God, I pray for my company. Give us joy in our work together and
justice in all our dealings. Give us fairness in compensation and
concern for each other. Give us balance among stakeholders and stockholders
as we allocate our budget. Give us appreciation for the contributions
of others. Help us to deal fairly and honestly with employees, managers,
shareholders, and regulators. God, may my company honor You. In
Jesus' name. Amen.

God, my plans, my hopes, my joys, my regrets, I lay them at Your
feet. Take my relationships, my aspirations, my disappointments,
my griefs. Accept my wishes, my needs, my choices, my intentions,
my memories, my ups, my downs, for only in You is there meaning.
Only in Your lead is there fulfillment. Only in Your grace is there
balance. Only in You is there salvation. Through Jesus Christ, my

(Meditation: I Peter 4:8)
God, thank you for the anticipation of our family's coming for Thanksgiving,
for the anticipation of the comforting smells of favorite foods
cooking in the kitchen, for the anticipation of joy in being together
and sharing memories. And Father, we pray for those who have no
family, and those who have very little food. May our thanksgiving
lead us to serve others. In Jesus' name. Amen.

(Meditation: Psalm 100)
Almighty God, You have given the people of this nation the great
heritage of Thanksgiving. You led people to leave their homes to
come to these shores because of their religious longings. You led
them to love freedom, and faith, and opportunity. You led them to
celebrate with a feast of thanksgiving for Your providence and care.
You led them to found a great nation under God. Ours is a great
heritage because of them. But we thank You most of all for a greater
heritage, an eternal heritage, for You count us as righteous because
of the suffering and death of Christ on the Cross. So, for our nation
and for those who shaped it and protected it, we offer to You our
thanksgiving. And for the One who died to set us free, we humbly
offer You our thanksgiving, and ourselves. Through Jesus Christ,
our Lord. Amen.

me or sunshine to guide me in the valley of peace. This is YOUR
day, whether my cries for help go unanswered or whether I feel Your
nearness all the day through. It is YOUR day, for EVERY day is Your
day, and You will see me through to the end. I praise You, in Jesus'
