PRAYER OF GRATITUDE FOR OUR VETERANS

God the Father,
Have Mercy upon your Soldiers;
God the Son,
Have Mercy upon your Soldiers;
God the Holy Spirit,
Have Mercy upon your Soldiers.

For Soldiers who have served for our Freedom,
Have compassion on their Sins;
For your Soldiers who served in the course of your people,
Have compassion on their Sins;
For your Soldiers who have fallen in the heat of war,
Have compassion on their Sins;
For Soldiers you have called home,
Have compassion on their Sins;
For family members they left behind,
Have compassion on their Sins;
For Soldiers who have felt no gratitude from your children,
Have compassion on their Sins;
For the living who have benefitted from the sacrifice of life by your Soldiers,
Have compassion on their Sins.

For our political leaders who make decisions that take our children to war,
Look kindly upon their Sins;
For our youth who are about to be sent to war,
Look kindly upon their Sins;
For our middle-age who are about to be shipped to war,
Look kindly upon their Sins;
For our elderly who reminiscent about the challenges of war,
Look kindly upon their Sins;
For parents, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles who grief and never forget their loved ones who have gone yonder,
Look kindly upon their Sins;
For Wives, Sons, and daughters who bear the immediate burden of holding forth while our soldiers go to war,
Look kindly upon their Sins;
For those retired veteran who have served and occasionally romanticized about going to war again,
Look kindly upon their Sins.
For those honorable Heroes and Heroines who have come through this earth and remain in glory,
Look kindly upon their Sins.

Now to him that is able to do all things beyond the expectation of any man, be honor, glory and majesty. Amen.

P.S.
If this will console any member of our nation who feels any grief tonight, let him or her remember the words of the book of First Thessalonians 4: 15-18. To my brothers and sister’s in Judaism: " Ha makom yinachem etchem btoch sh'ar avlei tzion v'yrushalayim." May the sheltering God comfort you among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem. To my Muslim brothers and sister, recall Surah 21; 103-104 – The supreme Awesomeness of the day of Resurrection will cause them no grief, since angels will receive them with greeting, this is your day of triumph which you were promised. To all other people of faith, May the Peace of Almighty and Everlasting God be with you all. Amen.
