PRAYER FOR VETERANS
Most Holy One,
you rule over all nations.
Today this nation thanks you
for the brave men and women
who serve and have served in the military.
Even now, guard them and give them compassion,
especially for those who confront them as enemies.
Keep our children from hate that hardens,
or from scorekeeping with human lives.
Though in this season
we are a people at war,
let us all live for peace,
as eager for agreement as for victory.
Give encouragement to those serving now throughout the world.
Give peace to those who still hold memories of the horror of war.
As we acknowledge you as the God of Peace,
let us never lose sight of the vision
that we are all brothers and sisters,
members of one family
always called to be faithful to You.
Let us not become weary of doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up -- Galatians 6-9
vision without action is a dream. action without vision is simply passing the time.
Action With Vision is making a positive difference.
