For a Way to Recognize Those Who Served Our Country

November 12, 2018

Today I’m thankful for a way to recognize those who served our country —

A Litany from The Book of Worship for United States Forces (1974) One-time permission to print and use this litany in congregational worship has been granted by The Armed Forces Chaplains’ Board, Washington, D.C.

Leader: Let us give thanks to God for the land of our birth with all its chartered liberties. For all the wonder of our country’s story:

People: We give you thanks, O God.

Leader: For leaders in nation and state, and for those who in days past and in these present times have labored for the commonwealth:

People: We give you thanks, O God.

Leader: For those who in all times and places have been true and brave, and in the worlds common ways have lived upright lives and ministered to their fellows:

People: We give you thanks, O God.

Leader: For those who served their country in its hour of need:

People: We give you thanks, O God.
