Memorial Day (USA)

Almighty God, you are our strength and our shield. We give you thanks for the men and women of our armed forces who have died while serving. May their sacrifices further¬†the cause of peace, and may our nation be ever grateful for their dedication. With your wisdom and strength guide our military’s leaders, and give to all people a desire for justice and peace. We pray in the name of Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.¬†
