a different sort of thanksgiving prayer...

"O God, when I have food, 
help me to remember the hungry;

When I have work, 
help me to remember the jobless;

When I have a home, 
help me to remember those who have no home at all;

When I am without pain, 
help me to remember those who suffer,

And remembering, help me to 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. 

A Thanksgiving Prayer by Samuel F. Pugh
