a Memorial Day prayer

Today we honor those who have served and serve in the military. And we remember those who have laid down their lives in doing so.

Prince of Peace, grant your peace to us and let us be people of peace. We thank you for those who put their own lives at risk to maintain civil order and peace. And especially for those who have lost their lives in doing so. Bless those who are serving and the memory of those who have served. And may the kingdom of your Father come by the peace you made through your blood shed on the cross. Amen.
