On this Memorial Day, please join Council 12889 in prayer for all those who gave their lives in service to our country.
Prayer for Memorial Day
God of power and mercy,
you destroy war and put down earthly pride.
Banish violence from our midst and wipe away our tears,
that we may all deserve to be called your sons
Keep in your mercy those men and women
who have died in the cause of freedom
and bring them safely
into your kingdom of justice and peace.
We ask this though Jesus Christ our Lord.
Let us also pray for all veteran and active duty sailors, soldiers, marines, and coast guardsmen. May God bless them and their families. May He send his angels to watch over and protect them as they watch over and protect the citizens of our country.
