Thanksgiving Prayer

Almighty God, who has given us this good land for our heritage, we humbly ask that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of your great favor and blessing. May we always be willing to do your will. Bless our land with honorable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord and confusion in these days. Save us from pride and arrogance.

Save us from every evil way. Defend our liberties. Fashion us into one grateful and thankful people, even though we have come from many lands.

Fill those with your spirit of wisdom, those in whom we entrust the authority of government. May there be justice and peace at home, and through obedience to your words may we show forth Thy praise to the nations. In this time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness and in the day of peril or suffering may our trust of you, Lord, not waver or fail. You are our only hope.

All we ask through Christ Jesus.   Amen
