Memorial Day Prayer

Memorial Day is on May 28th and has great significance for the people of United States of America especially for the families who lost someone on the battlefield. On this day people go to the graves which hold individuals from the military who served from the Civil War to Operation Iraqi Freedom. Each rank from the most reduced to the most elevated is spoken to. A portion of those covered in Arlington died young, on a dynamic obligation. Some died old, decades after leaving the military. The religious images engraved on the headstones incorporated the Latin cross, Star of David, Star, and Crescent and much more. Some have no religious images. The names on the graves represent individuals from everywhere throughout the planet, reminding us why it is frequently said that the U.S. military is the world’s most differing association. On this Memorial Day plan a visit to the graveyard and pray for the families who lost their someone on the battlefield.

    If it is your will, 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 sinful souls that surpasses all understanding. Keep us repentant of sin. Move us to know, take hold and treasure your saving grace.
