Prayer For Veterans

A Prayer For Those Who Served in the Military


Most churches, including the Catholic Church, urge and pray for peace, but recognize the possibility that fighting in a just war could be the best option available. Regardless of your view on war, it is important to pray for those who have fought in wars. This prayer is appropriate for Veteran's Day in the United States, which is celebrated on November 11th.

Veterans Prayer
O Judge of the nations,
we remember before you
with grateful hearts
the men and women
of our country
who in the day of decision
ventured much for 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 disciplines.
This we ask in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Book of Common Prayer
