With grateful hearts, we give thanks

As the national holiday of Thanksgiving approaches, let’s set aside the partisanship that has polarized the political scene, to pause as one Nation under God and give thanks for all His blessings! 

Let’s especially remember with gratitude and honor those who serve and served our Country! May we express our deepest heartfelt gratitude to and prayers for families who lost loved ones in the service of our nation. While giving thanks for our blessings and freedoms,

  • Pray for God’s abiding comfort for these families.
  • Pray for those serving in the Armed Services and other branches of government at home and abroad.
  • Pray also for those who serve our fire and police departments.
  • Pray especially for our leaders in government to exercise caution and wisdom before committing to future conflicts.

Finally, and most importantly, let us give thanks to the One who gave His life for us and our sins. I will never fully understand the amazing truth that, “God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). But because He did this for us, we know that death does not get the last word over life!

with gratitude and prayer,

Steve Cornell
