Happy Thanksgiving

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

O Lord God, help us now really to worship You. We thank You for this occasion. We bless Your name for setting us apart now and always. Lord, will You shut the door upon the world for us? Help us to forget our cares. Enable us to rise far above this world. May we get rid of all its tendencies to drag us down. May the attractions of these grosser things be gone, and may You catch us away to Yourself.

Philippians 5:6-7

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Ezekiel Hopkins

A thanksgiving–day hath a double precedence of a fast–day. On a fast–day we eye God’s anger; on a thanksgiving–day we look to God’s favor. In the former we specially mind our corruptions; in the latter, God’s compassions, therefore a fast–day calls for sorrow, a thanksgiving–day for joy. But the Lord’s day is the highest thanksgiving day.
