We think of the Pilgrims, Lord,
and the Native Americans who helped
and provided for them,
through an instinctive kindness.
And we give thanks
for our country, its heritage,
and all its natural resources.
We give thanks for turkey,
pumpkin pie, and cranberry sauce.
Lord, we have been greatly blessed.
Thank you for all your
gifts and care for us. Amen.
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.
