Thanksgiving Prayers and Sayings

Thanksgiving Prayers for you to use on this holiday. Some families have a traditional prayer or poem that they read at dinner. But if you need one, you can find one here.

Your Thanksgiving prayer can be as simple as that child's grace most of us learned as children.

God is Good
God is Great
Let us Thank Him For Our Food

This prayer gives thanks and it is easy to remember and very simple, but it conveys gratitude.

Thanksgiving Sayings

Thanksgiving Sayings can be beautiful, simple, thankful or funny. Read some of my favorites:

  • "Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."~~~Melody Beattie

  • "What we're really talking about is a wonderful day set aside on the fourth Thursday of November when no one diets. I mean, why else would they call it Thanksgiving?"~~~Erma Bombeck

  • "Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence." ~~~Erma Bombeck

  • "If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice."~~~Meister Eckhart

  • "He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has."~~~Epictetus

  • "Who does not thank for little will not thank for much."~~~Estonian proverb

  • "As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."~~~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

  • "O Lord that lends me life, Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness."~~~William Shakespeare

  • And I have saved the most thought provoking Thanksgiving saying for last..."The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving."~~~H.U. Westermayer

I love the Thanksgiving holiday. I like the Thanksgiving activities for kids I come up with year after year. I like the Thanksgiving prayers we say. I like the special and distinctive aromas that take over the house. The once a year food menu, those delicious root vegetables, the fall dessert menu, the stuffing and favorite and don't forget the cranberry. The entire family over for a wonderful meal and some fun games after...unless you are a football family, then it's game time on TV.

The Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, although with satellite and cable we can see lots of parades. Many people in my area go over to New York the evening before Thanksgiving and watch the hustle and bustle of the parade workers who are inflating the balloons. This process goes on til late in the night. And then many people go over to see the parade on Thanksgiving Day. It's a big deal here on the East Coast.

What do you say as your Thanksgiving Prayers? Do you have a parade in your town? What is your favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal? Tell us your favorite family Thanksgiving recipe...Let's Talk Turkey!
