11 Best Thanksgiving Psalms for Big Blessing

“Thanksgiving” is an act of giving thanks for that which we are grateful. According to the dictionary, the word “thanksgiving” means “a public acknowledgement or celebration of divine goodness.” Did you catch that? Even the secular dictionary recognizes the connection between thanksgiving and the divine! While we generally give thanks for the gifts and benefits we have been given here on earth, we should be especially mindful to acknowledge and give thanks to the Giver of all these good gifts and benefits. The practice of giving thanks to the Lord is so powerful that there has been a day (in the United States) set aside for just that purpose: to praise, worship and thank God for all He has done for and given to us — i.e. our lives, our families, friends, health, the grace to draw closer to the Kingdom of God on earth, etc.

When we put it all into perspective, it is difficult to not be awestruck by the great mystery of God and how blessed we are to be a part of it. One Book in the Bible is especially powerful when it comes to shouting praises and thanksgiving for God’s goodness and sovereignty — The Book of Psalms. The psalmists certainly benefited from their attitudes of gratitude, and we will also if we follow suit. The many hymns, songs and poems all throughout the Book of Psalms reflect powerfully on the great wonders of God. And because the words are alive, they have the power to transform our not-so-grateful attitudes into ones of pure gratitude — opening the door to the same life-giving and transformative graces the psalmists experienced.

So no matter what you are going through today, rest assured — you can transform your life with gratitude! Praising and thanking God for all that He has done will change your life. Not only that, you will be given the grace of peace and joy that your heart has desperately needed. Remember, we can never out-give God. The more we praise, worship and honor Him, thanking Him for all that He has done for us, the more graces will show up in our lives and transform it. As you prayerfully read over these 11 Best Thanksgiving Psalms for Big Blessing, pay attention to those verses that speak most profoundly to your heart and proclaim them out loud. Praying the Psalms aloud has a mysterious yet effective power. Happy Thanksgiving!

Psalm 138

I will praise You, Lord, with all my heart;
    before the “gods” I will sing Your praise.

for You have so exalted Your solemn decree
    that it surpasses Your fame.
When I called, You answered me;
    You greatly emboldened me.

May all the kings of the earth praise You, Lord,
    when they hear what You have decreed.
May they sing of the ways of the Lord,
    for the glory of the Lord is great.

Though the Lord is exalted, He looks kindly on the lowly;
    though lofty, He sees them from afar.
Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
    you preserve my life.
You stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes;
    with Your right hand You save me.

His love endures forever.

 Give thanks to the God of Heaven.
His love endures forever.

Psalm 95

Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord;
    let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before Him with thanksgiving
    and extol Him with music and song.

For the Lord is the great God,
    the great King above all gods.
In His hand are the depths of the earth,
    and the mountain peaks belong to Him.
The sea is His, for He made it,
    and His hands formed the dry land.

    and we are the people of His pasture,

that I may enjoy the prosperity of Your chosen ones,
    that I may share in the joy of Your nation
    and join Your inheritance in giving praise.

Those who look to Him are radiant;
    their faces are never covered with shame.
This poor man called, and the Lord heard Him;
    He saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him,
    and He delivers them.
Taste and see that the Lord is good;
    blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him.

    and make music to Your Name, O Most High,
proclaiming Your love in the morning

    and the melody of the harp.

For You make me glad by Your deeds, Lord;
    I sing for joy at what Your hands have done.
How great are Your works, Lord,
    how profound Your thoughts!

You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead;
    You spared me from going down to the pit.

Sing the praises of the Lord, You his faithful people;
    praise His Holy Name.
For His anger lasts only a moment,
    but His favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night,
    but rejoicing comes in the morning.

You turned my wailing into dancing;
    You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
that my heart may sing Your praises and not be silent.
    Lord my God, I will praise You forever.
