American Thanks Giving 2010

So once in every year we throng Upon a day apart,To praise the Lord with feast and songIn thankfulness of heart.

~Arthur Guiterman, The First Thanksgiving

He who thanks but with the lips Thanks but in part;The full, the true Thanksgiving Comes from the heart.

~J.A. Shedd

For each new morning with its light,For rest and shelter of the night,For health and food, for love and friends,For everything Thy goodness sends.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thou hast given so much to me,Give one thing more, - a grateful heart;Not thankful when it pleaseth me,As if Thy blessings had spare days,But such a heart whose pulse may be Thy praise.

~George Herbert

Dear Lord; we beg but one boon more:Peace in the hearts of all men living,peace in the whole world this Thanksgiving.

~Joseph Auslander

On Thanksgiving Day we acknowledge our dependence.

~William Jennings Bryan

O Lord that lends me life,Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness.

~William Shakespeare

"For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia just after the Revolution.

The delegates were hopelessly deadlocked and could not reach agreement on anything. Finally one morning, a then quite old man named Benjamin Franklin stood up, and leaning upon his cane, addressed the delegates.

Here is what he said, “Gentlemen, during the late conflict with England we often called upon Divine Providence to deliver us from certain defeat. Our prayers were heard. Is it not just possible, that this same Divine Providence, who knows the numbers of hairs on our heads, and when a sparrow falls, would bless this endeavor if we asked Him?”

The delegates were stunned, and hurried as one man to a church just down the road to pray for guidance. They also appointed chaplains to minister to the delegates. The Constitution was finished in a week. Soon thereafter the first 10 Amendments were ratified. These enumerated those unalienable rights that came from God, not from government.

On this Thanksgiving 2010, we are thankful for our families, our homes, our Liberty, our Freedom and our prosperity. Without a free United States of America, there would be no freedom in the world. Most of us have stood out there on the edge of the Abyss, defending that very freedom and prosperity for which we are so thankful today.

Be thankful that you understand the difference and are free to make choices in your lives. Billions on this planet cannot.

May we all realize when our freedoms are being encroached upon and stand up and push back as Americans. Our prayers today run parallel to those first delegates, seeking after Divine Providence to deliver us from those who would strip us of those unalienable rights given to us by God Almighty and not government.

Charter of Freedom~

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers,and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated; and no Warrants shall issue but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

IV Amendment

The Constitution of the United States of America

Today we call upon Divine Providence to deliver us from those who seek to strip us of our freedoms as citizens of America for financial gain. We give up our hearts in thanksgiving for the freedoms we have as Americans. Trusting in and clinging to and relying upon Almighty God to protect us and deliver us by His good hand of blessing. Keep us and preserve us always.

In Jesus name (authority) we ask this of thee.


Psalm 118:24This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Daniel 3:17If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.

Galatians 1:4Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:
