WWII memorial in Washington, D.C.

Today, we remember those who gave their lives in service to our nation. We also offer this prayer for those in the armed forces who are currently serving:

Almighty God, we commend to your gracious care and keeping all the men and women of our armed forces at home and abroad. Defend them day by day with your heavenly grace; strengthen them in their trials and temptations; give them courage to face the perils which beset them; and grant them a sense of your abiding presence wherever they may be; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
