Prayer for Memorial Day

Prayer for Memorial Day

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

On this Memorial Day remember those who gave the greatest sacrifice for our country. These men and women who laid down their lives for our freedom are true examples of honor and courage. Pray for the families of our troops and ask for God’s comfort and blessings to fill their homes.

Today's Prayer:

Dear Lord, thank You for the dedicated men and women who serve in our armed forces. We pause in remembrance of those who have gone before them, often serving in harm’s way to protect the liberties we enjoy today.
