Veterans Day is a day where we honor and remember all of the brave women and men who have served our great country and those who are currently enlisted.
Many of these individuals have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom.
Whether or not you know a Veteran, it is important to acknowledge and express gratitude for their service to our nation.
One way you can do that is with prayer.
Veterans Day Prayer
God of compassion, God of dignity and strength,

Bless them with wholeness and love.
Shelter them. Heal their wounds, comfort their hearts.
Grant them peace.
God of justice and truth, rock of our lives, bless our Veterans,
these women and men of courage and valor,
with a deep and abiding understanding of our profound gratitude.
Protect them and their families from loneliness and want.
Grant them lives of joy and bounty.
May their dedication and honor be remembered as a blessing
from generation to generation.
