Veterans Day 2016 | Prayer for Veterans

American flag

Lord God, Almighty Father,
Creator of mankind and Author of peace.
We are ever mindful of the cost paid for the liberty we possess.
We ask You to bless the members of our armed forces,
both past and present.
Give them courage, hope and strength.
May they experience Your firm support, gentle love and compassionate healing.

Look kindly upon your departed who gave their lives
in the service of our country.
Be their power and protector, leading them from darkness to light.
Grant that through the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of your Son
they may share in the joy of your heavenly kingdom
and rejoice in You with your saints forever.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
To You be all glory, honor and praise, now and forever. Amen.
