Memorial Day Prayer


Heavenly Father, Today we remember and pay tribute to the men and women of the Armed Services who have died in the defence of our nation; they paid the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we hold so dear.

In the words of Sacred Scripture, we hear, "There is no greater love than this, than to lay down one's life for a friend." It is only by Thy grace and the love they have for Thee and this nation that gave them the strength to lay down their lives.

We beseech Thee O Lord, to receive these servants of peace into Thy loving embrace and grant them the eternal peace that surpasses all understanding.

We also remember the family members of these great heroes. They too suffer a great and painful sacrifice. Bestow upon them the blessings of Thy consolation and peace. May Thou ease their sadness as they continue on the road to serenity and hope.

To Thee, we offer this prayer knowing Thou will fulfil the heart's desire of those who seek Thee with noble intentions. May our prayer for true and lasting peace be answered in accordance to Thy will and for the good of Thy sons and daughters. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, the King of Peace. Amen
