A Prayer for Memorial Day

May 29, 2017

Almighty God,

for those who have sacrificed themselves

and given their lives for the sake of others,

we lift up our thankful hearts.


For the dear friends and family members

whose faces we see no more,

but whose love is with us forever,

we lift up our thankful hearts.


We hold them in continual remembrance,

and ever think of them with you,

in that city whose gates are not shut by day

and where there is not night.


O Lord, save your people and bless their heritage. Amen.


—Based on words by John Hunter, Scotland, 20th Cent.
