Memorial Day prayer of thanksgiving & protection
Lord of heaven and earth,
We love you.
Thank you for your unparalleled grace on us as a nation
by giving us the freedom to pursue you and your calling to serve and worship you.
We enjoy the blessings of abundance and opportunity
because servicemen and women and their families
have sacrificed comfort, protection and their lives to provide us with freedom.
Lord, pour out your comfort and blessing on our armed forces and their families.
Stave off the loneliness.
Protect them from dangers, within and without.
Fill them with your mission and purpose.
May the Holy Spirit fill our bases, our ships, and our aircraft.
Bring revival and comfort to these who give and suffer loss.
Thank you for your provision for us who enjoy America.
May we take advantage of all that you have supplied for us.
In Jesus' name, Amen.
