayer Warriors are true and mighty. Dear Lord, we come to You to ask blessings for each and everyone of these Warriors. Lord, we pray You continue to love, guide, and protect this Community In Christ, who has so eagerly given of themselves. Grant this prayer, through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Thanksgiving for the Gift of Life

Heavenly Father, You are the giver of ALL life. I thank You, Lord, for the gift of life which You have given me. Teach me to recognize the sacredness of my life. Teach me to honor the sacredness of others. Remove from me the selfishness that prevents me from experiencing the majesty of each soul. Help me to recover from the indignities that I have suffered and which have diminished my self respect. Restore in me the conscious understanding that Your Holy Spirit lives in me and that all my actions and thoughts should reflect the holiness of Your indwelling Presence. Sanctify my life, Heavenly Father, that I might be a blessing to all whom I meet. Let this world be a brighter place because You reached out to others through my simple acts of kindness. Help me to believe in my own goodness that I may resist temptation and celebrate Your gift of life this day. Amen.

The Blessings I've Received

I have never spoken with my God In person, face to face,
Yet deep within my heart I know I was saved by His loving grace.
I speak with Him through prayer And can feel His presence near.
I know that He is with me When my gloomy days are here.
I long for Him to hold me In His loving arms one day,
But until then I'll be content To whisper, " I love You, " as I pray.
What a glad and joyous day it was When in Him I first believed.
How can I ever thank Him For the blessings I've received?
God has done so many wonderful things, But the ones that I treasure the most
Are the gifts of love that He gave to us - His Son, Jesus, and the Holy Ghost.

~~ by Shirley Hile Powell

Enter his gates with thanksgiving
And his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him, bless his name!
For the Lord is good;
His steadfast love endures forever,
And his faithfulness to all generations.

Psalm 100

Heavenly Father, we praise you and thank you for the countless blessings and mercies you have shown us.
You have blessed America as a refuge for Pilgrims from all corners of the earth and from every era.
You have strengthened us in time of trial and held us up in the face of adversity.
You have granted us this beautiful and bountiful refuge.
You have granted us the fruits of freedom, of worship, and hard work.
Remind us to be humble in our abundance and to remember the sacrifice of those who came before us and who so trusted in you.
Let their example remind us to renew that trust, to always be thankful, to always be obedient to your hand and to be no less strong in our values.

In this harvest moment, we give thanks to you O Lord, for family and friends, for health and country, and for the gift of life.
As we gather around our family tables on this Thanksgiving,
We at Autom will "ask the Lord's blessing in all that we do".
We ask for this blessing for each other, for our nation, and for you,
Our customers, Our dear friends in Christ.

~~Paul and Tom DiGiovanni
