Thread: Thanksgiving Day Prayer

  1. #1

    Thanksgiving Day Prayer

    I was recently asked by my sister (who is hosting our thanksgiving day dinner) to lead our family in prayer before the meal. There is going to be about 30-40 people at the dinner, including a lot of my extended family and my brother-in-law's (my sisters husband) extended family.

    The thing is that no one that will be there beside my wife, my son, and I are Christians. Further more our family has never been a family to pray before a meal like this, so when my sister asked i was very encouraged. On top of that, my brother-in-law's father is very ill and their family has been going through a lot.

    I would really appreciate some idea's/direction on a prayer i could say before the meal. I see this a great opportunity to share the gospel to people whom i love dearly.

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
