Lord God, Heavenly Father, we thank you for all the blessings you have bestowed on us. But most of all we thank you for your everlasting, unconditional love. We love you too. Fill us with your holy spirit so we may follow your holy will.
We thank our men and women in uniform, and the veterans before them, who are, and have so freely sacrificed so much to ensure our freedom. For they have kept our country free. God bless and protect them. And grant their families the strength to endure the pain of loss and separation.
From the battlefield of Valley Forge to the mountains of Afghanistan they have followed the call.
