“their devotion to duty and suffering”

30 May 2016



O God and Father of us all, we praise thee in sincere gratitude for all those who, at their country’s call, have met the rude shock of battle, and have surrendered their lives amid the ruthless brutalities of war. Forbid that their suffering and death should be in vain. And we beseech thee, that, through their devotion to duty and suffering, the horrors of war may pass from earth, and that thy kingdom of right and honor, of peace and brotherhood, may be established among all all. Comfort, O Lord, all who mourn the loss of those near and dear to them, especially the families of our departed service members. Support them by thy love. Give them faith to look beyond the trials of the present, and to know that neither life nor death can separate us from the love and care of Christ Jesus, in whose Name we pray. Amen.
