We Give You Thanks

(a prayer for Thanksgiving)
For those who have taught us...
For those who have given witness...
For those who have risked it all for others...
For those who have ended their earthly journey...
For those who have spoken up...
For those who have helped us discover our true selves...
For those who have stayed with us when it would have been easier to leave...
For those who have asked for forgiveness...
For those who have worked for justice...
For those who have walked courageously into their own uncertainty...
For those who have given us life...
For those who have born our becoming...
For those who have learned our soul song even when we have grown hoarse...
For those who have the strength to be with us through life...
For those who have called us friend...
We give you thanks.
Amen
