Make a Special Prayer for Thanksgiving Day

By

This year on Thanksgiving Day, make a special prayer with these soul-stirring quotes.

George R. Hendrick
True thanksgiving means that we need to thank God for what He has done for us, and not to tell Him what we have done for Him.

Sadi, The Gulistan
Once, when my feet were bare, and I had not the means of obtaining shoes I came to the chief of Kufah in a state of much dejection, and saw there a man who had no feet. I returned thanks to God and acknowledged his mercies, and endured my want of shoes with patience

H. W. Westermayer
The pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts... nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
We will speed the day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing... Free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, I'm free at last.

Basil Carpenter
Thank God every day when you get up that you have something to do that day which must be done whether you like it or not. Being forced to work and forced to do your best will breed in you temperance and self-control, diligence and strength of will, cheerfulness and content, and a hundred virtues which the idle will never know.

Martin Rinkart
Now thank we all our God, With hearts and hands and voices;
Who wondrous things hath done, In whom this world rejoices.
Who, from our mother's arms, Hath led us on our way,
With countless gifts of love, And still is ours today.

Henry Ward Beecher
Remember God's bounty in the year. String the pearls of His favor. Hide the dark parts, except so far as they are breaking out in light! Give this one day to thanks, to joy, to gratitude!

Meister Eckhart
If the only prayer you ever say in your whole life is 'thank you', that would suffice.

E. P. Powell
Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men; but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude.

Courtland Milloy
Nothing purchased can come close to the renewed sense of gratitude for having family and friends.

Seneca
Our Creator shall continue to dwell above the sky, and that is where those on earth will end their thanksgiving.

James Smith
It is delightfully easy to thank God for the grace we ourselves have received, but it requires great grace to thank God always for the grace given to others.

Henry Melville
Praise is the best auxiliary to prayer; and he who most bears in mind what has been done for him by God will be most emboldened to supplicate fresh gifts from above.

Arthur Guiterman
So once in every year we throng
Upon a day apart,
To praise the Lord with feast and song
In thankfulness of heart

John Fitzgerald Kennedy
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

Henry Ward Beecher
Remember God's bounty in the year. String the pearls of His favor. Hide the dark parts, except so far as they are breaking out in light! Give this one day to thanks, to joy, to gratitude!

French Proverb
Gratitude is the heart's memory.

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
If we meet someone who owes us thanks, we right away remember that. But how often do we meet someone to whom we owe thanks without remembering that?

Jackie Windspear
Grace isn't a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It's a way to live.

John Greenleaf Whittier
No longer forward nor behind
I look in hope or fear;
But, grateful, take the good I find,
The best of now and here.
