Happy Thanksgiving



A Thanksgiving Prayer

A Thanksgiving Prayer
In gratitude this Thanksgiving Day


Happy Thanksgiving


In gratitude for your service to the Church, I share this prayer on Thanksgiving Day.
 

Jesus in My Heart

 Today, I pray that my heart shall be open
and that I will always have Jesus in my heart.
 
As I welcome all with kindness,
I am blessed and ever-thankful.
 
May my life reflect my Christian faith,
as I share God's Word and gifts.
 
May I never be too busy or too hardened
to have mercy on those in need.
 
May my actions inspire faith and joy
throughout my community and in my home.
 
May I never be too proud to pray
and invite God's grace into my life.
 
May I never forget all that Christ gave
so we could know the power of forgiveness.
 
Today, I pray that my heart shall be open
and that I will always have Jesus in my heart.
 
May you have a blessed Thanksgiving with your family and friends.

Blessings,

Thadeus Achan
