"Build Up To M-Day", My Prayer

God, Father of us all, we gather on this Memorial Day to offer our sincere gratitude for all those who, at their country's call, have met the horrors and shock of battles and have surrendered their lives to the ruthless brutality of war.

We thank You for the freedom their sacrifice has earned and preserved for us.

Forbid that their suffering and death should be in vain. We pray that through their devotion to duty and suffering on our behalf, the horrors of war may pass from earth and Your Kingdom of peace and honor and brotherhood be established among all men.

O Lord, comfort all who mourn the loss of those loved ones, especially the families of our departed brothers.
We thank You for all who have served in the military of this country.

Support them by Your never ending love. Give them faith to look beyond the trials of the present and to know that neither life nor death can separate us from the love and eternal presence of Jesus Christ, in whose name we pray.
