Our Heavenly Father, our hearts are filled will appreciation for those who donned the uniform of this great nation to offer their minds, bodies, and even their lives to defend the United States of America and promote liberty.
Many in our communities still bear the wounds of battle and trauma that often accompanies military service. May they and their loved ones feel strengthened and supported by the gratitude of not only the American people, but of those around the world who see this country as a beacon of hope and freedom.
We ask your blessings upon these patriots and thank you for the precious gift of their lives to our country and community.
We offer this prayer in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ—who laid down His own life for us.
