Remember and Honor
A Prayer for Memorial Day
"Almighty and everlasting God, in whom all souls live now and evermore, the God not of the dead but of the living: We bless thee for all those who have faithfully lived and died in the service of their country. As we ever hold them in grateful remembrance, do thou in thy love and mercy let light perpetual shine upon them, and bring us all at last into thine eternal kingdom of peace; through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen."
Perhaps, over this holiday weekend, each of us will find some moment to pray this prayer as we remember those who have given their lives to ensure that we live in freedom.
