Memorial Day Prayer

In the quiet sanctuaries of our own hearts, let each of us name and call on the One whose power over us is great and gentle, firm and forgiving, holy and healing…

You who created us, who sustain us, who call us to live in peace, hear our prayer this day.

Hear our prayer for all who have died, whose hearts and hopes are known to you alone…

Hear our prayer for those who put the welfare of others ahead of their own and give us hearts as generous as theirs…

Hear our prayer for those who gave their lives in the service of others, and accept the gift of their sacrifice…

Help us to shape and make a world where we will lay down the arms of war and turn our swords into ploughshares for a harvest of justice and peace…

Comfort those who grieve the loss of their loved ones and let your healing be the hope in our hearts…

Hear our prayer this day and in your mercy answer us in the name of all that is holy.

Amen.
