Veterans' Day prayer


Dear God,

Throughout our history, a select few have stepped forward time and again to defend us from aggression and malice.

Thank You for the selfless sacrifices these men and women have made to serve the cause of freedom, truth, and peace.

We honor and revere these veterans today: those who rest in honored glory, those who still suffer from the wounds of war, and those who, with us, enjoy the blessing of living in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Help us to remember them, to pray for them, and to care for them.

Dear Father, we can never thank You enough for the privilege of living in America, where we still enjoy the gifts of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. May we fight to keep these rights available to all. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

Father Richard MacDonald
