Dear Heavenly Father;
We bow before you this morning and acknowledge your glory and your power.
We praise you for your hand in history that has brought us to be a free people who stand for liberty at home and around the world.
On this Memorial Day, we honor those who have sacrificed much for our freedom—some with their lives and others with the lives of their loved ones. We ask today that you will continue to walk beside those families of our fallen service members—that you will watch over them and keep them.
We ask, also, that we will never take those sacrifices for granted and that we will always cherish our liberty and use it to bring you all of the Glory and the Honor.
In Jesus Name, I pray; Amen
