Thanksgiving Prayer

Mother Goddess and Father God, I thank you for Life and its abundance, for family and friends, for my church, fellow UUs and fellow Pagans, for a good job and the opportunities it provides. I thank you for the opportunity to be of service – may I always serve humbly and sincerely… and effectively.

I thank you for this country and its freedoms – may we always live up to our highest ideals. I thank you for the new leadership – I ask you to bless them with the wisdom of their faiths and with the wisdom of many faiths, so that righteous men and women may lead us to a new time of peace, justice, and true prosperity.

And I ask you to bless and guide those of us who work to re-create the Old Ways for these new times as we honor our ancestors, our world, and our goddesses and gods.

Blessed be!

About John Beckett

I’m a Druid in the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids. I’m an ordained priest in the Universal Gnostic Fellowship. I’m the Coordinating Officer of the Denton, Texas Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans. This year I’m also serving as a member of the Board of Trustees of CUUPS National. I’m a member of the Denton Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.

I write as a spiritual practice. It helps me organize my thoughts and work through ideas and concepts. It helps me evaluate my beliefs and practices against my core values and against what I know (or at least, what I think I know) to be true. It helps me interpret my experiences (religious and otherwise) in ways that are both meaningful and honest.
