A Thanksgiving Prayer for Grieving Families

Dear Father who art in Heaven...
Please join our family on this Thanksgiving day
And bless each one as we sit down to pray
As we remember those who have joined You above
So dearly missed and deeply loved.

Please provide us strength on this Thanksgiving day
Bless us with memories of those faraway...
Please grant patience to family and friends as we grieve
And help us reach out to others who are bereaved.

We give thanks to You on this Thanksgiving day....
For Your presence in our lives each and everyday.
For Your comfort, guidance, and never ending love...
And for taking care of our loved ones...in Heaven above.

As we light this candle on this Thanksgiving day...
And it glows in memory of those in Heaven today....
May their lights always shine down on us and give us light...
And may we feel their presence along with Yours tonight.

May the peace and tranquility of this Thanksgiving day
Be an everlasting light within each of us along the way...
Lets bow our heads and give our Thanks to God above..
For our blessings, whether on earth or in Heaven above...
Amen.

Wishing You Comfort & Peace along the “journey”,
John-Danielle Marie’s Daddy

I will ask to give the blessing Thanksgiving day and this will be it word for word. I will ask my niece to light a candle for her sister and my Madi to light one for Macy. If they are up yo it. Thank you John for posting.

Thanks John.  I was thinking of tomorrow, and how sad I already am, and this prayer made me feel better.  I am thankful for Dante, even though he is not here in the physical sense.  I am thankful he was with me for 14 incredible years, and I am thankful that I know he is watching me, sending me his love.

God bless you John,

Marty - Dante's Dad
