Thanksgiving Day Inspirations

Help Me
(A 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.
-Samuel F. Pugh

Psalm 100

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
Serve the LORD with gladness:
come before his presence with singing.
Know ye that the LORD he is God:
it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise:
be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
For the LORD is good;
his mercy is everlasting;
and his truth endureth to all generations.

Wishing each and everyone of you, a glorious day of giving thanks and sharing with family, friends and community.


  1. Oh, Sherrey, Samuel Pugh's prayer reaches right ito my heart. It's so powerful, so true. Thank you for sharing it with us. I need to read it, and pray it, again and again.

    Have a blessed Thanksgiving!


  2. Linda, I appreciate your taking time not only to stop by but to leave your reactions to my post in your own words.
