A Prayer for Armistice Day
Dear Lord, Today we honor our veterans, worthy men and women who gave their best when they were called upon to serve and protect their country. We pray that you will bless them, Lord, for their unselfish service; bless them abundantly for the hardships they faced, for the sacrifices they made.
We respect them, we thank them, we honor them, we are proud of them, and we pray that you will watch over these special people and bless them with peace and happiness. In Jesus’ name we pray for Peace in this beautiful world. Amen.
Praying for veterans is important, and not only praying for the individuals we know, but also for those we don’t know. Resonating with faith means more than centering Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior – instead it also means identifying yourself with the Christian community. As you pray for veterans, know that these Christian men and women protected their country – which you also identify as yours. Their selflessness displays an undying amount of fortitude and determination that cannot be explained. Veterans pledge their allegiance in hopes of attaining peace on earth and while you’re not on the front lines with them, know that your prayers fuel their soul.
