Heavenly Father, during this weekend of Memorial Day,

I lift up to you each man and woman who has given service to our nation,

especially those who, because of their sacrifice, have returned disabled.


Be with them in their darkest hours.

When they feel weak, give them your comfort.

When they feel despondent, give them your hope.

When they feel like giving up, give them your strength.

                                                                                                              Wrap your care and love around them and their families as they work to heal.

                                                                                                       Give us wisdom to know what we can do to help them, too.


                                                                                                     And fill our hearts with determination

                                                                                                                 To make their way a little easier, their painful return a way to renewal and joy.


                                                                                                          Thank you to all veterans and their families!
