A Prayer of Thanksgiving from Neighbor by Neighbor

 

When I consider the humble dwellings of my neighbors’ homes,

I thank you Lord for warmth and shelter.

When I consider my neighbors who need financial help to keep water running from

their tap, I thank you for the simple gift of water.

When I consider those who are alone and without one friend,

I pray that our fellowship would grow and extend outside our circles.

When I consider the bounty of food on our Thanksgiving tables,

I pray for your abundance to multiply to provide for the multitude.

When I consider our neighbors suffering in mind and body,

I pray for your presence to heal and comfort.

When I consider the experience of scarcity,

I pray for your Holy Spirit to come in fullness.
