Spiritual Sundays ~Thanksgiving Prayer

A Thanksgiving Prayer

Dear Father in Heaven

Please lend me Your ear

'Cause I've got a prayer

You'll be happy to hear.

Lord, there's no request list

This time when I pray

I just want to give thanks

This Thanksgiving Day.

First, I want to thank You

For gifts from above:

Your unending mercy,

Your undeserved love.

And thank You for sending

Your Son down to earth,

For now those in Jesus

Can have second birth.

Lord, thank You for saving

Your children from Hell,

And giving Your Spirit

Who comes to indwell.

And thank You for choosing me

To be Your own,

For now that You're in me

I'm never alone.

Lord, thanks for forgiving me

When I'm untrue,

And last, but not least, Father,

Thank You for You!

My attempt at capturing fall this year is weak in comparison to some of the hues I’ve seen on blogs in the east! I tried!

Thank you for stopping by and visiting me! I wish you a love-filled Sunday. For more inspiration this day, log on to Spiritual Sundays, with Charlotte & Ginger.


  1. This was a beautiful prayer, thank youfor blessing me with it. I think your pic is beautiful, but I share your dilemma. Not ever really "Fall looking" in Caifornia. Have a wonderful week..Blessings to you, Debbie

  2. Beautiful prayr, we do have so much to be thankful for. I think your fall picture is pretty. I live in CA. so I'll take any fall picture I can get.

  3. This prayer is beautiful in its simplicity...nothing fancy or complicated, just the truth! Thanks for sharing - and your Fall photo is just right!


  4. Love this prayer Mary and especially that last line...

    Thank you for YOU :)

    I feel that way about you and about our Father!!

    Have a blessed Sunday Mary

  5. The prayer/poem is beautiful. I feel very grateful...He really does make a difference. Sarah

  6. I love prayers that just say "thank You" and nothing else. How often do we do that? We always seem to put all of our worries on His table instead of enjoying what He already had prepared and given as a feast.
    Never underestimate your ability to capture that picture. Because the differences make it all beautiful and interesting. [I'll always leave nice comments because I know you're a great "shooter"]....Just kiddingggg....
    Your place is so cozy when I come and I leave always with a "smile". Love you sister and have a blessed weekend.

  7. Oh, I did enjoy that prayer. Thank you!

  8. Thank you for posting this beautiful Thanksgiving prayer. We have so much to be thankful for. This is my favorite time of year and I so enjoyed seeing the fall colors in New England. You certainly don't see that where we live. It looks pretty much the same year 'round. I do love it here though.

  9. Wonderful prayer. Thanks for posting.

  10. This sweet prayer is perfect ... even for the youngest family members to memorize and take part in the blessing!

    Have a blessed new week!


  11. Beautiful Spiritual Sunday post. I am glad to be able to come here and find your beautiful smiling face. Thank you for your continued encouragement and prayers.
    Blessings, andrea

  12. Beautiful, Mary! Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful Sunday.


  13. I enjoyed your prayer of thanks. It's so good to meet another grandma. Have a great week, Doylene

  14. A lovely prayer and picture ~

  15. What a beautiful prayer poem Mary! This season does make our hearts more seemingly thankful!! Especially, for Him!!

  16. Mary,
    What a wonderful prayer......We are truly blessed beyond measure - Thank you Jesus!

    Oh, you know I can totally relate to you on the Fall thing - Those of us in AZ appreciate any color other than brown and green we can get - don't we! LOL!

    Praying for you and yours!

    Sweet Blessings!
