HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Parents and Guardians,I pray that your family has a blessed Thanksgiving with God’s love and peace. I have provided some prayers for your family to say together as you gather around your table. Our students are very familiar with prayer before meals, so I encourage you to ask them to take part in leading prayer. We miss you here at OLPH and can’t wait for the day we return, Happy Thanksgiving.

Blessings,

Mrs. C.

Prayer Before Meals

Bless us, Oh Lord, and these thy gifts, which we are about to receive, from thy bounty, through Christ, Our Lord.

Amen.

To remember those less fortunate

Help Me-Thanksgiving Day Prayer

O God, when I have food, help me to remember the hungry;
When I have work, help me to remember the jobless;
When I have a home, help me to remember those who have no home at all;
When I am without pain, help me to remember those who suffer,
And remembering, help me to destroy my complacency;
bestir my compassion, and be concerned enough to help;
Byword and deed, those who cry out for what we take for granted.

Amen.

— Samuel F. Pugh

To acknowledge God’s gifts

Countless Blessings

Lord, on this special day of thankfulness,
we thank you not only for the delicious food,
lovingly prepared and presented,
but also for special gifts
you’ve given to this family —
loved ones we cherish dearly,
a comfortable place to live,
the beauty that surrounds us,
material pleasures,
health, spiritual wealth,
and so much more.
How can we show our gratitude for
the countless blessings you’ve provided?
We thank you for giving us clear direction,
through your holy word
on how to show our appreciation,
by obeying Your commands
and by loving and serving our neighbors.
Thank you, Lord.

Amen

— Joanna Fuchs
