Prayer of Thanksgiving for Grandma Quillen
Heavenly Father, as we approach Thanksgiving we make it a point to give You thanks, we thank you for our faith, our hope, our lives, all that sustains us, and especially for the people you bring into our lives. Lord we thank You for Diana Quillen. She was a matriarch of a large family, an example of living life to the fullest, a follower of Jesus Christ, and a continual support for many of us and many we may never know. Lord, we thank you for the memories that will serve as sweet reminders of Grandma’s selfless love displayed through her sacrificial service of others. Lord, you teach us through your Word that to live is Christ, but to die is gain. Grandma has already gained more than she ever lost. You also teach us to store up treasures in heaven for where our treasure is there our heart will be also. Lord we know Grandma treasured her family, her games, and her adventures but we know where her heart and presence is today and that is in heaven with you. Help us live and make the most of the lives you’ve provided us as we wait for the day we will get to see you face-to-face and be with Grandma Quillen again. Help us leave a legacy of service and love as Diana Quillen left in the hearts of those who will miss her dearly.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
