Before Meal

Our omnipresent Father who dwells in Heaven, It is with enormous pleasure that this family is gathered here today. There is a lot that is going on in this world, but we cannot afford to miss the blessings upon our lives and the fact that it is You who have made this meal possible for us.

Thank You so much for your blessings. In your Holy name, we pray, Amen.

Special Sentiments

We acknowledge that it could not have been possible without You. All we are beyond joyous to rejoice in You in this special family gathering. We are grateful for good health, and providence that You have bestowed unto us.

When it comes to citing a thanksgiving prayer for  family, the words for the prayer best emanate from the heart. This may sound and be easy for some people, but it can also be challenging for others. Some people may find it is difficult to get the right words for the prayer especially in instances where there are many people listening.

There are many verses from the Bible with regards to Thanksgiving. One of these verses that stand out is Psalms 100 which states; “Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands! Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations”.

Bible verses about Thanksgiving prayers for family 

This Bible verse shows that it is with all the good reasons that families sing thanks in their gatherings and religious ceremonies. It is in proper standing to express and excite devout and pious affections towards God in all approaches to Him in ordinances. If your heart is in line with the words that you are saying and singing in thanksgiving, you will make melody in the thanksgiving to the Lord Jesus Christ. However, if you say words of thanksgiving out of duty and because they are penned as they are, then there will be no meaning to such thanksgiving prayers for family or any other group. We are all called upon to praise God plainly. This praising is extended to the gospel-church. Christians are furnished with the matter for praise whereby they must praise the Lord for his being and relation to them, for His truth and mercy. All these are plain, simple and common things; more reasons to praise God and offer Him thanks.

Thanksgiving prayers for family are important because they not only remind family members of all the good things that they have because of God and thank Him for the same. It also helps families appreciate more about their lives and family relationships and not to take anything for granted. Thanksgiving prayers for family and friends create a culture of giving thanks to the God who directs lives and everything under the sun.

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.

Serve the LORD with gladness:
come before his presence with singing.

Know ye that the LORD he is God:
it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,

be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

For the LORD is good;
his mercy is everlasting;
and his truth endureth to all generations.

Sing praises to His Name; He forgets not His own.
Beside us to guide us, our God with us joining,
Ordaining, maintaining His kingdom divine;
So from the beginning the fight we were winning;

And pray that Thou still our Defender will be.
Let Thy congregation escape tribulation;
Thy Name be ever praised! O Lord, make us free!
