A Few Thanksgiving Prayers Before Meals

Updated on August 21, 2019

Thanksgiving Enough For All

Thanksgiving Blessings

Our Father who art in Heaven,

We ask you to truly bless

this food we see before us,

laid out in grandiose style,

fit for a king with a harmonious chorus,

prepared carefully and lovingly

for a long or a short while,

Bless those who took the time

to make our eyes delighted,

to make our stomachs satisfied

to make our faces smile,

Bless those who went to great detail

to make selections especially

for the oldest to the smallest,

to the youngest cradled child,

Strengthen our fellowship today God,

through this great food, love, prayer and song,

Bless each and every morsel

that enters our mouths

and touches our tongue,

Bless those who stayed up late

and cooked all night,

Bless those who stopped in a store

or a bakery to add to this delight.

Thanksgiving Feast

Our Father who art in Heaven,

Oh merciful God this another year we see

to be together in loving harmony.

Keep it so we pray.

Bless this food we are about to eat today,

though some have plenty,

many have none,

Let us remember to share with those in need

as we can,

for they can know the comfort in not being hungry,

Bless this loving Thanksgiving feast

we are about to partake of


Bless all of those who contributed

their time and skills to make it so.

God Bless You!

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank you for everyone

who has gathered here today.

It seems just yesterday we were all here together,

Some faces are gone,

Some are not present for one reason or another,

Let the love, strength and power

of those who are here and even absent

Empower us to accomplish great things,

Empower us to accomplish small tasks

that led to larger successful goals

so we can bloom and flourish

into the magnificent persons You want us to be Lord.

Bless this Thanksgiving meal prepared with loving hands

for our delight,

Bless the cooks,

cake, pie and dessert makers,

Bless the turkey, ham, chicken and Cornish hen roasters,

Bless the bread, biscuit and roll bakers,

Bless the table setters

as well as the clean up crew,

Turn and Bless each other

and God bless you!

Happy Thanksgiving!
