Veterans Parade Prayer

Veterans Parade Prayer
November 8, 2014
Gordonsville, VA


Almighty God,
On this crisp, cool November Day
That You have made,
The day we have set aside to remember and honor,
We come to You with grateful hearts
In Thanksgiving and celebration.
We Thank You for our lives,
That we have a community,
Made safer through the sacrifices
Of the men and women we honor today,
Veterans, who have given of their time,
Their youth, their energy, even their lives
For the benefit of each of us.
Let us never forget,
But always remember
The price of Peace,
The cost of Freedom,
And the responsibility that Love demands.
We hold their service up to You
With every bit of honor,
We can give.
We honor the good they have done,
The good they are doing,
And the good they will do,
All to the glory of Your Holy Name,

Amen.
