Thanksgiving Dinner Prayer

For Use At The Thanksgiving Day Meal


Thanksgiving is an official holiday in the United States. We give thanks for the blessings we have been given, and gather with our families for a meal, usually consisting of turkey, with some side dishes like dressing, corn, and rolls. Thanksgiving is always celebrated in the US on the fourth Thursday of Novemeber. The holiday is loosely based on a meal between the Wampanoag tribe and the Pilgrims in New England.

Thanksgiving Meal Prayer and Blessing
Father of all grace,
we give you thanks
for the abundance that we now enjoy.
We ask your blessing
upon this food,
and upon all those present,
and for those who have worked so hard
to provide us with this meal.
We give you thanks also
for the true food from heaven,
our Lord Jesus Christ,
through whom all abundance comes. Amen
