Prayer For Memorial Day
O Lord of the nations,
we remember before you
with grateful hearts
the men and women
of our country
who in the day of decision
courageously defended
the liberties we now enjoy.
Grant that we may not rest
until all the people of this land
share the benefits of true freedom
and gladly accept its responsibilities.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
