Thanksgiving Prayer

My wife Karen, who works as a Client Advocate at St. Martin's Hospitality Center, wanted to share this Thanksgiving prayer, recently offered by Albuquerque Rescue Mission.

O God, when I have food,
Help me remember the hungry;
When I have work,
Help me remember the jobless;
When I have a home,
Help me remember those who have no home at all;
When I am without pain,
Help me remember those who suffer,
And by remembering
Help me destroy my complacency;
Bestir my compassion
And be concerned enough to help;
By word and deed,
Those who cry for what we take for granted.
-Samuel Pugh
