Dear God, Thank You for the men and women who protect us and preserve Your gifts of life, country, and freedom at home and abroad, even at the sacrifice of their own lives. They and their families are the true heroes among us. Today we remember all those who have laid down their lives so that we can continue to enjoy the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Let Your perpetual light shine upon them, and grant them eternal rest. Please send out Your angels to protect all who serve our country, and keep us free from injustice and harm. In Jesus' Name we pray. Amen.
Ways to Observe This Day: Visit cemeteries and place flags or flowers on the graves of our fallen heroes. Visit local memorials. Fly the U.S. Flag at half-staff until noon. Fly the POW/MIA Flag. Pray for all who serve our United States in the Armed Forces throughout the World.
