A Thanksgiving Prayer
A Thanksgiving prayer by John Knox:
"Honor and praise be unto you, O Lord our God, for all your tender mercies again bestowed upon us throughout another week. Continual thanks be unto you for creating us in your own likeness; for redeeming us by the precious blood of your dear Son when we were lost; and for sanctifying us with the Holy Spirit.
For your help and provision in our necessities, your protection in many dangers of body and soul; your comfort in our sorrows, and for sparing us in life, and giving us so large a time to repent.
For all the benefits, O most merciful Father, that we have received of your goodness alone, we thank you; and we beseech you to grant us always your Holy Spirit, that we may grow in grace, in steadfast faith, and perseverance in all good works, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen."
