Come Before Him With Thanksgiving

By November 28, 2013

Follow me on:

Every year on Thanksgiving Day I like to post this poem, A Thanksgiving Day Prayer. I wrote it to share with Christian families around the globe—wherever Thanksgiving is celebrated.

Thanksgiving Day Prayer
Heavenly Father, on Thanksgiving Day
We bow our hearts to You and pray.
We give You thanks for all You've done
Especially for the gift of Jesus, Your Son.
For beauty in nature, Your glory we see
For joy and health, friends and family,
For daily provision, Your mercy and care
These are the blessings You graciously share.
So today we offer this response of praise
With a promise to follow You all of our days.

--Mary Fairchild

This year, I'd also like to invite you to share your favorite Thanksgiving memories, traditions, and verses:
