Salute to Our Veterans — God bless you All

Veterans sacrifice so that those of us who remain behind, may retain our freedom. Too often they are ignored or demeaned when they should be saluted and honored. Veterans Day is set aside by a one time grateful nation to do just that, honor and salute those who have served and sacrificed. While I am no longer sure that this nation is grateful for the sacrifice given, I know that I am. This post is a reminder to honor those who have served and are serving. If you love our Vets please take a moment to pray for them and pray for peace. Perhaps one day soon, it will no longer be needed for some to sacrifice for others.

Veteran’s Day Prayer

Dear Lord,
Today we honor our veterans,
worthy men and women
who gave their best
when they were called upon
to serve and protect their country.
We pray that you will bless them, Lord,
for their unselfish service
in the continual struggle
to preserve our freedoms, our safety,
and our country’s heritage, for all of us.
Bless them abundantly
for the hardships they faced,
for the sacrifices they made
for their many different contributions
to America’s victories
over tyranny and oppression.
We respect them, we thank them,
we honor them, we are proud of them,
and we pray that you will watch over
these special people
and bless them with peace and happiness.
In Jesus’ name we pray; Amen.
