Today is Memorial Day; a time set aside since the Civil War to
honor our fallen military and remember their sacrifice and commitment
on our behalf. Over time, it has evolved to also honor those living who
have served or are serving.
I ask you to pray for our nation; for a restoration of the principals and values
for which our armed men and women died in the past.
I ask for prayer for those families who have lost loved ones in service to this
country, or who have wounded warriors struggling to make a new life.
I ask you to thank God for those who have served in the past, and pray for those
young people currently serving; that God would protect and guide them, and
provide for their families at home.
And if you are a veteran, or currently serving, I thank God for YOU, and for your
service to this country!
