Memorial Day Prayer
God, our Creator and Sustainer,
today our country brings to our memory
those who have defended this nation in times of trouble.
They have sacrificed their lives to protect our shores from those who would limit our freedoms or enslave us to ways that are against your will. Bring all those who have died in service to our country into your heavenly presence.
We humbly call down your blessing on those still
serving; grant your heavenly protection to these
men and women,and open your Sacred Heart
to give them peace and comfort.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit.
