Dear St. Paul Hermitage Families and Friends,
As we celebrate Memorial Day tomorrow, let us remember all the men and women who died while serving the United States Armed Forces. I invite you to join me in prayer this prayer:
As our nation pauses today
to remember those in the military who have given their lives
for freedoms we enjoy,
we pray you would have us all look to you for strength,
comfort and guidance.
Be with all who serve in our Armed Forces.
Bless them and their families.
Grant your loving protection.
Let peace prevail among all the nations, O God.
Especially let your mercy rest upon our land,
even as we acknowledge with thanksgiving
your past goodness on this country.
Preserve the lives of the men and women in uniform
as they defend our citizenry.
Most of all, we pray that you would turn the hearts of all
- military and civilian – to
your holy Word where we find the true peace for our souls
that surpasses all understanding.
Keep us repentant of sin.
Move us to know, take hold and treasure your saving grace.
In this peace and hope for eternity, we pray through Jesus Christ our Lord.
