Prayer Before worship God, our Father, on this day we come together to remember those who gave their lives for our country and, in our own way, to say ‘Thank You.’ We remember also our loved ones who have died, for they have left no less a mark on our lives. In this time of worship, renew our gratitude and love for those who have fought the good fight of faith and have entered into Your heavenly kingdom. Amen
In Today’s Worship: This Weekend Our Nation Pauses To Celebrate Memorial Day –
It is certainly fitting that we remember that God has richly blessed this nation with brave men and women who have served their country in the Armed Forces. Yet, our thankfulness to the Lord includes not only military veterans, but also all those who have gone before us. We now build on the foundation laid by faithful men and women of God. We are blessed by their lives, even as they are now blessed with Jesus in heaven.
