O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever. Psalm 136
  
A BLESSED THANKSGIVING TO ALL THE CHURCH!
  
The litany below was used during worship on Thanksgiving Day in my home church throughout my childhood. Precious memories! I’m sharing it here for use as a table prayer in your homes on Thanksgiving Day before the meal is served. No one eats alone…God is with us! Invite others to your meal. Make copies of the litany for everyone! Give thanks for faith, health, memories, blessings, every season of life, and the promise of heaven.
  
For the season of planting and the season of harvesting,
We thank you, O Lord.
For seasons of laughter and seasons of tears,
We thank you, O Lord.
For times of sociability and times of solitude,
We thank you, O Lord.
For the blessings of receiving and the fulfillment of giving,
We thank you, O Lord.
For the gift of pleasure and the warning of pain,
We thank you, O Lord.
For the exuberance of youth and the wisdom of maturity,
We thank you, O Lord.
For the joys of victory and the lessons of defeat,
We thank you, O Lord.
For the satisfaction of work completed and the challenge of tasks yet undone,
We thank you, O Lord.
For the peace of forgiveness and the restlessness of imperfection,
We thank you, O Lord.
For a time to anticipate and a time to appreciate,
We thank you, O Lord. Amen
 
Giving thanks with you in Christ,
Pastor Doug Heagy
