Prayer for Veterans Day
Lord of hosts, quiet heroes surround us. They are our doctors, our letter carriers, our machinists, our accountants, our co-workers, our fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, our neighbors and our best friends. Under their civilian attire beats hearts that will for a lifetime be proudly wrapped in the uniforms of the United States Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. We honor their service and do not take lightly the sacrifices they have made to secure freedom from tyranny, fear and oppression. These heroes quietly carry with them the memories of those who did not return home. We especially pray for those brutally killed at Fort Hood. Bring healing to their friends and family...and to us. We owe those who served our gratitude, and ask You to bless them and their loved ones. This we pray, in Your strong and mighty Name, Amen.
