Today’s Prayer: O God, you keep us waiting for the right time in which to discover who we are, where we must go, who will be with us, and what we must do. And in all of this, you keep us. Through hard questions with no easy answers; through failing where we hoped to succeed and making an impact when we felt we were useless; through the patience and the dreams and the love of others, you keep us. Thank you for the keeping time, now and forever. Amen. (A Prayer from the Iona Community Worship Book)

Today’s Prayer: O God, Creator of all, hear the prayers of your people today. Prayers that seek peace. Prayers that seek truth. Prayers that seek your love.

Today’s Blessing Prayer: Thanksgiving and Thursday greetings and blessings to all. I hope your day is starting off well. i pray that you are where you want to be or are in the process of getting there safely!
Today, my prayer of blessing will be one that I offered you last Thanksgiving.
This Thanksgiving Day I pray that you will always find the blessing of thankfulness in your life. – God of all blessings, source of all life, giver of all grace. We thank you for the gift of life: for the breath that sustains life, for the food of this earth that nurtures life, for the love of family and friends without which there would be no life.
We thank you for the mystery of creation: for the beauty that the eye can see, for the joy that the ear may hear, for the unknown that we cannot behold filling the universe with wonder, for the expanse of space that draws us beyond the definitions of our selves.
We thank you for setting us in communities: for families who nurture our becoming, for friends who love us by choice, for companions at work, who share our burdens and daily tasks, for strangers who welcome us into their midst, for people from other lands who call us to grow in understanding, for children who lighten our moments with delight, for the unborn, who offer us hope for the future.
We thank you for this day: for life and one more day to love, for opportunity and one more day to work for justice and peace, for neighbors and one more person to love and by whom be loved, for your grace and one more experience of your presence, for your promise: to be with us, to be our God, and to give salvation.
For these and all blessings, we give you thanks, eternal, loving God, through Jesus Christ we pray. Amen. May the blessing of thankfulness be with you as you journey through this Thanksgiving Day and always!
I pray that today will be filled with family, friends, food and thankfulness! Be safe today if you are traveling. Pray for peace in our families, our cities, our nations, our World and in ourselves. Peace in Christ's Passion...Fr. Paul
Today’s Prayer: Loving God of all thankfulness, your gifts of love and goodness are infinite, help us to pause this day and every day with gratitude for your kindness, mercy and love. Open our hearts to have concern for every person so that all may share your gifts. Finally help us to always recognize your gifts and return to give thanks! Amen!

Take, Lord, receive all our liberty, our memory, understanding, our entire will. Give us only your love and your grace, that's enough for us. Your love and your grace are enough for us.
Take, Lord, receive all that we have and possess. You have given all to us, now we return it. Give us only your love and your grace, that's enough for us. Your love and your grace are enough for us.
Take, Lord, receive, all is yours now. Dispose of it, wholly according to your will. Give us only your love and your grace, that's enough for us. Your love and your grace are enough for use. Amen.
(Prayer adapted from prayer by St. Ignatius Loyola and the lyrics of Fr. John Foley’s song)
