Pray For Our Veterans


God of peace, we pray for those who have served our nation and who laid down their lives to protect and defend our freedom.
We pray for those who have fought, whose spirits and bodies are scarred by war, whose nights are haunted by memories too painful for the light of day.
We pray for those who serve us now, especially for those in harm's way. Shield them from danger and bring them home.
Turn the hearts and minds of our leaders and our enemies to the work of justice and a harvest of peace.
Let the peace you left us,the peace you gave us,be the peace that sustains,the peace that saves us.

What a lovely prayer. Thanks for sharing.

P.S. I used to build forts when I was little too and loved it. We used to take all the couch cushions off every single couch and play in it all day.
