Blessings of Thanksgiving Tablescape



It's time to start preparing for Thanksgiving and it's a special time to count your blessings. 


As I share this Thanksgiving table with you, I'll also share a few Thanksgiving prayers that can be said at your table.



Thank You, God
For the food we are about to eat,
For those who are here
To share these blessings,
For the generosity of our hosts
That make this possible.
Bless those who are here
And those who are in our hearts,
And all those who are not
As fortunate on this day.

Amen.

from here



As we bow our heads to pray, we give thanks to you God, for this Thanksgiving Day.

We thank ou Father, for our families, friends, and for all the blessings, both big and small, that you pour out on us each day. 

We give thanks to you for this wonderful time together, and for each one present here today.

Amen.

from here




We thank you for the turkey,
the Gravy and the dressing.
Dear Lord, this table overflows
With Thy abundant blessing.

Let us always be aware
That all gifts come from You,
And may we serve Your heavenly will
In everything we do. Amen.

from here



Dear Lord,
As we gather together around this table
laden with your plentiful gifts to us,
we thank You for always providing
what we really need
and for sometimes granting wishes
for things we don't really need.
Today, let us be especially thankful
for each other - for family and friends
who enrich our lives in wonderful ways,
even when they present us with challenges
Let us join together now
in peaceful, loving fellowship
to celebrate Your love for us
and our love for each other. Amend

Prayers that kids could say:

Lord, we thank you this Thanksgiving,
For the food we eat and the lives we're living. Amen.

Lord, we pray You'll bless this food,
As we eat it now in gratitude. Amen.

We thank You, God, for the food we eat;
We thank you for our lives so sweet. Amen.

from here



I hope you are okay with me giving some possible prayers for your table. Sometimes people are looking for a prayer to say so I hope this gives a little help.


Thanks for stopping by for another day for Life in Kentucky - Judy.

Judy, your table of Thanksgiving is lovely. I like the touch of blue in the linens and pottery. Thanks for sharing this beauty!

Judy, I really like how you put this lovely post together! Not only are the tablescape pics stunning, but the prayers interspersed between them make the perfect commentary. Wish I had seen some of these prayers for when we had our Thanksgiving back in Oct! Going back to pin...

Judy,
The blessings of grace are to be copied and kept for future reference, dear friend!
I love how you've blended a touch of blue into the Traditional Thanksgiving Tablescaping hues!
Your collage is gorgeous!
Fondly,

Although Thanksgiving isn't celebrated here in Europe I always enjoy seeing how others enjoy this special holiday.
Thanks for bringing your beautiful table and thoughtful prayers to Mosaic Monday this week.

Judy, it's been a long time. I'm thrilled to be able to find you here on Tablescape Thursday. You've chosen a perfect moment to share your beautiful prayers of peace. I love the touch of teal in your dinnerware combined with the vibrant hues of Autumn. Thanks for inviting us for a peek. Cherry Kay
