A Thanksgiving Prayer For Your Dinner Guests
November 6, 2009 · Print This Article
This Thanksgiving prayer card was inspired by a poem by Grace Noll Crowell (1877 – 1967). She published over thirty-five books of poetry, stories for children, and poem and prose devotions. One of her most famous poems is named, “Because I have Been Given Much.” In 1975, Phillip Landgrave (1935 – ) composed the music and it has been included in the hymnals of many denominations. In our church meetings, we sing it frequently.
I thought it might be a thoughtful addition to your Thanksgiving, so I placed the prayer on a card among a leaf design so you could download it and make copies for your guests. Simply run the Free Thanksgiving Prayer on photo paper. Place the prayer on or next to your guest’s dinner plate. At the end of the day, your guest can take it home to display on their fridge or elsewhere as a little reminder.

Thanksgiving is certainly a time for reflection and gratitude of blessing received this past year. I want to express my gratitude to my readers by giving you this Thanksgiving Prayer to enjoy and use.
P.S. In addition to the Thanksgiving Prayer, there is a Fall bookmark for you to use in a special book. (I had extra room at the side of the card design… just a little extra bonus.)
