Destroy my complacency

A Thanksgiving Day Prayer

"Oh God, when I have food,
help me to 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 remembering,
help me destroy my complacency;
Bestir my compassion
and be concerned enough to help;
By word and deed,
those who cry out for what we take for granted.
Amen."
