Did you know there is only one Psalm that is called “A Psalm for Thanksgiving”? And what a perfect Thanksgiving Day prayer it is. Take time to read this beautiful Psalm and be truly thankful this Thanksgiving and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family on this beautiful day that the Lord has made.
“Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth.
Serve the LORD with gladness;
Come before Him with joyful singing.
Know that the LORD Himself is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving
And His courts with praise.
Give thanks to Him, bless His name.
For the LORD is good;
His lovingkindness is everlasting
And His faithfulness to all generations.”
My prayer for you and your family today is that you will be found truly joyful, glad, thankful and singing praise unto our LORD for He Himself is a good God and we are the sheep of His pasture.
Happy Thanksgiving Day!
One last Bonus Way to be Truly Thankful This Thanksgiving
Volunteer to deliver Thanksgiving meals to people in need within your community.
For several years, my children and I volunteered at a large church that delivered paper bags full of the items needed for a Thanksgiving dinner to needy inner-city families. Many people were concerned that as a mom with young children, I should not do this alone. However, I was never met by anyone who would harm me or my children. Quite opposite! I was met by some of the most truly grateful and thankful people I have ever known. To deliver a meal and have a chance to pray for each of these precious families has given me enough thankfulness to last an entire lifetime.
