Loving and Faithful Father, I come to your courts with thanksgiving for your steadfast caring and watching over me. Today is Thanksgiving. I pray for sweet spirits and loving conversations around the family tables in my nation. I pray for family unity and a sense of belonging and acceptance. I pray your hand upon us all, Father. Renew us, revive us, and restore us in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.” (Ephesians 4:31-32 ESV)
