Link: Top 100 Thanksgiving Prayers for the Day of Thanksgiving or any Day. Americans spend a lot of time assessing blame, worrying about the future, criticizing the present, and chasing money, fame and power. I love having a day that reminds us that life itself, whatever our circumstance is something to be thankful for. These prayers acknowledge that we owe our very existence to something or someone else. Call it God, or a Prime Mover. I never understood why it was so difficult to believe that matter, and humans, and whatever we and our universe are had to come from something. The initial or prime entity can be called God or whatever; but, it had to be. Pray today for those less fortunate, for those in combat, for those in need, and give thanks for what you have.
