Thanksgiving Prayer

We thank thee, Almighty God,
for the rich heritage of this good land;
for the evidences of Thy favor in the past;
and for the Hand that hath made
and preserved us as a nation.
We thank thee for the men and women
who, by blood and sweat, by toil and tears,
forged on the anvil of their own sacrifice
all that we hold dear.
May we never lightly esteem
what they obtained at a great price.
From the prayers of Peter Marshall, D.D.
Chaplain of the United States Senate
