Prayer for Memorial Day

The grave markers of fallen heroes

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.—John 15:13 (NIV)

Today we remember those who gave the greatest sacrifice for our country. We hold them in our hearts and thank them for their courage and sacrifice. We pray for the families of our troops and ask for God’s comfort and blessings fill their homes.

Today's Prayer:

Dear Lord, I remember and honor the men and women who died serving our country; please comfort their loved ones.
