Before you tuck into the turkey, share a sentimental blessing over your food and family.
Your Thanksgiving table is set, the Thanksgiving side dishes are steaming, and you’re surrounded by your nearest and dearest—it’s finally Thanksgiving Day! As the Thanksgiving menu is finally ready to serve, it’s a safe bet that mouths are watering, stomachs are growling, and your family’s excited for the turkey recipes to be carved. But bear in mind that the day dedicated to thankfulness deserves more than just eating yourself into a food coma (although that’s still a given). Before you pass the mashed potatoes and swap stories of gratitude, take some time to bless your crew (and food!) with our selection of the best Thanksgiving prayers. Whether you’re put on the spot during Thanksgiving dinner or asked to commemorate the harvest in advance, all eyes will be fixed on you—so choose your words wisely!
Whether you’re looking for a short and sweet Thanksgiving prayer to express gratitude, or a more traditional Thanksgiving-themed prayer, you’ve come to the right place. From Thanksgiving poems to Thanksgiving Bible verses, there’s a meaningful ode for every family’s feast, including a few rhyming verses for the kids to recite (the kids' table is also the perfect place to test out your Thanksgiving jokes).
