My Thanksgiving Prayer

T	he God of our Fathers, sole author of all life
H	e, by decree placed man above the rest 
A	nd all other creations in his charge for keeping
N	ow and forever, let your truths be written in our hearts
K	eeping man forever mindful of this high place
S	o with gratitude this special day is planned
G	iving thanks and praise to the one true King
I	n you alone our faith and trust will lie
V	alidate our hearts we do implore
I	nundate our lives with grace of light
N	ever turn away from our humble plea 
G	ive us eyes to see and the ears to hear

D	ying, freely, you gave us life; by rising you gave us hope 
A	ll your words and actions teach the ultimate truth
Y	our love alone holds our world in stead

    Audrey, dear, this is one of the most earnest prayer I have ever heard. "In you alone our faith and trust will be". A prayer of true commitment. Be blessed and good luck in this contest. May others see the beauty of your prayers. Luv, Joy (Jew)
