A Prayer For Veterans Day:
Lord who grants salvation to kings and dominion to rulers, whose kingdom is a kingdom spanning all eternities; Who places a road in the sea and a path in the mighty waters – may you bless and protect the military of these United States of America, may they complete their mission quickly, and return home safely.
We pray for those who sacrifice daily — men and women who serve to protect, in our local communities and around the globe – those who serve in our armed forces and our veterans who served.
Compassionate God, creator of the Universe, on this Veteran’s Day and every day, may you bless those who served, who put themselves in harm’s way to protect these United States and may you ensure that they are treated with the honor and respect that they deserve.
Lord please also protect the families of those who serve, and have served, Let us be mindful of their great sacrifice as well. As their loved ones fight for us, let us extend our hands and our hearts to them.
May you give strength to the doctor’s treating the wounded, and provide comfort to those who have lost loved ones.
For those who have lost their lives, May you grant comfort to their loved ones.
May the President, the Vice President, and all the constituted officers of the government of this land make the correct decisions to protect our heroes lives and bring them home in victory. May they ensure that those who have served get the quality medical help we promised them. May our elected officials execute their responsibilities with intelligence, honor, and compassion.
And may these United States continue to be the land of the free and the home of the brave.
