Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, we humbly bow before Thee this Thanksgiving Day to express gratitude for all we have received at Thy hand. It is with grateful hearts that we acknowledge Thy hand in all things and recognize that Thou hast promised us Eternal Life with Thee through the Atonement of thy Son, Jesus Christ, and our obedience to Thy commandments.
We express gratitude to Thee for the blessing of faith, the faith of our parents and grandparents which taught us that all blessings flow from Thee. We are grateful for family which provides love and companionship through the joys and sorrows of this life. We are thankful for our posterity and pray that they may also be assured of the blessings of liberty that we have enjoyed throughout our lives through the sacrifice of so many. Many of these are from our own family who answered and continue to answer the call of freedom as they donned uniforms of service or served in the quite ranks at home praying and waiting for their loved ones safe return. We are grateful for a bounteous harvest with which to provide for our needs and for charitable hearts that we might serve Thee and minister to the needs of our neighbor, who may be sick or afflicted, poor or needy, or who may have cause to mourn. We earnestly desire to be lights of faith, hope, and service in this world of darkness.
We express gratitude to Thee for the blessings of Freedom and Liberty within our Constitutional Republic. We ask Thee, O Father, to hear now our prayer for an ungodly nation where many have turned from Thee. Deliver us from deceitful and unjust politicians and send us Statesmen who will honor their oath of office and defend the Constitutional Republic which Thou hast caused to be established. Cleanse our land of the ills of a Socialistic-Progressive Ideology that destroys initiative and self-reliance through covetous greed; that bends equal-justice, or opportunity, into social-justice which enslaves our citizens; that creates attitudes of entitlement that rob Thy children of their unalienable right to Liberty; that bend private ownership, Christian charity and brotherly love into the compulsion of state redistribution. Cleanse us from unwise and unsound fiscal policies and laws which deny entrepreneurs and risk takers of the just reward of their labors and have burdened our nation with a $23 Trillion debt. Cleanse us from the genocide of abortion which has murdered millions of unborn children of God destroying their unalienable right to Life.
Help us, O God, to have the fortitude, courage and faith of our ancestors, our fathers and mothers, they who built, with Thy aid, the greatest nation the world has ever known, a nation that has stood as a beacon of hope to all those chained by tyranny and oppression throughout the world. Grant us now the will and determination to make the hard choices which confront us to restore our Constitutional Republic to that which our Founding Fathers gave us through Thy divine providence. Grant Almighty God, through Thine divine help that we, as a nation, might once again “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.”
In the blessed name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of the World. Amen.
May God Bless and Save the United States of America —
Our Constitutional Republic !
