Much for Which to Be Thankful!

Wishing you and yours a very happy, healthy, and blessed Thanksgiving!

Here's the Prayer for Thanksgiving (approved for use in the forthcoming URCNA Hymnal):

Our Sovereign God, who created all things for your pleasure and who gives to all life, breath, and every good thing, we praise you for our creation, preservation, and all the blessings of this life. For rain and sunshine, in abundance and in lack, we acknowledge that our times are in your hands. You supply all of your creatures with your good gifts: the just and the unjust alike. Nevertheless, we especially give you praise for the surpassing greatness of your saving grace that you have shown to us in Christ Jesus our Savior. For our election in him before the foundation of the world; for our redemption by him in his life, death, and resurrection; for our effectual calling, justification, sanctification, and all of the blessings of our union with him, we give you our heartfelt thanks. And we look with great anticipation toward that day when you will raise us to life everlasting, glorified and confirmed in righteousness, so that we may sing your praises without the defilement of our present weaknesses, distractions, and sins. As you have served us with these gifts, we ask that you would give us grateful hearts so that through us you may serve our neighbors. In the name of Jesus Christ our Savior, Amen.

If you are interested, you are invited to join us for Thanksgiving services (Thursday @ 10:00 a.m.) at Christ Reformed (Thanksgiving Services)

I am thankful for your recently completed Amil 101 series; thanks for taking my eyes off Middle East politics and bar codes and placing them more fully on Jesus! What a tremendous free resource. Thanks!

Too typical! No reference to "the means of grace.". And why do we have to imitate the sectarians and not end "through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, world without end. Amen. Clear witness to the need of all our pastors to be taught liturgics.

Full Thanksgiving demands the Eucharist also.

I just want to second Garrett's thanksgiving! I'm only about a third of the way through it, but I'm loving it. Thank you, very, very much for this free resource.
