Autumn Prayer of Thanksgiving
All mighty and enduring God, we enter this time of year with both spirit and heart filled with gratefulness. The vibrant colors of autumn remind us that the eternal rest of peace and joy await us through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. With thanksgiving we remember those who have gone before us and we pray for their comforting repose while also imploring them to pray for us as we continue to fulfill God’s desires in our own lives. Above all, may we consider the setting autumn sun not as one portending winter, but of a celebration that beckons the eternal that only You give to us. We pray this in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
