A Thanksgiving Prayer

Dear God,

Thanksgiving is almost here and I feel stressed. When I feel stressed, I tend to complain. 

So, Lord, when I complain about how much there is to do, help me to give thanks that I have transportation to take me where I need to go.

When I complain about fighting lines at the grocery store, help me to give thanks that I can buy food for Thanksgiving.

When I complain about family, help me to give thanks for the family you've given me.

God, any time I'm tempted to complain this Thanksgiving, help me to be mindful of the many, many blessings You've generously given me.

Amen
