11/23/04 Exchange Club prayer of Dad’s: Our heavenly Father we come here today looking forward to Thursday and the joy of giving thanks with family and friends. Remind us often to share your Grace with others – to be ever grateful for life itself and the freedoms we enjoy. Amen
Remind us often means:
- Use the holiday China and crystal more often. Don’t retire the desire to give thanks and gather family because it’s not a holiday.
- Make a holiday meal…mid-week.
- Pecan pie for breakfast is totally OK.
If a one-day meal can foster such feelings of gratitude, then we shouldn’t wait for a holiday to do this.
May we listen to Your reminders during the week, Lord. We don’t have to wait till the next holiday:
You said, “Lo, I am with you always.”
