Heavenly Father, this week America ‘celebrated’ Thanksgiving in honor and in memory of Pilgrims who traveled in desperate conditions to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to the New World.  And for hundreds of years, the name of Jesus was honored and proclaimed throughout the land, as You stated:  “BE STILL, AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD!  I WILL BE HONORED BY EVERY NATION.  I WILL BE HONORED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.”  (Psalms 46:10 NLT)  You blessed America because our Founders honored You.

But distractions have now obliterated Thanksgiving apart from Christ with football games and shopping for Christmas gifts.  Comfort is the now the main attraction rather than Christ.   Believers proclaim Christ as Lord and they PRAISE THE LORD, ALL YOU NATIONS.  PRAISE HIM, ALL YOU PEOPLE OF THE EARTH.  FOR HE LOVES US WITH UNFAILING LOVE; THE LORD’S FAITHFULNESS ENDURES FOREVER.  (Psalms 117:1-2 NLT)

We Thank You for Your unending love and eternal pursuit to bring the lost to Yourself.  It is only Christ’s Love that brings peace.  We praise You forever.  In Jesus’ Name ~ Amen
