Take a few moments, just a few moments, and read down in remembrance for our fallen heroes.
I pray that our
may assuage the anguish
of your bereavement,
and leave you only the cherished memory of the
loved and lost, and the solemn
pride that must be yours to have
laid so costly a sacrifice upon
The Altar of Freedom.
Yours very sincerely and respectfully,
Dear Heavenly Father,
With a sober heart we come before You this
Memorial Day. We pause for a moment and call to
mind all the men and women who have died in the
service of our nations since 1776.
Dear God, please look with mercy on our brave and
selfless brothers and sisters, who did not shirk from
their task but gave themselves completely to the
cause of defending and protecting us all. Bless all
who have given their lives for the sake of liberty,
and grant them eternal rest with You.
We remember also our brave men and women now
serving in our Armed Forces, both at home and
abroad. Dear God, send out Your angels to protect
them all. Help them discharge their duties
honorably and well. Please bring them safely home
to their families and loved ones. Please bring Your
peace and mercy to our troubled world.
We ask this, Father, in the name of Jesus, Your son.
