A Memorial Day Prayer


Heavenly Father,
On this Memorial Day, we pray for those 
who courageously laid down their lives 
for the cause of freedom.  
May the examples of their sacrifice 
inspire in us the selfless love of Your Son, 
our Lord Jesus Christ.

Bless the families of our fallen troops. 
Fill their homes and their lives 
with Your strength and peace.

In union with people of goodwill of every nation, 
embolden us to answer the call 
to work for peace and justice, 
and thus, seek an end 
to violence and conflict around the globe.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
