A Thanksgiving Prayer

This prayer has been tumbling around in my head for a bit over a year now.  I wanted something that truly acknowledges the miracle of food and how important it is that we really care about where it comes from and who is growing and making it.

Dear Lord,
Thank You for the incredible bounty You have put before us and bless it to our bodies.
Just as You have provided the plants and animals for our nourishment,
Let us be mindful that You have given us the responsibility to nourish and care for them.
Bless all those who had a role in bringing this food to our Thanksgiving table:
The farmers, migrant workers, and truck drivers.
The grocery store workers and cooks.
Help us to remember that we all depend upon one another
And each of us is an earthbound instrument of Your Magnificent Grace.

Amen.
