A Thanksgiving Prayer


HELP ME THANKSGIVING DAY PRAYER

O God, when I have food,
help me to remember the hungry;
When I have work,
help me to remember the jobless;
When I have a home,
help me to remember those who have no home at all;
When I am without pain,
help me to remember those who suffer,
And remembering,
help me to destroy my complacency;
bestir my compassion,
and be concerned enough to help;
By word and deed,
those who cry out for what we take for granted.
Amen.
~ Samuel F. Pugh

I think this is such a beautiful and meaningful prayer.
I want to try to remember these things more often
in my day to day life.
