Thanksgiving: Prayer for Others

On this day,
when family and friends gather to eat, drink
and give thanks for all that we have,
let us also remember those among us that have less to be thankful for.

While we give thanks for this food,
let us remember and pray for the farm workers
whose labors made our meal possible.

Let us remember and pray for the poultry worker, the canner,
the truck driver, the grocery store clerk, and the cooks
who made this meal and all of our meals possible.

And while we pray in thanks,
let us pray all people receive enough through their labors,
so that all can live in security,
and that no one go hungry for lack of decent wages.

Let us seek and find ways to share our nation’s bounty
with all those in need.
In Jesus’ name,
