Thanksgiving Prayer 2014


Dear One,

My prayer for you today is that you would be surrounded by family and friends, that love and laughter would abound, and that His presence would abide with you.  May you receive His strength and grace today in all that you do. May your heart be open to receive the blessings of those who surround you.

For those who are hurting, my prayer is that you would find comfort in His arms today, as He draws you close and reminds you that He is with you. May the memories of those you love who have gone home to heaven, or cannot be with you today, bring joy to your heart.

For the one who is alone, unable to travel, or far away from family and friends, my prayer is that you would look up into the eyes of Jesus and know how very much you are loved and valued. May you open your heart today to receive His love.  May you allow Him to heal your broken heart. May peace and joy abound in your home.

[Tweet “May you enjoy the simple pleasures found at the table of the Lord, where His abundance awaits you.”]

Thank you for being here. You bless my life tremendously with your presence.

    Thanks Barbie for this prayer. My prayer for you:

    “Even though Barbie has to walk through deep times of need, please Lord, lift up her head to You. You are always with her. Let your rod and Your staff comfort her. Prepare a table before Barbie in the presence of her enemies. And let Your “steadfast mercy” been with her all the days of her life. So that she can say: “my cup runneth over.”
