Thanksgiving 2022 Prayer

Lord God, forgive us for how often we forget to praise and thank You. May we take time today to reflect on all that You have done for us.

Lord God, thank You and praise You for the gift of fellowship. Thank You Lord for the ability to give You thanks and praise with brothers and sisters all over the world. Lord God, may our thanks and praise be a pleasing aroma to You.

Lord, for our brothers and sisters who live in countries where evangelism is costly, may the lost smell Jesus on our fellow Christians as they live in praise and thanksgiving of who You are and what You have done in their lives. Lord may the Western church learn from the persecuted church as our time of suffering is coming. Thank You Lord for all the examples of Christian witnesses that have gone before us!

Lord God, thank You for this reader. Thank You for giving this reader worth because they are created in Your image. Lord God, thank You for the gift of salvation by grace, through faith in Christ alone.

Thank You Lord for the opportunity to love and serve You. May we serve You well each day that You give us. Help us Lord that when we mess up that may we confess our sin and praise You for the opportunity to walk on Your path again.

Thank You Holy Trinity that You are alive, that You are intimately involved in Your Creation and that You know Your people. Lord, thank You again for this reader! May they thank and praise You today! In Jesus’s Name I pray. Amen.

Blue Collar Theologian

My name is Mandy Sweigart-Quinn, I live in Lancaster, PA and I am a “Blue Collar Theologian.” I love Jesus! I am passionate about His Word (The Holy Bible)! I come alive when I can encourage others in their walk with Jesus (whether by writing or speaking). As a “Blue Collar Theologian” it is my aim to live/practice/work out my Christian hope with sincerity, authenticity and genuineness. As a “Blue Collar Theologian,” I strive to meet people right where they are (“Incarnational Theology”). I graduated in May 2019 from Capital Seminary and Graduate School with a Master's in Biblical Studies. I am a passionate, excited and enthusiastic person! I love flowers, sports and sunsets. Since January 2, 2018 I have had the privilege of being married to Nathan.

      1. Yes, I did. It was a glorious visit. I also learned I will be a grandfather in May. I am stoked for sure about that. I will return to see them for Christmas.

        Blessings for a stunning day in paradise.

      1. I am not a shopper either!!! I didn’t know if Corinne would go out on Black Friday!!!! Nathan wants to go to one of the fishing stores here in FL. I said, “if we go to the pool first, I’ll go with you this evening.” Maybe he’ll have a change of mind in the meantime or they will be sold out of whatever it is he wants (that’s awful of me I know!!!!!).

      2. Corinne loves to shop (for home decorations and clothes), but has never gone out on Black Friday. We mostly give gift cards to the kids and grandkids at this point.
        I don’t blame you for not wanting to deal with the shopping craziness.

  2. Amen and amen! I have been blessed! Thankful for you and how God blesses me through you! May the joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control of Spirit continue to be the Light shining forth from you!!!

      1. We’re doing well, Mandy. Thank you for asking. Hoping you and yours are well also. My daughter and her family live nearby, and we spend Thanksgiving with them. We haven’t been up north since we moved here in 2017.

  3. Hi Mandy! I’m so behind in all my ready but saw this fab sweet potato and had to dig into the post!
    Such gratitude and thanksgiving is the antidote I need for situational stress.
    Thank you for always engaging us in praise and remembering, as brother David mentioned, our suffering brethren.
    Bye for now dear sister! ❤

  4. Another quiet one. Too much sickness in the family. Everyone stayed home. But we’re still thankful. The weather was nice, so I spent the afternoon putting up thousands of outdoor Christmas lights. Then Saturday night it rained, and they all went out! LOL. (And if those are my biggest problems, I am blessed indeed!)
