Prayer for Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving Day Prayer

O God, I am thankful that I have food;
help me to remember the hungry.
I am thankful that I have work,
help me to remember the jobless.
who have no home at all.
If I am without pain, help me to remember those who are sick and suffering.
As I remember and name the hungry, the jobless, the homeless, the suffering,
help destroy my complacency;
and stir up my compassion,
so that I am motivated enough to help
those people who are desperate for what I can often take for granted.
