We Remember

Today we commemorate the invasion of the allied troops on the shores of the beaches in Normandy, France.  Commonly referred to as “D-day” it marks one of the largest military amphibious assaults.  As we remember this day let us call to mind all the men and women who have served in our armed services through countless battles who because of their great sacrifices we may enjoy our freedom.  Let us take a moment to pray a special prayer for all those who have served or will serve.  Lord God, Almighty Father, creator of humankind and author of peace, as we are ever mindful of the cost paid for the liberty we possess, we ask you to bless the members of our armed forces. Give them courage, hope and strength.  May they ever experience your firm support, gentle love and compassionate healing.  Be their power and protector, leading them from darkness to light.  To you be all glory, honor and praise, now and forever.  Amen.  May we always strive to live in peace and harmony!
