Deuteronomy 8:7-17 – Thanksgiving

we have set aside this day of thanks-giving,
because we sometimes have difficulty remembering
to live our thanks-giving.
We sometimes have difficulty remembering
to be thanks-giving.
So – thank you.
For – everything!
Open our hearts to realize
where thanks need to be given.
Open our mouths to share the words.
Open our hearts to be your love.
As disciples of Jesus, we ask it.
May it be so.

  1. Hi Richard. Thanks for this. I was feeling a bit dried out, trying to “liturgize” for the service this Sunday. I’m going to use this, and trust that the Spirit will use it too, to help me lead us in our thanks-giving.
