As we commemorate Veteran’s Day,
We pray for those men and women willing to sacrifice their lives for the cost of freedom.
May their service and sacrifice inspire us all to follow in the selfless example of your Son,
Bless the families of our veterans
, those who still hold their servicemen and servicewomen close,
And those who mourn the loss of a veteran this year.
Fill all of their lives with hope, blessings and peace.
Help all of us to emulate their call to serve in our own ways,
So that our hearts, united with the hearts of all veterans, living and deceased,
Answer the call to work for peace and justice.
Together, let us work for an end to violence and conflict the world over.
Hold our veterans, today and every day, in Your loving grace.
