A Father's Thanksgiving Prayer



Father - Bless ye.

All- Bless ye.

Father- The eyes of all hope in Thee, O Lord.

All- And Thou gives them their food in due season. Thou openest Thy hand, and fillest with blessing every living creature.

Father- Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.

All- As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Father- Lord, have mercy on us.

All- Christ, have mercy on us. Lord, have mercy on us. (The Our Father, silently.)

Father- And lead us not into temptation.

All- But deliver us from evil. Amen.

Father- Let us pray. Bless us, O Lord, and these Thy gifts, which we are about to receive, from thy bounty through Christ, Our Lord.

All- Amen.


Grace after Thanksgiving Dinner

(Suggestion: Say this as soon as all are finished with dessert;
then the children may leave to play, and the grownups may stay and talk.)

Father- Do Thou, O Lord, have mercy on us.

All- Thanks be to God.

Father- Let all Thy works, O Lord, praise Thee.

All- And let all Thy Saints bless Thee.

Father- Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.

All- As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Father- We give Thee thanks, O Almighty God, for all Thy benefits. Who livest and reignest world without end.

All. Amen.
