“While only one day of the year is dedicated solely to honoring our veterans, Americans must never forget the sacrifices many of our countrymen have made to defend our country and protect our freedoms.” Congressman Randy Neugebauer
“For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1; NASB)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
This Memorial Day weekend, let’s honor those who made the greatest sacrifice, and also those who daily sacrifice for our freedom. Thank the Lord for those serving in the armed services.
Pray for servicemen and women, especially those you know personally. Ask the Lord to give them strength and grace for their assignments, especially those serving in war zones overseas.
Pray for those who are retired military. Ask the Lord to provide everything they need – provision, jobs, medical care and companionship. Pray against all infirmity of body and mind resulting from their service.
Pray for the families of those who serve. They pay a great price also, in relocations and in dealing with any physical, mental and emotional effects their loved ones may experience.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, thank you for all of the men and women who serve our country in the armed forces. Please grant them grace and strength for the assignments they are given, especially those who are in active warfare for freedom. Meet the deepest needs of those who are now retired from military service. Open doors for their futures and heal them, if need be, body, soul and spirit. Draw them to You and help them know how appreciated they are by those of us who understand. Bless their family members and minister to them, as well. In the Name of Jesus, Amen
We are grateful for the men and women fight daily for our freedom and we pray a blessing over their lives and the lives of their families!
