Thanksgiving Prayer

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

O Lord Jesus Christ, our God, the God of all mercies and compassion, Whose mercy cannot be measured and Whose love for mankind is without limit: As unprofitable servants we bow down in reverence and fear before Thy gracious majesty, and we humbly offer Thee this Thanksgiving for all the benefits Thou hast bestowed upon our nation and our Church. We glorify, praise, hymn and magnify Thee as our Lord, Master and Benefactor.  We bow down before Thee in Thanksgiving for Thy immeasurable and priceless loving-kindness. We pray that in the same way that Thou hast already blessed us, heard our prayers and fulfilled them, so also in the time to come as we flourish in love and virtue as a result of Thy blessings, grant always to accept our thanksgiving supplications and grant that we may bring glory to Thy Holy Name each day that we walk on this earth. Deliver our Church and our nation from every evil circumstance, and continue to accept, bless and prosper the work of our hands. O Lord, grant us peace and tranquility so that we may live in godliness all the days of our lives. Count us always worthy to offer Thee thanksgiving, to tell about Thy wonderful blessings, and to sing praise to Thee for all the benefits Thou dost bestow upon us. In humble gratitude we praise Thy Name together with Thy Father who is from everlasting and Thy Most Holy, good and consubstantial Spirit. Amen.

O Christ our God, bless the food and drink of thy servants, for thou art Holy always; now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.
