PLANO, Texas — Dr. Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, releases a prayer for America on Thanksgiving Day 2017:
“Our Father and our God, on this Thanksgiving Day, we remember that we are to praise You and to rejoice in You always, and to give You thanks in every season and circumstance of life.
“We are so thankful for our nation, our nation’s founding and the way You have blessed our land with bounty and beauty. We’re so thankful since our nation’s founding that You have blessed us with liberty and freedom. But today, we ask for Your forgiveness because we have taken Your blessings and we have abused them in many ways. You have blessed us with abundant blessings, and we have turned from You; and so we return to You in repentance and faith.
“We pray, oh God, that You would heal our land and heal our hearts; and Lord that You would bless our families and fill our churches. We pray that You would send revival to our nation and to our churches, and that we would live for Your glory, each one of us, until You come again.”
