Monday Musings

A few random thoughts and ponderings to start the week...

It has been a busy weekend with little time to write, so I will only say that I wish blessings for all on this Memorial Day!

Dear Heavenly Father,

With a sober heart
we come before You this Memorial Day.
We pause for a moment
and call to mind all the men and women
who have died in the service of our nation.

Dear God, please look with mercy
on our brave and selfless brothers and sisters,
who did not shirk from their task
but gave themselves completely
to the cause of defending and protecting us all.
Bless all who have given their lives for the sake of liberty,
and grant them eternal rest with You.

We remember also our brave men and women
now serving in our Armed Forces,
both at home and abroad.
Dear God, send out Your angels to protect them all.
Help them discharge their duties honorably and well.
Please bring them safely home
to their families and loved ones.
Please bring Your peace and mercy
to our troubled world.

We ask this, Father,
in the name of Jesus, Your Son,
our Savior and Lord.
