Prayer for Veterans Day

Dear God,

On this Veterans Day, we pray in gratitude for the gifts of liberty, security, and peace that the veterans and active service members of the US military have worked so tirelessly to preserve.

On this day we honor the veterans of our school community –alumni, faculty and staff, living and deceased—who have given so much in the defense of our nation's ideals. May God bless them and may God bless our country.

We ask that You, O God, help us to remember and honor those who served and continue to serve. May their examples encourage all of us to act in service to our community and country. Grant us wisdom as we seek liberty, security, and peace for everyone who lives in this nation and throughout your world.
