A Memorial Day Prayer

Memorial Day Prayer

A prayer solemn
I offer this Memorial Day:
It is for our valiant Veterans
I do humbly pray.

Selfless, sacrificial,
Risking death gallantly –
Soldiers do all this
To ensure I am free.

So many have died
There on the battleground;
No music then to comfort,
Simply gun blasts all around.

So many names and faces
That I will never know;
So many stories of bravery
In warring winds did blow.

Grateful am I to these
Men and Women brave;
I marvel at all they did,
All they risked, all they gave.

Extend this heartfelt prayer
I will, to reach their ears;
How treasured they are to me,
Marching onward despite fears!

Remembering All The Service Members Of The Five Branches Of Service
Remembering All The Service Members Of The Five Branches Of Service, Including All The Special Forces Stemming From These Five, A Heart Felt Thank You To All Of Us!

And for those who have passed,
May God bless them lavishly,
These very ones who died
So that I would live free.

In the stories of Veterans
I see a shadow of the Cross:
Christ died to set me free,
My gain is through His loss.

Gratefully I praise these heroes,
Often silent and unknown.
And I remember Christ’s blood
From which eternal life is known.

To those who have fought
There on the battleground,
I pray God’s blessings to you
Will eternally abound.

Selfless, sacrificial,
Risking death gallantly –
Yes, you have done all this
To ensure I am free .

A prayer solemn then
I offer this Memorial Day:
It is for you, valiant Veterans,
I now humbly pray.
