Thanksgiving Prayer

when-is-thanksgiving-dayHere’s a suggestion for your Thanksgiving Prayer, as a family read Psalm 136 together.  Start with one person reading the themed phrase and the rest of the family read aloud the phrase “His faithful love endures forever.”  Then repeat that for each verse.  Below I have included the text (with a few verses omitted – because it was specific to God providing a way out of Egypt for Israel) for you to use at your thanksgiving table.  Happy Thanksgiving – God’s faithful love endures forever!
