Memorial Day is a time for rest and time for celebration. Schools for the most part are out which means summer break is underway. Memorial Day weekend is a time for travel and time when families gather for picnics, bbq’s, and camping.
While there is no way to adequately say thank you to the families who have lost so much, there is something we all can do. We can pray this Memorial Day.
- We can pray a prayer of thanksgiving this Memorial Day for the men and women who lost their lives while to protect our our country and our freedom.
- We can pray a prayer of gratitude this Memorial Day for the families who sacrificed so much while they were away only to learn they were not coming home.
- We can pray a prayer for protection this Memorial Day for all those who currently serve so they may stay out of harms way.
1 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
May God’s comfort and love be abundantly felt by all the families who have lost a loved one while serving in the Armed Forces this Memorial Day!
