Dear Friends,

 

As we move into this month of Thanksgiving, I offer this prayer written by United Methodist pastor and author Ted Loder.  After offering up praise to God for life and love, Loder continues…

 

Thank you Lord for those who attempt beauty rather than curse ugliness,

for those who take stands rather than take polls,

for those who risk being right rather than pandering to be liked,

for those who do something rather than talking about everything.

Lord, grant me grace, then, and a portion of your spirit,

that I may so live as to give others cause to be thankful for me;

 thankful because I have not forgotten

 how to hope, how to laugh,

 how to say “I’m sorry”, how to forgive,

 how to bind up wounds,

how to dream, how to cry, how to pray,

 how to love when it is hard,

and how to dare when it is dangerous.

Un-dam me Lord, that praise may flow more easily from me than wants,

thanks more readily than complaints.

Praise be to you, Lord, for life,

Praise be to you for another chance to live.

 

May this be our prayer of thanks and of giving.  In the name of the Lord of Life…Pastor Sarah

 
 
 

    Stone United Methodist Church, I love this place!

    In the Peace, Power and Presence of Christ...Pastor Sarah
