A Harmony Pastor Feedback: Pause for Prayer: VETERANS DAY 2021

Here’s my Veterans Day Prayer adopted by a prayer from Alden Solovy at To Bend Light. You would possibly need to share these prayers with veterans you okaynow…

Prayer for Veterans Day

God of peace,
we pray for individuals who have served our nation,
who answered the decision to guard and defend
the freedom and freedom
of every person…

God of affection,
we pray for individuals who fought,
who put their lives on the road,
not counting the price to themselves,
giving away of all that they had
that others would possibly freely stay…

God of therapeutic,
we pray for these whose our bodies are scarred
by the disaster of battle, the wages of struggle;
we pray for these whose nights are haunted
by recollections too painful
for the sunshine of day…

God of eternal mercy,
flip our hearts and minds
to the pursuit of concord,
the work of justice
and a harvest of peace…

Might the peace you supply us,
the peace you give us,
be the peace that sustains,
delivers and saves us…

Christ Jesus, hear us!
Lord Jesus, hear our prayer!


To the Soldier, To the Veteran

These items I have no idea:

The sound of a bullet.
The facility of a blast.
The blood of a comrade.
The depth of your wound.
The fear at midnight.
The dread at daybreak.
Your worry or your ache.

These items I do know:

The sound of your honor.
The facility of your braveness.
The blood of your wound.
The depth of your power.
The fear that binds you.
The dread that continues to be.
Your dignity and your valor.

For this stuff I pray:

The sound of your laughter.
The facility of your voice.
The blood of your craving.
The depth of your therapeutic.
The enjoyment that frees you.
The hope that continues to be.
Your wholeness and your love.
