Gratitude Blessing

Heavenly Father,
You Bless us with your constant love,
with a gaze of endearment that knows no bounds
Nor limits of affection and mercy

You swaddle us with care and protection,
Wrapping our lives, each of us known to you-
Drawn into the dearest blessings of your comfort and constancy.

Father, we bow deeply before Your works,
For all before us; all that You have done and all that You will do-
Amazes our hearts and fills us with gratitude.

You Bless us with Your sovereignty,
With the power of Your Holiness from beginning to all eternity-
Without limit, we pray, aspire and are stirred to waken to Your Kingdom.

Heavenly Father
We bow in deepest gratitude
For lives altered by the knowledge of you
By Your ever Faithfulness,
and the eternal request that calls to Reunion, Mercy and to Love.

Holy Father,

Giving Thanks causes our hearts to look back…
You have known us each in this year past.
You have blessed us with your protection and your mercy.
You have spared us from the wrath of greater evils.
And shed your Light upon all that stood in harm’s way.
Father, there is no Love stronger than yours.
And nothing in this world lasts but your Promise.
Give us hearts that are turned to You in the coming year.
Help us to be merciful to others, as we have been filled by Your Mercies.
Help us to love as we have been Loved.
We Pray, by your tenderness, Lord- increase our Faith, you are so Faithful to us.
With everlasting gratitude,

We are grateful, Dear Lord for your Blessings and the deep fullness of our Portion in You.
In Jesus Name

Amen

“Thanksgiving Prayer of Grace” from Linda Willows

OskyF500292Barry Wayne Ackerman

Lord, on this day of Thanksgiving,
we gather to pray before You Blessed by your generous provision and Presence.
We bow our heads and join hands knowing that
connecting each of us is You,
Your Life winds within, between, around and Before.

We marvel with hearts of awe at the wonder, expanse
and reach of Your Love.

We pray, that all that we are, could be emptied before you,
and given to the surrender of Your Grace.

We pray that each of our lives can be lifted and directed
to respond truthfully and fruitfully to the Will of Your Kingdom.

Lord, cause our appetites to be restrained by Your Mercy, by Your Gracious Wisdom.
Give us hearts that thirst and hunger and Your Presence.

Supply us with generous spirits that carry your Mercy
here and in places near and far.

Lord, Your Portions are so gracious!

Let Love compel each of us to the joy of “a surrendered life”.

Help us to allow each hour to shed that in us which is “can be shaken” and stand each revealed to the “unshakable” eternal, Your Truth- so that we walk In Your Name alone.

Lead us in forward as Your Faithful Servants and give us courage, boldness, and compassion.

Thank you Lord, for all that you do. Thank you for Your Care and Your Closeness!

We pray that everyone comes to know you so deeply as Love, as The One God.

We pray that they might hear their names whispered upon their Hearts and be called Home.

We pray that all of our hearts are woven into The Kingdom of God,
that joy, love, and the peace of living In You may increase in the lives of every soul that we touch, greet, love, forgive, thanks and pray for.

Thank you Lord,
for the language of Holy Love.
We appeal to Him in Prayer,
Our Father in Heaven,
In the Name of Jesus Christ.

Amen
