Thanksgiving Prayer For Kids
Thanksgiving doesn’t have to be complicated. Sure, you can get all hung up on the history of the holiday and its roots in Native American culture, but at its core Thanksgiving is about being grateful for what you have in life. That’s why we’ve created this simple prayer that can help your kids express just how thankful they are during this special time of year:
God, we want to thank you today
“Thank You, God, for our family and friends. We thank You for the food we eat, the clothes we wear, and all of the other gifts you have given us. Help us to be kind to one another and forgive when we do wrong.”
For our family and friends.
It’s important to be thankful for your family and friends. We should show them love and kindness. We should talk with them, play with them, and make sure we spend time together. It’s also important to thank God for our family and friends when we pray on Thanksgiving day!
Thank you for reading this prayer—I hope you enjoyed it!
For the food we eat and the clothes we wear.
Thank you for the food we eat and the clothes we wear.
Food and clothing are blessings, but they’re also important. They show that God loves us, and they’re not to be taken for granted.
Help us to be kind to one another.
- Help us to be kind to one another.
- Forgive us when we make mistakes, and help us forgive others who have done wrong by us, too.
- Help us to see the good in others and not just the bad things they do sometimes, because there’s a lot of bad things that we do as well! We can all be better people if we look for good things in each other instead of focusing on what makes them different from me or my family, even though that might seem easier at times…
And forgive us when we do wrong.
And forgive us when we do wrong.
- What is forgiveness?
Forgiveness is the act of forgiving someone who has wronged you, for something they have done or said that hurt you in some way. It’s not always easy, but it’s worth it! As the Bible says in Matthew 6:14, “for if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you,” so make sure to give yourself a break when needed!
- How do I know if I need to forgive someone?
If someone has done something that hurts your feelings or makes you feel bad about yourself then yes—you probably do need to forgive them! But let’s say someone did something really mean like spreading rumors about you at school; maybe that doesn’t need forgiving right away because there are other ways those people could be punished besides just forgiving them (not saying anything more). Still though, don’t hold grudges against anyone for long periods of time and try again later on down the road if need be–it’ll come naturally once things start feeling better again.
Have a happy Thanksgiving this year.
Thanksgiving Day is a time to be thankful for what you have, to be with your family and friends, and to remember the past and look forward to the future.
Thanksgiving is a day set aside each year when people give thanks for good things that have happened during the year. People often share their thanks at home with their families or at schools or churches by reading poems about Thanksgiving and then saying grace before meals.
This prayer can also be used as an act of gratitude toward God, who has given us so many blessings including health, love and friendship.
Thanksgiving prayers are a great way to teach your kids about gratitude and giving thanks. These prayers will help them express their gratitude to God, their family and friends, as well as others who don’t have as much to be thankful for.
