My Thanksgiving Day Prayer

Holy One, first, thank You for You and Your love that even allows me to approach You.

Thank You, My Lord Jesus, for coming into this world, into my world to offer me full connection again to Creator Abba. Thank You for Your living words of grace, truth, freedom and fullness of life. Thank You for Your incomprehensible, extravagant humility in giving Your Beautiful, Holy Self over to death in my stead, for the forgiveness of my sins, for the renewing of my soul.

Lord, thank You for You. I can only begin to understand Your love for me, Your love for every person, in the smallest of ways. Yet what I know and grasp overwhelms me. You are God. Creator of everything — everything I see, everyting I can’t see, everything in my little world, everything in the universe. You are Creator of all things “in all their vast array.” -Genesis 2:1 You are Sovereign over all that exists.

And yet, Holy One, You are here with me…now…in my little space filling my mind, my body and my spirit with a sense of Your presence, Your love, Your intimacy.

Holy One, Sovereign and Intimate One, thank You with all that I am. Thank You for life now and the hope, the assurance, You give of being with You for for all eternity. It is too much for me to truly comprehend, but I believe You and I trust Your unfailing love with my every breath. Thank You, Lord.

Happy Thanksgiving Day, my Lord and my God. I love You. You love me. Thank You.

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
