Memorial Day Prayer
Lord, our prayer is for the families of those who laid down their lives in defense of our freedoms, for the wives and husbands, sons and daughters, mothers and fathers of our brave men and women in uniform who courageously served in our country’s military armed forces, fought in our wars and gave their all… made the ultimate sacrifice for all of us. Help us to never forget them and what they did for us; and may we as a nation never fail to care for and about their precious loved ones they left behind.
As we celebrate this Memorial Day weekend with our families and friends, please help us, Dear Lord help to live our lives richer and more abundantly, love our loved ones more, hold them nearer and dearer; and may we endeavor to always, in honor of them, revel in the joy of our freedom. In Jesus‘ Name. Amen.
