Avoyelles Commission of Tourism takes this opportunity to wish all our readers a Happy Thanksgiving Holiday Season with a suggested prayer for Thanksgiving 2021.
This year continues to be difficult for many of us at this table. While this is a sweet moment, it’s also hard. The challenges we have faced in 2021 have been overwhelming, and as we gather to give thanks, we cannot ignore the fact that these feelings still linger, as does the pain. But let us remember, we know that you are a God who loves us, cares for us, heals us, and forgives us. Help us to enjoy this time. In the lingering bitterness, give us peace. We thank you for this meal and pray a blessing for our strength. Amen.
